Vim 7 released!

A new major version of our favorite text editor vim [1] has been released!

Yes, that's that awesome text-mode editor your geeky friends keep telling you about, the one that many people use since many years and still haven't explored more than 20% of its features [2]. I'm well aware that if you're a vim user you probably have already heard about it, but I'm blogging the news here one more time, just in case ;-)

I think the most interesting new features for me will be tabs, omni-completion, and "browsing remote directories, zip and tar archives" from within vim (no need to fire up mc anymore). A more complete list of new features is available in the release announcement.

[2] Now, this may sound like I'm talking about Emacs here, but I'm actually not ;-)
