Project Database Problems
The server is currently experiencing sporadic problems with the
project database and web server. This means login, news and scripts
are currently unavailable.
This is usually solved within a short time.
Thank you for your patience.
Another way to get to the scripts is through git on
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

RIP Bram Moolenaar
The Vim project is deeply shocked and saddened by the sudden passing of Bram.
We certainly will miss him, his guidance and his humour.
The Vim project wouldn't exist without his ongoing passion to lead and
develop Vim and the community for more than 30 years.
Our deepest condolences to all his family and may they have enough strengths
to come through these saddened times. We lost a great guy way too early, who should have had
the chance to enjoy and live for at least several more years!
In addition he was well-known for collecting donations for the ICCF foundation and
helping many children in Uganda. And despite the saddened news, during the
last 7 days an incredible amount of EURO 60,000 was donated. That is so
awesome. Thank you all contributors!
An incredible amount of people have been giving respect and saying
goodby at here and
you'll find obituary articles and links
It is in Brams interest to continue the Vim project even
if development now will slow down, but hopefully the community is being
able to step up and continue the work in the next years. (Christian Brabandt)
new :defer command
Cleaning up after creating a file or directory can easily be forgotten.
To make it easier the :defer command has been added.
It works like it does in the Go language.
Also, you can add a flag to writefile() and mkdir() to have them defer a delete() call.
This is especially useful in tests, where temp files need to be cleaned up.
Read about it in the help file. (Bram Moolenaar)
Virtual text has been implemented
The past weeks a new feature has been added, that allows for displaying text in between the buffer text.
Since this text does not exist in the file this is often called "virtual text".
The virtual text can appear inside the line, after the line and below the line.
You can read about it in the help. (Bram Moolenaar)
