VIM 8.0 is released

After more than ten years there is a major Vim release. (Bram Moolenaar)

New features in VIM 8.0:

  • Asynchronous I/O support, channels
  • Jobs
  • Timers
  • Partials
  • Lambda and Closure
  • Packages
  • New style tests
  • Window IDs
  • DirectX support
  • GTK+ 3 support
  • and more.

The difference between VIM and VI (for VIM version 8.0) you can find here.

You can also download a new version of VIM on the official VIM site.

I just updated my VIM, but I didn’t have time to check all the new features. So, in the nearest future I’ll write the overview of the most interesting ones.
