    My goodness. I think macOS has taken mostly palatable and favourable turns over the years, but I've never stopped missing the original dark-style Notification Center when it was delineated by lines and margins, back before individual notifications became bright rounded-rectangle panel things. I've never looked back from the dark menu and Dock, but they leave so much still untouched.

    There have been indications for ages that some kind of system-supported dark appearance has been brewing in macOS' native code – something that would be available to the entire Finder and any supported apps. It seems like some customers have longed for this enough that developers' implementations of their own optional dark interfaces are weighed almost as strongly as major features by them.

    Is it finally time? o _ o

    The problem with that is they (along with everyone else) have been "finding evidence of a full dark mode in the code" for years and years.

    I haven’t been holding my breath for years, but I’ve always been starry-eyed about the prospect – I think this time I’ll at least hold my breath till Monday. ^ _ ^

    I have to say, this recent leaked video clip of Xcode looks consistent with everything I’ve read and seen so far.

    Well, I'm going to say I called that.

    And I'm quite happy. They really mean it. ^ _ ^

    I'm happy to see it as well. I really didn't think they would do it, but I'm happy to be surprised. Now the problem is going to be getting all the app devs to update their apps to fully support it.

    I'm not worried – I think many will be tempted, and some will be too tempted. It looks well-thought-out and easy to adopt. They really do mean it.
