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

Work on Vim 8 makes good progress
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)
