woooow - so fast!

one comment: jon, you added 'bolding' the typed string where it appear on the filter view, this is a good idea. but... i don't know if it only me, but something is unclear to read there... another issue with it, is when using mono spaced font for that menu (as i did), bolding parts of it make it a mess (mono spaced support of bold is not too good).

but overall the release is superb!

edit: loved the abbreviations idea

vim: when you say unclear, do you mean hard to read, or it's hard to tell the bolded text apart from the plain text? If it's the former, a screenshot would help me see what's going on.

@jon here is a screen shot when using Bitstream Vera Sans Mono 10 font, maybe highlighting and not bolding can avoid this. but, anyway i can manage with the default Tahoma font, so this is no bigi.

@sublimator, i'll try the font u suggested

one more comment regarding the way you filter, the way it is done now, if i put few strings in the filter line, each 'stills' the characters it matched, so for example look at the screen shot, if i type 'space' followed by wdma it won't match nothing, because the 'W' stole this word already. it seems more appropriate if the filter terms could overlap. i hope i am clear enough.

All these new changes have left me giddy and breathless. Great work!

My only wish now regarding the new project feature and interface:

A way of seeing in the interface which project you are currently using, and perhaps automatically switching between them based on the path of the file you have open.

I usually work on three or four projects at a time and it's a pain to open a new project if I only need to work on a few files in that particular project. Or maybe I'm missing something? Is there a way of streamlining this already?

i also noticed that on the project filter the order of space-separated-terms is important. for example, if the wished file is FooBar, and there are many Bar files, the first term poped to my head was Bar, but i get a big list, so i type space followed by Foo... it doesn't work. i find it annoying.

Due to popular demand, space separated terms are now order independent, and may overlap, in 20090219.

otaku888: There's no easy way to switch between projects atm, but if you're keen, you can make a plugin that shows your projects in a quick panel, passing the results to the openProject command.

Unfortunately my skills are a bit lacking in that respect. But thanks for the tip, and it is of course a blessing to have any project support at all. It's making the task of hunting down the right files a lot quicker.
