It's a great plugin! Better than Sublime's in my opinion. Only problem is that it goes white when editing :( I'm using the Dark Juno and Eclipse Color Theme plugins as well if that makes a difference. Please don't abandon this project :D

The generally the idea is that if you are editing, you are not interested in the overview. Having said that, I have updated the plugin such that if you give focus back to Overview View it will refresh. Alternatively you can force the refresh by using the (default) keybinding M1+M2+M3+O for the Refresh Overview command. You can change this to something else using Preferences > Keys.
I also agree that the view going blank may be jarring. So what I am thinking is that I can simply suspend the updated when editing starts and resume it on demand like above. Stay tuned.
I am not abandoning this plugin as I myself use it :) and planning to continue to support it.

is it supposed to do that ( i'm using a dark eclipsecolorthemes.org -- railcast ) everytime i hit Enter on the editor window ?... seems like a bug.

Yes, for now. It will come back as a soon as you save or goto some other editor and come back. I did not want to slow down editing by constantly updating the Overview view as you edit your source code. The idea is that if you are editing you are not interested in the Overview at that moment. I think I can add a refresh button though.

The Overview View now refreshes when it gains focus.
The Overview View can be forced to refresh with M1+M2+M3+O keybinding for Refresh Overview command.

Actual latest version is 1.0.27.
And it changed behavior: now it not View, but tryies to integrate into perspective.
The results is NPE from time to time.
I wish this behavior would be configurable,
but the author have not updated code for several months.
