      Ballon eval has been supported for several years now, so it sounds
      like a problem with the plugin or your local settings. There is an
      example under ":h 'bexpr" that lets you see if ballon eval is working
      as expected:

      function! MyBalloonExpr()
      return 'Cursor is at line ' . v:beval_lnum .
      \', column ' . v:beval_col .
      \ ' of file ' . bufname(v:beval_bufnr) .
      \ ' on word "' . v:beval_text . '"'
      set bexpr=MyBalloonExpr()
      set ballooneval

      Save that to a text file (e.g. "beval.vim") and source it (":so
      beval.vim") -- this should cause a balloon to pop up showing the word
      under the cursor. It works as expected for me.
