I think the colors in 1.0 were inherited from the dev images build by Damien Cassou. In 1.1, the colors comes from the settings of Lukas, who maintains Shout? Am I wrong?
I liked the colors in 1.0, but now I am accustomed to the current theme, which is very keen to the eye, except for two things that I change:
- distinguish instance vars/class vars from other variables: I use a brownish color for that, as I want to see at once methods accessing the state of the object
- distinguish class references: I use bold black as in the previous style, as I want to quickly catch hard dependencies in the code

To customize colors, two solutions:
1) hack SHTextStylerST80>>defaultStyleTable
2) load latest Shout and use Settings (then you should be able to save/load your style), since there is now a Settings interface
