Version 0.0.7 didn't work correctly on OS X.
Furthermore, bug in the Java 1.3 support caused a few issues on that platform as well (which often seems to be running a 1.3 JVM, whether it leads the users to believe otherwise or not)
Our OS X testers have ensured that release will, in fact, build and run on your OS X box.
Most important changes are:
* a build fix for OS X. (JVM opts mis-configured for OS X)
* speedups in the Java code.
* fixes in the KeyEvent listener.
* a bug in background color changing.
* color allocation
* workaround for WM closing of vim4j causing a system hang.... read more
A major bugfix release, including several portability patches for Linux, Solaris and Mac OS X (Darwin) and the new support for the 1.3 JDK, which is brand spanking new and apparently a bit quirky. 1.4 JDK support seems to still be unaffected.
vim4j now targets: Linux, Solaris, Windows, Mac OS X (Darwin)
vim4j now supports: 1.3 and 1.4 JDK
The focus of the remaining 0.0.x series will be solely for bug fixes. The next major release is 0.1.0.
The most recently posted snapshot (20041007) combined with the recently submitted patch (20041007-solaris) results in a vim4j tree that succesfully builds and runs on Solaris! This version should also build and run on both Linux and Macintosh OS X (Darwin). You will likely still want to apply the above patch, since there is at least one non-Solaris fix in there. I am still working on the Windows build.... read more
We have made progress on the vim4j Mac OS X port.
We need Mac OS X beta testers for the first milestone build of Vim4J! Additional Windows beta testers wouldn't hurt either! Lets get this thing to build on these two platforms. I can interactively help via AIM: ankhcraft, Yahoo: walltndr, or IRC. I can be contacted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org

Added system clipboard functionality. Almost all (95%) of Vim's GUI subsystem functionality is now supported. Changed configure script so it properly enables Java as the default GUI.
This release adds a bunch of bug fixes, improved rendering and efficiency, improved cursor rendering, support for Mac OS X builds (hopefully), and other minor improvements.
Added file browsing support, improved application stability, fixed a few bugs, and added mouse movement and mouse clicks support to the GUI subsystem. Also, changed the window title to "Vim4J".
