thanks Paul for the nice job! The colorful hexa-shaped logo seems much prettier.

One point/suggestion - if the letters "TEX" shared the same background - be it e.g. light gray - it might be cleaner how to read ("discover") the word "ConTeXt"; it would also keep the hexagonal shape, associating chemistry; and it would also indicate or highlight relation to "TeX".

But keep my notion or feeling just personal; the new logo is "nice enough" as published on wiki.

Best regards,

To answer your questions: I tried to avoid any logic or rainbow-type color sequence to create something more unique. The first square had to be in blue and the middle area in a warm color. (I played around a lot with the color combinations.) Regarding the outside circle: I tried different variations, with and without a surrounding circle or round background, with and without rounded squares, and was most pleased with this solution. It's true, "clean and simple" can easily lead to "too informal".
