Dev Build 2084

Dev Build 2084

Postby jps on Wed Jul 20, 2011 2:13 pm

Dev Build 2084 is out now.

The first change you'll see is a blinking caret. This in configurable via the caret_style setting, which accepts these values:

* smooth: the default, it smoothly blinks in and out
* blink: a blinking caret
* wide: the caret from previous versions
* solid: a 1px wide, non-blinking caret

The blinking speed, for the smooth and blink styles, is picked up from OS settings. I'm not sure what the default style should be, but I've got a feeling it should likely be 'blink' rather than 'smooth', or perhaps just 'wide', for no change - feedback is welcome.

The highlight_line setting has also been disabled by default now, but feel free to re-enable it if you prefer.

There's also a new global setting, binary_file_patterns, used to identify binary files - any files matching this won't be shown in Goto Anything or Find in Files. This allows files to be shown in open folders on the side bar, but not pollute the Goto Anything list.

There have been a few changes to theming now, too. Buttons with text now make use of the standard label control, and so will pick up any styling on the label_control class. It's also possible to change the font used for most of the interface, but not everywhere yet (Goto Anything and the auto complete window fonts aren't yet themeable).

Can we have, say, ["smooth", "wide"] for the caret, please? :)

There is a hidden setting, "wide_caret", you can enable to get a wide cursor with blink and smooth

Great! Thanks.
IMO wide blinking should be default.

Panel heights are stored in the session

Is it something related to my query about changing build output panel height (http://www.sublimetext.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2466&start=0) ?
If it's the case, it's doesn't work, the height of the "output.exec" panel is not stored.
But it work for the console panel which is great, Thanks.

The first change you'll see is a blinking caret

My first though was "Oh nice".
My second was "It's very narrow".
I will try with and without the wide_caret setting and see.
I've a strange feeling about it... It look "more white than white" :?:
But definitely a keeper by default.

There's another hidden setting btw: "caret_blink_interval", which is the time in seconds to complete a blink cycle. A value of 0 (the default) means use the OS settings.

I personally don't think I will like have blinking carets. With a single caret it would be great, but when there is more than one caret I think it will end up being overkill and distracting/annoying. But I'll try it anyway.

No problems on my end. Been using it since this morning. Mac OS Snow Leopard here.
