GNOME’s Text Editor to Get Recoloring Support, Revamped “Open” Popover in GNOME 42

Earlier this year, GNOME Builder creator Christian Hergert started working on a new Text Editor app for the GNOME desktop. In a recent blog post he talks about some of the major changes coming to the next major release of his Text Editor app, which will probably replace Gedit in the upcoming GNOME 42 release.

One of the biggest changes is the introduction of recoloring support based on the controversial libadwaita library, which the GNOME devs use these days to build modern GNOME applications, and using a CSS provider to override the colors in Text Editor’s theme, making it look really awesome.
