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 . 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.
 Emacs users are allowed to start flaming now...
 Now, this may sound like I'm talking about Emacs here, but I'm actually not ;-)
I'm way too tired to write something longer than a few lines right now, but before I go to bed, here's a quote by Sean McGrath which Made My Day™:
Emacs is like a laser guided missile. It only has to be slight mis-configured to ruin your whole day.
Yes, I use vim. Yes, I always put on my asbestos underwear at night.
