viWord 0.6.1

Thursday, February 24th, 2005

It’s been a while since the last release (0.5), and viWord has been working fine for me, But I’ve not been using the 0.5 that you guys are 😉

I’ve been using 0.6.1 for quite some time, and beta-testing it to make sure that it’s been running fine for me for a few months before releasing it for public consumption. That said, there is still no warranty whatsoever that the software would behave properly.

Download the zip file here.

So, what’s in 0.6.1?

  • integrated the yy/yw/yb/yc commands from Andrew Koyfman
  • 1G, nG, G, gg commands
  • workaround for Word as the e-mail editor under Outlook 2003. In that mode, you can’t type anything into the To/Cc/Bcc/Subject fields. That is because Word is intercepting the keystrokes that are meant for the message header fields and sending it to viWord. I haven’t been able to find any way to properly relay those keystrokes back to the header fields, so the workaround that Andrew and I came up with is: when the caret is in the header fields, unbind each key temporarily and sending it back to the window for processing, then binding the key again. This incurs a negligible performance penalty only when the cursor is in the header fields; normal editing should be unaffected.
