When GPG Suite in System Preferences would support the dark theme?

    Hi Eugene,

    unfortunately due to restrictions of macOS Catalina, non-Apple Preference Panes can't currently support dark mode.

    hi Luke,

    that is incorrect. I just tested with several non-Apple-Applications on Mojave and Catalina: Dark mode works with all Pref-Panes.

    @Thomas: that certainly is news to us. Good ones though. Could you name one where you are certain that dark mode works?

    tested in 10.15.2 Beta (19C39d); 10.15.1 (19B88); 10.14.6 (18G1012)

    iCalamus, Netnewswire, Tuxera, ClamXAV

    and I have so far not seen a single Application where dark mode does not work in prefs.

    So we have good news. Turns out Dark Mode is supported on macOS Catalina again, and GPG Suite will support it in the upcoming release.

    @Thomas_U: Thanks again for the pointers.

    Thanks, it works.
    But if install RC2 first, then it build didn't see release version update.
