They toned down their default wallpaper quite a bit for the 
later RCs. That square one is no longer the default, if that's 
what you were meaning.

The current KDM theme is basically the old one with the default 
Ethias wallpaper. The proposed one has an enhanced dialog 
graphic with the same Ethias background. (See previous mails 
for screenshots)
