128Springseed, the simple note-taking app for Linux that features full markdown support, quietly pushed out a new release over the weekend.

The open-source app is currently only available on Linux, offering users a minimalistic UI  for writing, storing and categorising notes, thoughts, code snippets, and more. Notes can be synced between computers using the built-in Dropbox sync, though this isn’t required to use the app.

Springseed 2.0

Version 2.0, the first stable update since February, refreshed the application’s UI with a darker, angular new look. The light colour scheme and custom window frames of version 1.1 have been replaced by a dark sidebar with large typography, native window borders and a boxier, flatter design with colourful accents in the edit window and high contrast icons.

While there is little in the way of new feature additions, save for a word count in the edit mode, there are various improvements to code syntax support and a batch of miscellaneous bug fixes to help improve stability.
