Is there any chance that we can download the older files? I'm on Xubuntu 16.04 and it's using GTK 3.18. Thanks!

Unfortunately I don't have those files anymore.
GTK 3.2+ is supported from Ubuntu 17.04 (Zesty) onwards, so unless you have good reason not to, consider upgrading. :)

I prefer LTS release so I guess I have to wait until 18.04 comes out :). Thank you!

Nice one. :)
Small tip. If you want better panel applet integration with the panel background, open panel preferences --> apperance --> background and select usr-> share-> themes-> Plasma Fire_> gtk-2.0-> Panel-> dark-bottom.png
HEADS-UP: I am starting to consider raising the text brightness a bit higher for backdrop windows so they can be read side by side with a focused window better but still discernible by state. Disabled text will remain as is.
Also, I'm considering having a gentle coloured all edges border around input text entry boxes to stand out better against button widgets.

Addendum to the above: Not all applets are an issue.
System-load-monitor, Free-Space-Checker, Network-Monitor, Disk-Performance-Monitor have better border outline if tip above is used.

Thanks! I'm gonna try that when I'm back at home but it doesn't look bad the way it is.

Info Update: Refactoring of the widget CSS file is ongoing. Code tidy ups, reordering and optimising (I'm still guessing on some bits) to improve notably:
Check and Radio items have been image adjusted for better consistency across all states. Also now work correctly when window is backdropped on desktop.
Notebook tabs have been implemented more correctly for borders and now have a backdrop desaturated active tab indication.
I have increased the backdrop text brightness slightly (as planned above).
Changes are subtle, but were invoked due to strange scrolling issue in Exaile music player (new beta GTK3). Hope to upload soon(ish), dependent on my observations. :)

Use this add-on to fix the input entry issue:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/text-contrast-for-dark-themes/?src=api

The sidebar works how I would expect it to. Black theme -> black sidebar.
Most of the time I am using css dark override via Stylish plugin anyway so..
Anyway, hope this helps. cheers.

Welcome to the joy of dark themes. It is an eternal struggle. Dark against the light. This is the reality. You will have to delve into the world of CSS user styles to fight your good fight. I cannot help anymore now.
As an aside, your example photo (and URL) will show white text against that black background in those boxes. Just what I'd expect. For more options have a look here:- https://userstyles.org/
Dissect and modify. :)

On my Ubuntu setup I installed Terminator but found no apparent issue as you describe. I use Xfce4-Terminal anyway, but they look the same regarding tabs, to me.

Thank you. Theme owners are fickle beasts, always tweaking for that little extra evolution. :)
While I'm here, there is a small bug with the 'Fire' variant (I'll fix when additional changes are needed). When a window with a horizontal progress bar is backdropped (unfocused) it doesn't go from orange to monochrome as intended. Simply copy image file 'progressbar-backdrop-horiz.png' from either the blue or green variants into the 'Plasma Fire/gtk-3.0/darkelkements/' folder, over writing the existing one.
Enjoy.

As of version 3.25.9x, Gnome-Evolution started displaying white borders around the search/toolbars.
Changing the colour definition: 'borders_color' to 'borders' throughout the gtk-contained-dark.css has fixed the issue.

2.1 6 months ago

ENHANCEMENTS: Search/spin button text entry areas restyled to integrate inside GTK3 header/title bars (see image #5) for unbroken visual continuity. This applies to all GTK3 applications proper. If user preferred, the V 2.0 css file is included as gtk-contained-dark-original.
FIXES: Level bar colours working correctly again on each variant (e.g. Baobab disk usage tool) and backdrop progress bar corrected on 'Fire' variant (now monochrome as intended). Returned to squared off (rectangle) style for progress bars due to scaling issues on LibreOffice (possibly others).

Ver 2.0 11 months ago

Discovered that GTK3 notebook tabs (left/right facing) were incorrect. Now fixed (hopefully).
Notebook tabs slightly reworked for better look between active and normal states and GTK2/GTK3.
Backdrop (unfocused) windows slider controls (hover/pre-light) now muted on mouse-over.

Ver 1.9 1 year ago

Reworked/styled spinner buttons/entry (separately for GTK2 & 3). Replaced arrow stepper items for GTK2 & 3 (same style). Added coloured borders to text/search entry (GTK3 only) and spinner items also. Replaced arrows in GTK2 to closely match GTK3. Fixed CSS errors preventing GTK3 backdrop changes from working (not seen with Debian!). Small tweaking of hover/prelight items for scrollbars and sliders. Borders/frames colour reduced (dimmed). Left,right and bottom active tabs now same as top active tab. Other things surely missed...
Note: Issue with widget hover function not working when running Evolution email via alltray utility is unresolved.

Small fix 18a 1 year ago

Fixed typo error at line 1140 in gtk-contained-dark.css
Fixed text brightness in lightdm-gtk-greeter.css
-------------------------------
Note: Still to come, border colour for Xfce4-notification pop up, when it works (GTK3 version) on Debian.
