Sorry for the late reply, I am not reading this list quite often and I
suggest you open an issue next time on GitHub :)

For the colors issue, there was a bug in 1.68 that was not resetting the
colors properly, and this was fixed in 1.69. Now the color scheme is not
at best for your setup indeed. I worked on this with the default scheme
on Windows. I am happy to receive any suggestions to improve this!
