Vim Mac fans:
You can now get pre-compiled Vim.app for OS X 10.2, 10.3, and 10.4
. Thanks to Peter
Cucka and Jonathan Cooley for compiling two of the binaries.
I will spend some time updating macvim.org today.
I am looking for a new host for macvim.org . I would prefer a site
that provides SSH access and PHP and allows me to set up restricted FTP
accounts. I could make do with much less, such as an HTTP or FTP server
for the files, with the web pages stored somewhere else. The site uses
a lot of bandwidth: in April and so far in May, the average load has
been over 900 MB per day. Any volunteers?
Some new FAQs:
Q: At startup, I get error messages about menus that do not exist. What
should I do?
A: Start vim and do
Read the comments there.
Q: My fonts are not displayed properly. How can I fix it?
A: Unfortunately, there is no easy answer. There is a new binary option,
'macasui'. When it is set (the default) certain Unicode fonts should be
displayed better than in vim 6.4. When it is reset, font rendering is
mostly the same as in vim 6.4. It may help to try different fonts by
setting 'guifont'. Other options that may matter include 'encoding',
'termencoding', 'fileencoding', and 'antialias'. Several users report
:set nomacatsui antialias termencoding=macroman gfn=Monaco:h13
works well for them.
