    Excellent work!
    But the bracket matching doesn’t clearly visible when the bracket match at same line..

    Overall am really like this theme..

      It does work on 16.04
      Just save the .xml file in a location you want then go to Edit -> Preferences -> Font & Colors
      Push the plus button at the bottom and select the xml file.

      Thanks for the article.
