I believe the Colorname Fuschia in the Color structure is misspelled, should read Fuchsia to maintain compatibility with Xaml and web colors, and color names in general.

I have checked this issue and I am also getting the same behavior.

I have checked the definition of "Color" structor and observed that the color "Fuchsia" is misspelled but the RGB color code is correct.

Color Name      Color Code
Fuchsia             255, 0, 255

The Intellisense description is also wrong, spelling "Fushia" instead of "Fuchsia" (correct) or "Fuschia" (other typo):
The Fushia color.

Not pink, but close. Fushia is also known as magenta, and has the #ff00ff rgb value.

Was fixed in 1.3.0 final.
