Features, Office "This is a minor release of Vim. It consists of Vim 7.2 plus all patches, updated runtime files and some more, see below. It has been two years since the 7.2 release, thus it's not that 'minor'. But not 'major' either. Something in between, don't know how to call that."

for a few of us that still use the old style editors, Vim releases, while infrequent, are nice.

Where I work, Vim is staple, even on Windows. When you work in a cross-platform environment, it's nice to have a text editor that respects line terminators. I also use regex search/replace a lot.

Why not invent a better word, a compound word made from easy-to-understand parts? Like "middletimy"? ;)

Is there any good plugin for html/javascript? I had problems with the built in ones when both where mixed into the same file.

It means it has hooks so you can script vim using python 3 and lua. It already has hooks for perl, ruby, and python2, adding python 3 and lua is a nice move.

VIm is very good software

I am using VIm every day, on my work, at home, on every computer I deal with, under GNU/Linux and MacOS X. I used it on AmigaOS (its original platform) and Solaris (on my previous employment). If sometimes forced to use Windows, I install Cygwin and use VIm instead of any other text editor. And the most important plugin for me is "bash-support.vim". It's the second most frequent software I use (after Firefox) and it's been so for years.

Infrequent releases? Perhaps more a reflection of how difficult it is to improve on near perfection! Flirted with, and tried other things, but I always come back "home" after mere hours, there is nothing to match Vim in my book. Long may it continue.

vim is a staple. One of the few programs that really ought to be installed on every device -- every OS, every architecture, everywhere, you need vim.

The whole emacs vs vim debate never dies, but it is easily settled for me: vim.
