Comment Stagnation != life (Score 1) 271

Bah.. stagnation is not worthy of being called life.

I love vim because it is the best. I can't use anything else because nothing else works like it.

I hate vim because it has stopped advancing. It has not had a good update for 5 years.

May 7, 2006 7.0 Spell checking, code completion, tab pages (multiple viewports/window layouts), current line and column highlighting, undo branches, and more

May 12, 2007 7.1 Bug fixes, new syntax and runtime files, etc.

August 9, 2008 7.2 Floating point support in scripts, refactored screen drawing code, bug fixes, new syntax files, etc.

August 15, 2010 7.3 Lua support, Python3 support, Blowfish encryption, persistent undo/redo

We are all still waiting for various types of extensibility, even though they been in the top 5 sponsored requests for over almost 15 years. I normally wouldn't be complaining about free software, but vim is donationware.
