Marcelo, GA is almost the same that RC6. As soon as we had no info about the problem you met, the problem might not to disappear by itself.
I am not sure I already understand how to reproduce of what you have on your side.
Could you provide more details or may be the test application where the problem is reproduced.
yes - this is a sample skin for configuring our app:
#Colors headerBackgroundColor=#6598CB headerGradientColor=#6598CB headerTextColor=#FFFFFF headerWeightFont=bold generalBackgroundColor=#FFFFFF generalTextColor=#EEEEEE generalSizeFont=11px generalFamilyFont=Arial, Verdana, sans-serif controlTextColor=#000000 controlBackgroundColor=red additionalBackgroundColor=#336699 shadowBackgroundColor=#000000 shadowOpacity=1 panelBorderColor=#C0C0C0 subBorderColor=#6598CB ....
in web.xml we have:
<context-param> <param-name>org.ajax4jsf.SKIN</param-name> <param-value>MYSKIN</param-value> </context-param>
now, headerBackgroundColor=#6598CB is being ignored. it apperas it uses always generalBackgroundColor=#FFFFFF . again, up to RC3 this was still working correctly for <rich:panle> and <rich:simpleTogglePanel>
