I'm not entirely sure what colour scheme it is that you are/were  
using, but I would guess you were using the "saturated colours on  
black background" theme that was default in Ruby in b5. If so, you  
should select "Colorset: All Hallow's Eve" in the Theme Editor and  
you should be back on track. There are other alternatives though  
which might be better.

Please note, in b13 you can easily edit the colour schemes to the way  
you like them, so that might also be an option for you.

Hmm, going back to 1.1b5 seems  a bit drastic in my book.

However, in the recent move from b12 to b13 there may be some  
temporary colour display issues due to Allan changing various naming  
conventions, but forgot (?) to add/change those in the ColorSettings:
