      After toying MacVim (http://code.google.com/macvim) around for a
      while, I found it's great and even stable enough for my daily work.
      bjorn, really appreciate for the effort.

      I used the latest MacVim together with TVO (a great vim outliner
      http://bike-nomad.com/vim/vimoutliner.html), but somehow the icons of
      TVO cannot be displayed. Is this due to the resolution or the format
      of the icons is not compatible?

      BTW, the name MacVim is really confusing with the other MacVim (http://
      macvim.org/). Can we go for a more OS X name, such as iVim, iGVim,
      VimX, GVimX, or just "GVim" if MacVim is to become "official". :)

        I assume you are talking about the toolbar icons? On the Mac they
        need to be either png or tiff (maybe others too, but those two are the
        ones I know that work) and they should be 32x32 (or 24x24) in size.
        Anything else will probably not work. However, I have never tested
        having "external" toolbar icons (i.e. not in the app bundle)...it
        should work, but maybe there is some problem there. What format are
        the icons in TVO?

        As far as I am concerned it is all Vim; at the moment the program I
        maintain is called MacVim.app to differentiate it from Vim.app (which
        is what the Carbon, or possibly vim-cocoa app bundle is called). The
        site macvim.org has nothing to do with a program called "MacVim" so as
        far as I am concerned I don't see any problems. Also, I have tried
        asking Benji to put MacVim.app on macvim.org, but he's not responding
        to email (I've also noticed that the site itself hasn't been updated
        since March).

        If MacVim.app makes it into the Vim source code then I guess we can
        start calling it Vim instead. If that doesn't happen, then maybe it
        would be time to try to come up with another name.

          but still an exclamation mark showed up.

              Could you do me a favour and open up Console
              (/Applications/Utilities/Console) and email me the error messages that
              are logged when the toolbar icons cannot be found?

              There should be messages like:

                  Thanks a lot...I see now that the full path name isn't used which is
                  why the icon loading fails (MacVim only looks for relative paths
                  inside the app bundle). I will try to fix this soon.
