Hi Mac users,
I just noticed that XQuartz has updated apple's X11 server to 184.108.40.206
(the one apple ships with Leopard is 2.3.1 I believe) . It seems to
fix a number of weird behaviors I've noticed with Wing, such as:
tooltips appear when wing is in background
weird issues with dialogs popping up at inopportune times when using
the external tools layout
problems with copy/paste when using a clipboard manager such as Jumpcut
fix occasional "stuck keys" when switching between apps
All in all, it seems like a vast improvement. However, there's one
change that seems to have dramatically changed the way that Wing
displays. From the release notes:
"Default dpi reported is now 96 instead of 75"
When you first load wing in 220.127.116.11 the fonts will all appear HUGE.
To switch back, run the following in Terminal (from the FAQ):
defaults write org.x.X11 dpi -int 75
PS. Wingware folks, I'm not sure what motivated the Quartz guys to
make this change, but you might want to consider updating your
defaults under 2.3.2 or later to compensate, because the app looks
absolutely terrible at the new resolution.
