• Vim 8.0 Released!
• Emacs 25.1 Released
Sometimes the news is reported well enough elsewhere and we have little to add other than to bring it to your attention.
No Comment is a format where we present original source information, lightly edited, so that you can decide if you want to follow it up.
Who would be so stupid or foolhardy to make a comment in the biggest and best publicized flame war in programming history, with the possible exception of spaces and tabs. Yes it is Vim V Emacs.
For reasons only the gods will fathom we have two, simultaneous, apparently major, releases of these totems of non-IDE based programming. Ah nothing quite like stirring the flames of war.
Announcing: Vim (Vi IMproved) version 8.0
Among the new features are:
Version 25.1 of the Emacs text editor is now available.
Highlights of this release include
There are many more changes; for a summary see the etc/NEWS file, which you can view from Emacs with `C-h n'.
For the complete list of changes and the people who made them, see the various ChangeLog files in the source distribution. For a summary of all the people who have contributed to Emacs, see the etc/AUTHORS file.
Printed copies of the Emacs manual are available for purchase from the Free Software Foundation's online store at: http://shop.fsf.org/product/emacs-manual/
(The version on sale is updated for Emacs 24.2, but it remains a great reference book for current Emacs, and buying a copy is a great way to support the work of the FSF.)
