New Features
Menu Integration

Ultimate Colorscheme Utility is now working on better integration into GVim. There is now a 'Favorites' menu that enables all the functionality of the plugin at the push of a button.
Excluded Filetypes

Now you can specify which filetypes Ultimate Colorscheme Utility can ignore for even more customizability.

Ultimate Colorscheme Utility offers several features for customizing your colorscheme preferences.
- Allows for easy browsing of all installed colorschemes,
  see the awesome archive at https://github.com/flazz/vim-colorschemes for a ton of colorschemes.
- Allows saving favorite colorschemes for all vim, or for specific filetypes.
- Enables automatic switching of colorschemes when switching fietype buffers so that a favorite scheme is always on.
- NEW: Allows for the saving of favorite fonts when using GVim.
