Call TextBuffer.onWillChange listeners only once per transaction #270

maxbrunsfeld commented Oct 25, 2017

In order to make multi-cursor editing truly fast, we need to get rid of all event listeners that get called on each individual buffer change. This PR changes the semantics of TextBuffer.onWillChange so that its listeners get called only once per transaction, before any changes. There will no longer be any argument passed.

Since this is a breaking change, I'll need to open issues on the repositories of any Atom packages that use onWillChange. Luckily, I think there are only 3 or 4.
