After a 2 year wait Vim 7.3 has finally arrived, It includes an awful lot of bug fixes and a few new features, and it’s better than ever before.
This is a minor release of Vim. It consists of Vim 7.2 plus all patches, updated runtime files and some additions. It has been two years since the 7.2 release, thus it’s not that “minor”. But not ”major” either. Something in between.
The most notable additions since 7.2:
- Persistent undo and undo for reload
- Blowfish encryption, encryption of the swap file
- Conceal text
- Lua interface
- Python 3 interface
