[2020-02-25]  ChangeGlobally : Change {motion} text and repeat the substitution.
(2.01) - Support {target-motion} of |gv| in <Leader>gc and <Leader>gx to replace in the last selection. (Previously, the {source-motion} clobbered the user-established visual selection.) - The custom operators don't clobber the previous visual selection any longer. - BUG: Regression: gcc and gxx broken by forgotten adaptation of regexp magicness. - Ingo Karkat
[2020-02-25]  borlandp.vim : a Vim colorscheme that looks like good old Borland IDEs.
(20200224) Added dark background options, default is still the classic blue. let g:borlandp_bg = "dark_blue" let g:borlandp_bg = "dark_gray" let g:borlandp_bg = "black" - Caglar Toklu
[2020-02-24]  MessageRecall : Browse and re-insert previous (commit, status) messages.

[2020-02-24]  VcsMessageRecall : Browse and re-insert previous VCS commit messages.
(1.05) - ENH: Message stores from working copies that are located next to the current one are configured (in |b:MessageRecall_ConfiguredMessageStores|) automatically for easy access via :MessageStore {dir}. *** You need to update to ingo-library (vimscript #4433) version 1.038! *** - Ingo Karkat
