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.
So, what’s in 0.6.1?
- integrated the
yy/yw/yb/yccommands from Andrew Koyfman
1G, nG, G, ggcommands
- 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.
