Vim 7.4a ready for beta testing

Bram Moolenaar

Hello Vim users,


Announcing:  Vim (Vi IMproved) version 7.4a BETA


This is the first BETA release of Vim 7.4.

Please check that the distribution is OK.  I haven't done one for a long
time.  Report anything that isn't right.  That includes a crash but also
a typo in the documentation or a missing file.


The biggest additions since 7.3:
- A new, faster regular expression engine.
- More than a thousand fixes and small improvements.

Once you have installed Vim 7.4a BETA you can find details about the
changes since Vim 7.3 with:
        :help version-7.4


Gratitude
---------

If you like Vim, please consider helping poor children in the south of
Uganda: http://iccf-holland.org

Happy Vimming!

Hi Vim on Mac users,

I have uploaded a build of MacVim (snapshot 67) based on Vim 7.4a BETA:


This build is for SNOW LEOPARD (10.6) and later versions of OS X.  (I will build a version targeted specifically for 10.8 on Monday, most likely.)

Björn

I was not able to reproduce fullscreen issue here, but I could see the glitch from screenshot, although minor (parts of the window got blurry during resizing, but got back to normal when resizing stopped). Disabling core renderer in Preferences → Advanced and reopening the window made the problem go away. I have no clue on how to solve it (Björn, can you give me some pointers? [1]), I'll see what I can do.

I have tried very hard to avoid these types of display bugs, but unfortunately it is unavoidable without some form of double buffering which I have not (yet) implemented for the Core Text renderer due to speed (and memory) concerns.  My current advice is - anybody who can't live with it should disable the Core Text renderer (but the speed of the default renderer may put you off).

As for not being able to enter full screen: I do not have access to a Lion machine to try on.  But to rule out problems with Douglas' build, please try running the binary I built for 10.6.  On second thought - it does not support Lion-native full screen, so that may be somewhat pointless.  Maybe try disabling native full-screen in the prefs and see if that works.

Even on Snow Leopard build there are some glitches here, but nothing that makes MacVim unusable (it's just on resizing). But with Core Renderer enabled it's unusable for Japanese text (Japanese characters are larger, so they pile up, but with CR disabled it does proper spacing). Since I use it for Japanese just once in a while, I left it with CR enabled for day to day programming.

I didn't have the fullscreen issue, so I couldn't test that.

This is news to me.  How can I reproduce this?

Just paste (or type) any Japanese text, such as おはようございます, and it should become like the screenshot attached (wrong.png). The last character is fine, it's where the cursor is. If I navigate over the characters, each one becomes its natural size (double size) until it finally reaches the way it's in the other screenshot (right.png). Without Core Renderer, it's already like right.png.

To be sure it's not some plugin, I started with mvim -u NONE.

I downloaded snapshot 66 to test, it's fine for Japanese text, even with Core Renderer enabled.
