Description Alfred Hall 2013-03-04 06:10:05 UTC
This issue summarises couple of potential issues I've found with the new status bar. These issues didn't exist in the 3.x branch of MonoDevelop.

 * Vi mode is now using the new status bar and entering anything into it is quite laggy. For example doing :w or / for searching appears couple of seconds after typing it.
 * Building status goes into the status bar. It mentions what csproj's are being built. When compiling it puts the CPU usage quite high up. xbuild on the other hand doesn't do it and also builds faster. MD 3.x branch behaved in similar fashion as xbuild and was a lot quicker.

The solution I'm building contains 4 dll's and 6 console projects and I'm running on OSX 10.8 (mountain lion). Tried this on a MBP 15 inch and MBP 17 inch.

@Jason: I fixed the vi mode - I don't think that the new status area is the place to display the vi stuff.

But the speed problem remains.

We've rewritten the status bar ever since and we now use xbuild/msbuild to build projects. Marking bug as fixed.
