The first ones simply mean you are using a theme that hasn't been
updated to use the newer <fontdef> elements to define the fonts. See
this commit for an example of what needs to change.

The second one is similar except it relates to how the color gradient
images are defined. You needs to use a <shape> now instead of the
<image> that was used previously. See this commit for an example of
what needs to change.

At the moment they are just warnings but at some point in the future
both of these will fail to work so the theme will have to be updated
before they it will work properly, that may already be the case in
master can't quite remember if we've already removed them there.
