| vim.org now completely on https
SourceForge has moved to new infrastructure. Unfortunately this caused an outage for a few days. Currently it appears everything is working again.
On the positive side, SSL is now fully supported, all the pages are on https://www.vim.org. (Bram Moolenaar)
Vimfest is happening again! 22 to 24 September in Berlin. Find more information on the website. (Bram Moolenaar)
Since the Vim website hosts scripts, security is relevant. SourceForge now supports using https, but only on sourceforge.io.
That is why you now get redirected from vim.org to vim.sourceforge.io.
Let me know if something does not work. (Bram Moolenaar)
