In the past few weeks, I’ve been addressing some long-standing ViEmu issues: minor glitches, compatibility with other 3rd party add-ins in certain circumstances, simple new features, etc… Rather than constrain this to the exposure of a minor revision (very small), I decided to add some interesting new feature and release version 2.2. I have already finished ViEmu/VS 2.2 and a ViEmu/SQL 2.2 will follow shortly. I’ve been testing it myself for a few days, and also sent it out privately to a few other people, and before announcing it officially to the whole mailing list, I thought I’d offer it from the blog and the ViEmu forums for a few more days to be sure everything’s fine.
Here is the link to download it:
You don’t need to uninstall any previous installation, this installer will automatically upgrade it. By the way, I have also revamped my internal installer-build-system, and now all minor revisions will also feature automatic upgrades. Manual uninstalls are a thing of the past now!
The main new feature in 2.2 is vim-7-style i’/a’/i”/a” text-object motions, which allow fast access to single- and double-quote strings. This was an oft-requested feature, so hopefully it will be a welcome addition to ViEmu.
While this is being tested, I plan to build a ViEmu/SQL 2.2, and address a few outstanding ViEmu/Word&Outlook issues. Probably there will also be a ViEmu/W&O 1.x release soon, too, incorporating the most recent improvements.
As always, but more so with this release, I will be grateful for any feedback you can offer.
