K New Stuff (or Get Hot New Stuff) is an integrated data service which allows users to share and download themes, templates, wallpapers, and more through a single click of a button in the application.
== Guidelines ==
KNS is not able to install files that are hosted on third-party websites, it is important that every KNS button is accompanied by a button to install a resource from a local file.
The text of a KNS button should be made of these parts:
*Icon: use get-hot-new-stuff.png
*Instruction: "Get New"
*Object: The type of file the user will download
*Ellipsis: To indicate the user must provide additional input to complete the task
