*** Cream (for Vim) Version 0.36beta2 Released ***
The Cream (for Vim) project (http://cream.sourceforge.net) has
released the latest version of an easy-to-use configuration for Vim.
Cream configures the famous and free Vim text editor so that it is
simple to use for those of us familiar with Apple or Windows platform
software. Through intuitive menus, keyboard shortcuts, and extensive
editing functions, Cream makes Vim approachable for new users and adds
powerful features for experienced users on both Windows and Linux.
This major release features improved backwards compatibility with
older versions of Vim (6.1), new visual indicators of Settings and
Preferences menu items, improved startup speed, and a simpler find
next occurrence of a selected word (F3 key). Other updates include use
of the new Vim 7 spell check and current line highlighting when used
with that version, improved readability of the insert character list,
and a fixed middle mouse pasting behavior.
NEW FEATURES, CHANGES AND IMPROVEMENTS
o Improved Cream backwards compatibility with much older Vim versions
(back to 2002 version 6.1).
o Added a visual indicator to all applicable Settings and Preference
o Improved startup speed.
o Improved behavior of find under the cursor with a selection (F3).
Cream now goes to the next occurrence and selects it.
ADVANCED FEATURES, CHANGES AND IMPROVEMENTS
o Changed spell check indication to use new system for Vim 7 beta
o Changed current line highlighting system to use built-in system for
Vim 7 beta users.
o Improved readibility of insert character list.
o Fixed middle mouse button pasting behavior where a trailing "y" was
added when starting with a selection, and where the selection was
being cut instead of preserved.
