Over the last few weeks, we’ve been busy improving the user interface as well as adding features to QGIS’ style management system. The end result is a streamlined experience with better exposure to saved symbols’ management tools such as tagging and a newly-implemented favorites system.

We also took the time to update the default set of saved symbols shipped with QGIS:
The new set better serves users looking for usable predefined set of symbols. It also does a good job at reflecting the cartographic capabilities of the software.
For adventurous Linux-based OS users able to compile QGIS, these improvements are now available on the master branch. For Windows users, work is under way to make QGIS 3.0’s underlying libraries available.
