## Summary:

  # Modus themes for GNU Emacs

  IMAGES HERE: <https://protesilaos.com/emacs/modus-themes-pictures>.

  Highly accessible themes, conforming with the highest standard for
  colour contrast between background and foreground values (WCAG AAA).
  They also are optimised for users with red-green colour deficiency.

  The themes are very customisable and provide support for a very wide
  range of packages.  Their manual is detailed so that new users can get
  started, while it also provides custom code for all sorts of more
  advanced customisations.

## Recent NEWS:


This document contains the release notes that are included in each
tagged commit on the project's main git repository:

The newest release is at the top.  Since the notes are meant to be in
plain text format, I copy them verbatim.

All themes except the tritanopia ones have a new hover colour

  The previous colour was not sufficiently distinct from what each theme
  defines for the `bg-completion' palette entry (preview a palette with
  `M-x modus-themes-preview-colors' or `M-x
  modus-themes-preview-colors-current').  This would make it hard to
  spot the difference while, for example, using `vertico-mode' in tandem
  with `vertico-mouse-mode'.

  Same principle for the difference between the mouse hover and lazy
  isearch highlights (e.g. in Dired or Occur buffers).

  Changing the hue here follows the same principle that underpinned the
  redesign of the grey backgrounds for version 4 of the project:
  depending on hardware capabilities, colour reproduction may not be
  optimal, so we need to be more considerate with the choice of colour
  values, erring on the side of caution.

  The `modus-operandi-tritanopia' and `modus-vivendi-tritanopia' themes
  are not affected by this initiative, as they already used highly
  distinct hues.

  Thanks to Daniel Mendler for bringing this matter to my attention and
  for testing the proposed alternatives.  This was done via a private
  channel and the information is shared with permission.  Daniel is the
  developer of `vertico', among many other excellent packages:

Japanese holidays have the expected style

  Japanese calendars style Saturdays uniquely and the Modus themes now
  do the same for those who use the `japanese-holidays' package.
  Saturdays show up in a blue colour (which changes to cyan for the
  `modus-operandi-tritanopia', `modus-vivendi-tritanopia' themes).

  Each theme's palette has a new semantic colour mapping called
  `date-holiday-other', just in case we ever encounter another scenario
  like this one (users can override any entry in the palette—consult the
  manual for the technicalities).

  Thanks to Olaf Meeuwissen for bringing this package to my attention
  and showing me how traditional Japanese calendars style Saturdays.
  This was done in issue 311 on the GitLab mirror:

Each theme has semantic colour mappings for terminal emulators

  These are used by `ansi-term', `vterm', and the like.  The idea is to
  empower users to differentiate background and foreground values,
  should they ever encounter a need to do so (when in doubt, do

  By convention, terminal emulators use the same value for both
  background and foreground, although this is not optimal with high
  contrast themes because what works as a foreground does not
  necessarily look nice as a background.

  The default values of the new mappings retain the prior state, just to
  not break existing configurations.  Consider this a tacit user option
  for those who really need it.

  Thanks to Tony Zorman for reporting the problem that provided the
  impetus for this change:

All theme definitions conform with the latest standard for metadata
