VsVim Update Released (Version 0.7.2)
I just released an update to VsVim for Visual Studio 2010 RC. This should be available shortly from the extension manager in Visual Studio or it can be downloaded directly at the following link
- Key mapping: map, remap, noremap and there many variations are now supported
- Reading vimrc files on startup
- A FAQ: https://wiki.github.com/jaredpar/VsVim/faq
Originally I planned on moving straight from 0.7.0 to 0.8.0. However shortly after Visual Studio 2010 RC was released I saw a significant update in number of users for VsVim. With the new users came many new issues and feature requests. Several of the requests made, such as key remapping, were blocking issues for users. As such I decided to prioritize them over getting flashy new features into the project.
Going forward I intend to leave the 0.7.X branch as the way of unblocking users and to have 0.8.0 be the release for new value add features which aren’t necessarily blocking users (such as the . operator and a proper margin instead of using the status bar). I hope with this release I can unblock the majority of users and focus on getting 0.8.0 out the door. But I will release a 0.7.3 if there is further need for unblocking users.
Thanks to everyone who took the time to notify me about issues either by filing bugs on GitHub or sending me an email!
VsVim is now fully available on GitHub!
The usual caveats and expectations
This extension is being released by me, not by Microsoft. As such the support level for this extension is equivalent to the amount of free time I have to put into it.
Source for this release is available on the GitHub project site. It and the associated binaries are released under the MS-PL.
