It has come to our attention that the latest Cream 0.21 manual
installation (.zip) package shipped with the developer profile live.
This results in three side effects:
o The Cream Developer menu is exposed
o A few developer addons are exposed
o Vim's script encoding is forced to UTF-8
While the first two items are completely harmless, the last may pose
minor on-screen problems, especially when interacting with third-party
applications that aren't UTF-8 compliant such as in a cut/paste
If you feel comfortable understanding how this impacts your use of
Vim, there is no reason to change any aspect of Cream. (We use it this
way daily.) However we have uploaded a revised manual installation
which corrects the issue. You can also repair it yourself simply by
placing a double quote character (") before line 55 in cream.vim.
Again, many users may not notice this being an issue since some
distributions (e.g., Red Hat) default to &encoding=utf-8 in the first
place, and we consider this a beta Cream feature that might become our
standard in the near future. But we apologize if this undocumented
behavior has caused any inconveniences.
