Sorry also from my side for not catching this issue before the release. Thanks a lot Jonah and everybody involved in finding and fixing the dark mode issue.

Subject: [cross-project-issues-dev] CPP and Embed CPP 2020-12 in Dark Mode
Hello folks,

The 2020-12 EPPs for CPP and Embed CPP have a serious problem in Dark Mode that is now resolved. The dialogs were being rendered as black text on a black background. See Bug 569790 for more details. In addition to those EPPs, it can also affect users installing Trace Compass into other versions.

As I have had this report come in via numerous channels I thought I could send this out widely so if you see something similar you can point people in the right direction.

I have put the workaround in CDT's N&N Release Notes and reproduced it here for reference:

This can be resolved by either updating the Trace Compass Plug-ins in the install or removing the Trace Compass plug-ins if not used. To update the plug-ins do this:

  1. From Window menu -> choose Preferences
  2. navigate to Install/Update -> Available Software Sites
  3. Press Add...
  4. Name Tracecompass updates and Location
  5. Press Add
  6. Press Apply and Close
  7. From Help menu -> Check for Updates and finish the wizard.
  8. After restarting the Dark Mode will be fixed.

Thanks and sorry for not catching this before the release.
