Adwaita Icon Theme (former GNOME Icon Theme) slightly changes their colors, for a better contrast. The changes are from Nikita Churaev yesterday (#729656).

Caret Symbolic Icons
Together with the changes on the folders icons, we also have the addition of 4 caret-arrows symbolic icons that are suitable as replacement for GtkArrow (#729565).
