I tested on a Mac Mini. What amount of lag are you experiencing? Brian can
you comment? I know in IRC you were mentioning some slowness.

In your theme's view.lua file you might want to uncomment the

--buffer.buffered_draw = false
--buffer.two_phase_draw = false

lines and see if that boosts your speed.

The next version of Scintilla (the editing component used by Textadept)
will support Cairo as the drawing tool rather than GDK. I don't know if
this means drawing will be faster, but I would guess so.
