Laurent, I think it's great you've decided to put a deadline on the logo.
I expect this week to be full of news propositions!

And thanks Nexus and eXpl0it3r for these wise words, it was clear we couldn't keep suggesting new ideas forever, especially since it's holding back the SFML 2.0 release.

Ignore the anti-aliasing, it's scaled. Considering only the symbol, the thing I like more in
https://legacy.sfmluploads.org/cache/pics/348_variation7.png than in http://i.imgur.com/h5vyUHh.png
is that it doesn't look so soft/rounded. The first one makes a more... hm, "self-confident" or "resolute" impression :)
Also, the thickness of the power symbol matches the font's thickness better. Maybe we can try with a slightly less round symbol?
But the round logo matches better the roundness of the font... also I'm not a fan of the green, it looks too grey-ish. What about a lighter one, closer to the website banner?

@eigenbom nice variations. I like the last four ones and the double arrow.


Here's a revamp of my previous attemp, I tried to keep a curvy arrow while getting ride of sine wave.



with text reflection:


double arrow:


I'm not sure if the arrow should overlap the first or last letter...

It's cool to see the explosion of ideas! I encourage people to iterate on ideas during this week.

also I'm not a fan of the green, it looks too grey-ish. What about a lighter one, closer to the website banner?
Here are some brighter greens:

1 dark:



2 dark:



3 dark:



4 dark:



5 dark:



6 dark:



1 light:



2 light:



3 light:



4 light:



5 light:



6 light:



imgur album of these images. If you want to compare these brighter greens with the darker greens, here is the imgur album for the darker greens.

The gradients in these images can be very easily modified, so if anyone has any suggestions or ideas it's easy to play with them! And, as always, just let me know and I can provide you with original files.

I think we need a light shadow, so that it looks good on green/gray backgrounds -- like the banner of the website.

I think this is my favorite one.

Me too

me three   :D
Me four. The other one looks too dirty and evil in some way, while this one is clean and happy.

Haze's new logo variation feels too 80's to me.  It's like the 'n' at the end of Designing Women's title.

I really like these two, good work.

Quote from: Haze
The logo is a bit asymmetric: The distances begin-middle and middle-end of the arrow are different, thus the middle is offset to the left, even in spite of the wider letter "M". Also, in my opinion the arrow color is too "boring".
