iTerm2 3.1.beta6 feels jumpy vs 3.0.15 (with comparison video)
- iTerm2 version:
3.1.beta6 and 3.0.15
- OS version:
- What happened:
3.1.beta6 (other betas too) have felt jumpy. I made recordings comparing the versions of just leaving "enter" pressed at my prompt, slowed down to 4%.
In 3.1.beta6, notice that we go to next line and wait, before the prompt is drawn. And sometimes, only half of the next prompt is drawn before the other half comes in (example @ 13s). In 3.0.15, it's completely smooth. So smooth, that I had to add additional text in the video to act as a reference point, otherwise, you couldn't tell it was moving.
I've emphasized "feels" because I've seen threads of improved latency performance, and maybe the jumpiness is in fact the result of faster drawing.
I know there's not much to go on this issue, but just wanted to bring it up since the videos confirm that there is at least a difference between 3.1.beta6 and 3.0.15.
