[ANN] VimMate 0.6.2

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Guillaume Benny, Dec 21, 2006.

  1. Hi,

    A new version of VimMate is now available: Version 0.6.2.

    VimMate is a graphical add-on to Vim with IDE-like features: it does more
    than the plain Vim while still being lightweight. Even with the additional
    features, it stays out of the way for it's main task: editing files with
    Vim. VimMate adds functionality to Vim by embedding Vim GTK GUI (gVim)
    within VimMate.

    Changes in version 0.6.2:

    - # 7028: It's now possible to install VimMate using the provided setup.rb
    or with Ruby Gems.

    - Two layouts for the interface are now available.

    - # 6761: A new way of opening files is now available. A new list of files
    allows you to type only a part of a file name to see the possible files
    filtered instantly.

    - Long file names in the file list are now shortened.

    - Files or directories can now be excluded on the command line.

    See http://vimmate.rubyforge.org/ for more information.

    Comments will be greatly appreciated. If you find any bugs or if you have
    suggestions, please use the tracker on Rubyforge:

    Very nice! Thanks for making VimMate. It has the correct balance of the
    most useful IDE features and straight Vim editing. :)

    The only thing I would ask is to make it start-up faster. Perhaps this
    can be achieved by gathering a list of entries in the current directory
    during start-up, and then:

    1. gather their descendants on-demand:
    - when you browse a directory in the file-system browser
    - when you type some text in the file-system filter

    or

    2. run a background thread (immediately after start-up) to gathers all
    descendants of the current directory.

    Anyway, keep up the good work!
