Download of the day: Vim Text Editor 7.2

Posted on in Categories Download of the day, FreeBSD, GNU/Open source, Linux, RedHat/Fedora Linux, UNIX, Windows, windows vista last updated August 9, 2008

Vim was created as an extended version of the vi editor with many additional features designed to be helpful in editing program source code.

After fifteen months of work: a brand new Vim release! This is a stable version. There are many bug fixes and updated runtime files. The only new feature worth mentioning is support for floating point. Upgrading from a previous version is highly recommended: a few crashing bugs and several security issues were fixed. For the details see the announcement. Or go directly to the download page.
