@ychin ychin released this Sep 21, 2020

Updated to Vim 8.2.1719.

Features

Touch Bar improvements

Touch Bar now supports submenus, and allows mixed icon/text displays using tmenu. When in edit modes (e.g. insert), it will also display an emoji picker as well. See :help touchbar for documentation. #1084

Fixes

  • Window menu no longer shows duplicate "Enter Full Screen" or "Tile Window to Left of Screen" entries whenever the user switches among different MacVim windows. #566 #992
  • Fix issue where going to full screen mode when titlebar appearance is set to "hidden" would result in lost focus of the window. #1078
  • The password dialog box when using :!sudo or other commands that require password entry (macvim-askpass) will no longer focus on Finder, and will keep the focus on MacVim. #1091
  • Fix minor wrong tooltip in the "Appearance" preference pane. #1087
  • "General" preference pane will now be correctly sized when Sparkle updater is disabled (e.g. Homebrew builds). #1089
  • Misc issues were fixed by Vim upstream, e.g. vimgrep causing a crash, and odd behaviors with using Shift-O on the first line. #1082 #1083

⚠️ NOTE ⚠️: This build seems to be crashing on launch due to a library (gettext) being dynamically linked. DO NOT download this. If you have downloaded this build and it's crashing on launch, you could either get the old version, or use brew install gettext to work around it.
