$150 Bug Bounty for Fixing a Dark Theme Issue

Zend Studio is an IDE based on the Eclipse Platform. The dark theme is an important feature and is very popular among PHP developers. The most annoying issue with the dark theme, we have at the moment, is that the expand/collapse toggle in trees is almost invisible on Windows, because it seems to be unaffected by the dark theme coloring. See Eclipse bug 434201 for details.



We decided to put some money on the table with the hope that someone will step in and fix this bug. This will benefit not only Zend Studio users, but all Windows users in the Eclipse ecosystem who want to use the dark theme.

We created a $150 bug bounty on the FreedomSponsors crowd-funding platform. Follow this link to open the sponsored issue. Since this is a crowd-funding platform, anyone else who is ready to give some money for resolving this issue is welcome to do it, so the offer becomes more attractive.

UPDATE. The bug has been fixed within days and it will be delivered with the Mars M7 milestone. Thanks to Fabio Zadrozny for his great work. Kudos to Lars Vogel for adding $100 more to the bounty.

    The tree handles looks fine but yet the buttons and some borders are terrible!

    I don't know if in SWT they can do the same of Visual Studio with its better dark theme.

    The question is that today the user do not want a full native experience, I think users want a web like experience in many of the ui elements.
