I have not been able to upload files until today. Sorry for the delay.
It appears to work OK now. Let me know if you have persistent problems.

Is Dany's version the official version now? Just wondering.

Axel Kielhorn has been away from his computer for a while :( . He
left before vim 5.6 was released. At some point, Dany St. Amant posted
a binary for vim-mac 5.6 but never announced it. I noticed it and
pointed it out to Bram. He was having trouble uploading to the new
ftp.vim.org; when that got resolved, he posted the binaries and
When I got my copy, it was packaged with a rather non-standard
vimrc file. Has this survived to the version on ftp.vim.org?

I think so. I saw Bram's posting and downloaded it, then realized that
it was Dany's January build. But the non-standard vimrc file is part of
the MacOS distribution. All the command-key map bindings were commented
out; I uncommented most of them without problems, but there are two that
I've left out because they don't work right with cut-and-paste commands.
Now if only the cursor could blink in MacOS...
