[vim-mac] Re: MAC OS X - start on March 24th
>Or are you thinking of a Carbon version of MacVim?FYI, the quick carbon port I did many months ago still works fine
under the release candidate of OS X. There are a couple important
things to do however (aside from merging the source code back in with
- support the quit apple event. Then the user will be able to quit
from the application menu.
- somehow register the app with OS X to say that it can open text
files. For some odd reason, you can't drag and drop a text file over
macvim in OS X unless its classic creator/type codes match macvim.
This is also annoying because it means that I can't tell the finder
to automatically open all my project builder text files in macvim.
- support live scrolling/window resizing (not as important as the 1st 2).
Unfortunately this will be a very buzy/stressful weekend for me and I
can't look into these issues further. I currently work around things
in os x by either opening files manually through the open dialog or
switching between xfree68 with the unix version of vim

It told me that the MPW Version of Vim 6.0w has:
2 Functions supported with modifications
3 Functions supported but not recommended
18 Unsupported API
2 Under Evaluation (Whatever that means)
That doesn't look bad, compared to
8 / 24 / 41 / 0
for Vim 5.7 with Code Warrior.
I have added all the suggestions from Carbon Dater to gui_mac.c and will
send a diff to Bram. I hope they will be in 6.0z.

Very cool! If I haven't mentioned it enough, thanks for all the work
you've put into this, Axel!
