Version 0.6.0 on 2022-09-23
New tri-chrome themes
The collection now includes two themes which apply shades of magenta,
blue, and teal in most contexts. They are named `ef-trio-dark' and
`ef-trio-light'. I think some of you will like their aesthetics.
The announcement includes screenshots (and it also links to the page
with all the pictures of the themes):
As part of the development, I initially forgot to register the "trio"
themes as part of the collection. Thanks to Sven Seebeck for
informing me about it. (This is shared with permission, as it was
done via a private channel.)
Changes to faces or face groups
⁃ Removed the override for the `org-modern-label' face. We used to
affect its properties, which had the unintended effect of breaking
the functionality of the user option `org-modern-label-border'.
Users of the `org-modern' package may thus notice a difference in
the effective typography that `org-modern-mode' produces.
For the alignment of tables with timestamps (e.g. clocktables), it
is recommended to set the user option `org-modern-timestamp' to nil.
The manual covers this information in the section titled "Tweak
Users who still need help with this are welcome to contact me in
private or via the development channels of the Ef themes (mailing
list or GitHub/GitLab mirrors).
Thanks to Daniel Mendler (the `org-modern' developer) for explaining
the technicalities and correcting errors I made in the previous
version of that entry in the manual:
⁃ Refined the backgrounds of regexp groupings. Commands such as
`re-builder' and `isearch-forward-regexp' apply distinct colours to
matching regexp groups. Those are now optimised to stand out more
when seen side-by-side.
Part of this work involved a thorough review of the applicable hues
used by the `ef-deuteranopia-dark' and `ef-deuteranopia-light' (the
two themes which are designed for users with red-green colour
deficiency). The announcement on my website shows screenshots,
including those which simulate deuteranopia:
⁃ Added support for `display-fill-column-indicator-mode'. Thanks to
Daniel Mendler for informing me about it (this is shared with
permission, as it was done via a private channel).
⁃ Covered two faces that are available on Emacs 29 (current
development target) for Version Control:
Making use of `ef-themes-select' in init files
The manual includes improved language on how to use the function
`ef-themes-select' in user init files. This is for users who need to
leverage the `ef-themes-post-load-hook' at startup (using that hook is
also explained in the manual). Basically, one loads a theme in their
init file with something like:
│ ;; like `load-theme' but also call `ef-themes-post-load-hook'
│ (ef-themes-select 'ef-summer)
