This is the regular Vim package with some additional patches to run GVim as a native Wayland application instead of running it inside Xwayland. This prevents the interface from being blurry.

You have to add GVIM_ENABLE_WAYLAND=1 to your environment to activate the Wayland mode. You can do this with the following command for example:

$ echo "GVIM_ENABLE_WAYLAND=1" >> ~/.config/environment.d/envvars.conf

The patches for Vim 8 have been created by 依云 (lilydjwg). I only merged them with Vim 9. Please see the related pull request on GitHub for more details about the features and limitations of the patches.
