There were some improvements to the syntax highlighting (which often
used to be the culprit in such cases). If they solved this particular

Sorry, I was unclear about this. The 0.7 version is in fact the current
version. For historic reasons, odd numbers mark development versions,
while even numbers mark stable releases. So everything in the current
0.7 version will go into the to-be-released 0.6.3 version. Just test 0.7
for now :).
