Awesome work!
If I can make a suggestion, the intense red used for the 'colorcolumn' is the only thing that annoys me, to the point that I'm looking for a way to change it.. :P

Also, as someone suggested, a small option to disable italics for those fonts that don't do so good in that mode would be great.

Thanks for the theme!

Love it, especially great for my not-so-young glossy 2nd laptop screen

I figured it out, add the following to the line in mustang.vim that starts with "hi Cursorline"

term=none cterm=none

Wow, this is quite the theme.
I have a little problem though: in Gvim, I have the current line highlighted via "set cul" in .vimrc. However, in terminal vim, this highlights the current line and underlines the whole line. How would I only get it to highlight the current line?

Nice color scheme! Using it!

May I ask the name of the GTK theme/engine you're using? I used this theme a lot a few years ago. I haven't used gnome for quite a long time and forgot the name of this theme. I liked it so much...

Thank you very much!

Really nice. I would only disable "italic" in code highlighting, it doesn't always display correctly (at least on Windows).

Nice color scheme! Too early to tell if it will be my default but it's a welcome change from my previous scheme.

one of my favorite dark colorschemes. you should upload it to vim.org so more people can enjoy it.

I just stumbled upon this, and I'm always looking for something to try and break my Zenburn addiction. Thanks!

hcalves: What do you mean with lowercase? I tried to lowercase my the name "Mustang" to "mustang" but I still get that error.

This is my .vimrc:

set t_Co=256
colorscheme Mustang
syntax enable
filetype indent on
set number
set foldmethod=syntax
set foldlevelstart=99

Any ideas?

Nevermind, I renamed "Mustang.vim" to "mustang.vim" and I don't get that error anymore.

This colorscheme is awesome, but I had to change one line otherwise I would be getting an error in VIM 7.3.

This was the line I had to change:

let colors_name = "Mustang" (line 13)

I had to capitalize "mustang" to "Mustang".

Otherwise I would get this error:

[diego@myhost ~]$ vim
Error detected while processing /usr/share/vim/vim73/syntax/synload.vim:
line 19:
E185: Cannot find color scheme mustang
Press ENTER or type command to continue

Or you use lowercase in your .vimrc ;)
