Собсно, с чем вас всех и поздравляю.  Скорее всего в ближайшее
время Vim в сизифе обновится ;-)

Subject: Vim version 7.0b BETA has been released

Announcing:  Vim (Vi IMproved) version 7.0b BETA

This is the first BETA release of Vim 7.  Since Vim 6.4 many new
features have been added.  To mention a few:

- Spell checking support for about 50 languages
- Intelligent completion: Omni completion
- Tab pages, each containing multiple windows
- Undo branches: never accidentally lose text again
- Vim script supports Lists and Dictionaries (similar to Python)
- Vim script profiling
- Improved Unicode support
- Highlighting of matching parens, cursor line and cursor column
- Translated manual pages for French, Italian and Russian
- Internal grep; works on all platforms, searches compressed files
- Browsing of remote directories, zip and tar archives
- Printing multi-byte text

Once you have installed Vim 7.0b BETA you can find details about the
changes since Vim 6.4 with ":help version7".  There are also a lot of
bug fixes.

We can still change option names, function arguments, etc. at this
moment.  Please check the new features for consistency and ease of use.


This is a BETA test version.  Because this is the very first release of
Vim 7 watch out for missing and misplaced files in the distribution.

The 16 bit DOS version is missing, the data doesn't fit in 64 Kbyte.
I don't know if that can still be fixed.  I will not make an Amiga or
OS/2 binary for Vim 7.  A Mac version should be available soon.

Reporting bugs

Send them to <bugs на vim.org>.  Please describe the problem precisely.
All the time spent on answering mail is subtracted from the time that is
spent on improving Vim!  Always give a reproducible example and try to
find out which settings or other things influence the appearance of the
bug.  Try starting without your own vimrc file: "vim -u NONE".  Try
different machines if possible.  See ":help bugs" in Vim.  Send me a
patch if you can!

If something needs discussing with other developers, send a message to the

Happy Vimming!
