Vim - the ubiquitous text editor

Vim is a highly configurable text editor built to make creating and changing any kind of text very efficient. It is included as "vi" with most UNIX systems and with Apple OS X.

Vim is rock stable and is continuously being developed to become even better. Among its features are:
  • persistent, multi-level undo tree
  • extensive plugin system
  • support for hundreds of programming languages and file formats
  • powerful search and replace
  • integrates with many tools

  News  Vim 7.4.2275 is the current version 

Vim 8.0 is getting close

[2016-08-16] Work on Vim 8.0 is coming close to an end. I hope version 8.0 can be released in about two weeks. This is a last chance to modify new features in a way that is not backwards compatible. Once 8.0 is out we can't make changes that would break plugins. An overview of new features can be found on GitHub. A version with hyperlinks (but a day older) is on appspot. If you have remarks please discuss them on the vim-dev maillist. (Bram Moolenaar)

Work on Vim 8 makes good progress

[2016-07-03] The past months many new features have been included, such as asynchronous communication, job control, timers and much more. The number of reported problems is steadily going down. This is an indication the quality is getting to an adequate level. There are still a few pieces to get in place and patches to include. (Bram Moolenaar)

Vim on Slant

[2016-06-03] Quite a few people vote for questions like "What are the best resources for learning vim?" and "What are the best VIM color-schemes?". This can be found on Slant: http://www.slant.co/search?query=vim. Judging by the answer to "What are the best programming text editors?" this site can't be bad :-). (Bram Moolenaar)
