I was right improving had to do with their bad April Fools, this post is super interesting, they've not only improved light them but made it easier for updating in future!

well I finally got the update on and I think it's going to take some getting used to.

Aside from making the dark parts light they've also super upped the text contrast and it's a little too bold for me at the moment, probably because my eyes are already tired, also spotting which server or channel has a new message is a little challenging at the moment.

But it's a positive step, and almost makes up for their anti-accessibility April Fools and the years of anti light theme trolls.
