Emacs: 'ef-arbutus' is now part of the 'ef-themes' collection

ef-arbutus is a legible light theme that blends shades of red and green. I drew inspiration from the beautiful Greek strawberry trees (arbutus andrachne) I encounter in my mountains, which are evergreen and have a deep red bark.

In terms of the overall look and feel, ef-arbutus has a fairly pronounced background colour. This puts it in the same subset as the “elea”, “maris”, and “melissa” variants. Unlike them, though, it has no dark counterpart.

Coming in version 1.5.0 (next stable release)

I may still make some minor tweaks, though the character of the theme will not be altered.

ef-arbutus is the 29th item in the collection. Will there be a 30th and will it be a dark theme? Who knows?

The ef-themes are a collection of light and dark themes for GNU Emacs whose goal is to provide colorful (“pretty”) yet legible options for users who want something with a bit more flair than the modus-themes (also designed by me).
