+### Critical Changes
-* [global] Modified red from L\*a\*b lightness value 45 to 50 to bring it in
+These changes may require you to change your configuration.
+* **GLOBAL : IMPROVEMENT : New red accent color value**
+ Modified red from L\*a\*b lightness value 45 to 50 to bring it in
line with the other accent colors and address bleed into dark background on
some displays, as well as reducing shift of red against base03 when viewed
with glasses (chromatic aberration). All instances of the colorscheme and
- palettes updated to new red.
+ palettes updated to new red and avalailable for use/import without further
+ modification. Forks and ports should pull new changes and/or update ported
+ red value accordingly. The new red:
+ red #dc322f
+* **VIM : IMPROVEMENT : New Toggle Background Plugin**
+ Added new Toggle Background plugin. Will load automatically and show up as
+ a menu item in the `Window` menu in gui vim. Automatically maps to <F5> if
+ available (won't clobber that mapping if you're using it). Also available
+ as a command `:ToggleBG`. To manually map to something other than <F5>:
+ nmap <unique> <F5> <Plug>ToggleBackground
+ imap <unique> <F5> <Plug>ToggleBackground
+ vmap <unique> <F5> <Plug>ToggleBackground
+ Note that it is important to *not* use the noremap map variants. The plugin
+ uses noremap internally. You may run `:help togglebg` for more information.
+* **VIM : CHANGE : Default mode now 16 color**
+ Default terminal mode is now ***16 colors***. Most of the users of terminal
+ mode seem comfortabel and capable changing terminal colors. This is the
+ preferred method of implementing Solarized in Terminal mode. If you wish to
+ instead use the degraded 256 color palette, you may do so with the
+ following line in your .vimrc:
+ let g:solarized_termcolors=256
+ You no longer need to specify "let g:solarized_termcolors=16" as it is now
+ the default; leaving it in your .vimrc won't hurt anything, however.
+### Non Critical Changes
+These changes should not impact your usage of the Solarized.
* [palettes] Changed default OS X color picker palatte swatches to tagged
colors (sRGB) and included alternate palette with untagged color swatches
for advanced users (v1.0.0beta1 had untagged as default).
+* **VIM : BUGFIX : Better display in, other emulators**
+ and other common terminal emulators that report 8 color mode
+ had display issues due to order of synt highlighting definitions and color
+ values specified. These have been conformed and reordered in such a way
+ that there is a more graceful degrading of the Solarized color palette on
+ 8 color terminals. Infact, the experience should be almost identical to gui
+ other than lack of bold typeface.
+* **VIM : BUGFIX : Better distinction between status bar and split windows**
+ Status bar was previously too similar to the cursor line and window splits.
+ This has now been changed significantly to improve the clarity of what is
+ status, cursor line and window separator.
+* [vim] Refactored solarized.vim to eliminate simultaneous definition of gui
+ and cterm values.
* [vim] Removed default italicized font in terminal mode in the Solarized Vim
colorscheme (many terminal emulators display Vim italics as reversed type).
Italics still used in GUI mode by default and can still be turned off in
