Adwaita Folder Icons Become “Brighter”

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


While the difference might seems small, it is actually very strong in practice (depending your monitor), that screenshots can’t demonstrate it.

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).
