Topic: Quitted Vim 8.0

Unexpectedly pleasant news - quitted Vim 8.0. For normal users, it appears, the given release transits not noted at least at first. But here for writers of plug-ins explicitly : in Vim 8 there was an asynchronous input/output so soon there will be a compilation in a background and more transparent autocompletion

Yes, the built in language, of course, strange enough, but language too slightly finished, now in it there are lambdas and closings. Besides, Vim pretty well supports development of logic of plug-ins on Python, Ruby and, like as, Lua. If to compare to main "competitor" for the person not familiar with LISP family the VIM-script will be differently easier.

I heard that extensions for Vim to develop much more difficult than for "the main competitor" with what it is is specific  I do not know - as Vim I know only superficially - can with language, and can with its integration into a kernel. OFFTOPIC: here the Author: ksandro Date: 13.09 18:51 asked a question on Vim, who can prompts.

(For rsdn in Emacs made some illumination and the correct transfer at a partition of quoted messages).

Now Org-Mode (as a matter of fact the same text files, but with hierarchical structure and the elementary format) - it is very convenient, easy to hide/move it whole under-tree hierarchies. For Vim there is an analog:

One of several editors which survived in forty-year competitive struggle which (subject) till now develops, till now attracts new users, and probably lives as early as years forty.
