new tab bar style in 8.0 (build 110)

Brad Grant
Is there anyway to get back to the old style of the tab bar as it was in version 7?  I know the bar uses the OS/X style, but that doesn't mean it's good.  The new wide format is too hard to use on a large 31" monitor.  Would be nice to have a preference setting for using the Yosemite-style or the new wide style.  For me, it's just much faster and easier to see when all tabs are on the left-hand side and sized to the content.

You might want to try "text-style" tabs: for that, ":set guioptions-=e" (without the quotes) then define the 'tabline' option (see :help setting-tabline). 'guitablabel' is not used in that case.

I use this, but of course it is not necessarily to everybody's taste. Try it, then if you don't like it you can still go back to GUI-style tabs, defined (IIUC) by the 'guitablabel' option (q.v.) and by the e flag being on in 'guioptions'.

Best regards,
Tony.
