I have merged the feat/input branch into master now which, as I
mentioned a while back, means better keyboard support and also better
support for using non-English languages. In the process I noticed
that there is already support for inline IM for GTK so I sat down and
tried to make this work for MacVim as well. The code is in the
feat/inline-im branch and as far as I can tell it works pretty well --
it is far nicer than the current IM handling.
What is the difference? Well, the feat/inline-im branch delegates the
drawing of "marked text" to Vim instead of drawing it on top of the
current text. Basically, MacVim now works much like TextEdit when
using input sources such as Kotoeri.
I'll leave this code in the feat/inline-im branch for a week or so and
then I'll merge it into master and release a new snapshot (i.e. next
weekend, or the one after that at the latest). If anybody feels like
testing it before then, please pull the feat/inline-im branch and be
sure to let me know how it goes. I'd really appreciate if the CJK
users of MacVim try this out since I can only do very limited testing
myself (I can't write/read those languages).
