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).
