Vim Mac fans:
There are some new patches to try out at
1. antitag.diff (Peter Cucka)
Peter Cucka's antialias patch was made official (6.2.210) but the
official patch does not change the tags file. If you are already
applying custom patches, then this may be more convenient than running
2. MouseWheel.diff (Eckehard Berns)
This enables a scroll wheel. In my (limited) testing, it works like a
3. TransBack.diff (Eckehard Berns)
This is an alternative to Muraoka Taro's transparency.diff . Only the
background of the window, not the text nor the title bar, becomes
transparent when the new 'transparency' option is set less than 255.
There is no danger of having the window totally disappear.
Drawbacks: Scrolling in the command-line area is slow. (Try :version .)
There are some redrawing problems when the main window is resized.
Peter Cucka and Ken Scott:
Can you compile new versions with the latest official patches and
at least the first two of these? It is up to you which version of
transparency you use.
P.S. Hardware update: I verified (with Apple Hardware Test) that my
RAM was defective, so I replaced it. Unfortunately, my hard drive has
been corrupted. It looks like I will have to reformat and reinstall...
