INCOMPATIBLE CHANGES                            incompatible-6

These changes are incompatible with previous releases.  Check this list if you
run into a problem when upgrading from Vim 5.x to 6.0

Cursor position in Visual mode                  curpos-visual

When going from one window to another window on the same buffer while in
Visual mode, the cursor position of the other window is adjusted to keep the
same Visual area.  This can be used to set the start of the Visual area in one
window and the end in another.  In vim 5.x the cursor position of the other
window would be used, which could be anywhere and was not very useful.

Substitute command Vi compatible                substitute-CR

The substitute string (the "to" part of the substitute command) has been made
Vi compatible.  Previously a CTRL-V had a special meaning and could be used to
prevent a <CR> to insert a line break.  This made it impossible to insert a
CTRL-V before a line break.  Now a backslash is used to prevent a <CR> to
cause a line break.  Since the number of backslashes is halved, it is still
possible to insert a line break at the end of the line.  This now works just
like Vi, but it's not compatible with Vim versions before 6.0.

When a ":s" command doesn't make any substitutions, it no longer sets the '[
and '] marks.  This is not related to Vi, since it doesn't have these marks.

Global option values introduced                 new-global-values

There are now global values for options which are local to a buffer or window.
Previously the local options were copied from one buffer to another.  When
editing another file this could cause option values from a modeline to be used
for the wrong file.  Now the global values are used when entering a buffer
that has not been used before.  Also, when editing another buffer in a window,
the local window options are reset to their global values.  The ":set" command
sets both the local and global values, this is still compatible.  But a
modeline only sets the local value, this is not backwards compatible.

":let &opt = val" now sets the local and global values, like ":set".  New
commands have been added to set the global or local value:
        :let &opt = val         like ":set"
        :let &g:opt = val       like ":setglobal"
        :let &l:opt = val       like ":setlocal"

'fileencoding' changed                          fileencoding-changed

'fileencoding' was used in Vim 5.x to set the encoding used inside all of Vim.
This was a bit strange, because it was local to a buffer and worked for all
buffers.  It could never be different between buffers, because it changed the
way text in all buffers was interpreted.
It is now used for the encoding of the file related to the buffer.  If you
still set 'fileencoding' it is likely to be overwritten by the detected
encoding from 'fileencodings', thus it is "mostly harmless".
The old FileEncoding autocommand now does the same as the new EncodingChanged

Digraphs changed                                digraphs-changed

The default digraphs now correspond to RFC1345.  This is very different from
what was used in Vim 5.x. digraphs

Filetype detection changed                      filetypedetect-changed

The filetype detection previously was using the "filetype" autocommand group.
This caused confusion with the FileType event name (case is ignored).  The
group is now called "filetypedetect".  It still works, but if the "filetype"
group is used the autocommands will not be removed by ":filetype off".
   The support for 'runtimepath' has made the "myfiletypefile" and
"mysyntaxfile" mechanism obsolete.  They are still used for backwards

The connection between the FileType event and setting the 'syntax' option was
previously in the "syntax" autocommand group.  That caused confusion with the
Syntax event name.  The group is now called "syntaxset".

The distributed syntax files no longer contain "syntax clear".  That makes it
possible to include one in the other without tricks.  The syntax is now
cleared when the 'syntax' option is set (by an autocommand added from
synload.vim).  This makes the syntax cleared when the value of 'syntax' does
not correspond to a syntax file.  Previously the existing highlighting was

Unlisted buffers introduced                     new-unlisted-buffers

There is now a difference between buffers which don't appear in the buffer
list and buffers which are really not in the buffer list.  Commands like
":ls", ":bnext", ":blast" and the Buffers menu will skip buffers not in the
buffer list. unlisted-buffer
The 'buflisted' option can be used to make a buffer appear in the buffer list
or not.

Several commands that previously added a buffer to the buffer list now create
an unlisted buffer.  This means that a ":bnext" and ":ball" will not find these
files until they have actually been edited.  For example, buffers used for the
alternative file by ":write file" and ":read file".
   Other commands previously completely deleted a buffer and now only remove
the buffer from the buffer list.  Commands relying on a buffer not to be
present might fail.  For example, a ":bdelete" command in an autocommand that
relied on something following to fail (was used in the automatic tests).
:bwipeout can be used for the old meaning of ":bdelete".

The BufDelete autocommand event is now triggered when a buffer is removed from
the buffer list.  The BufCreate event is only triggered when a buffer is
created that is added to the buffer list, or when an existing buffer is added
to the buffer list.  BufAdd is a new name for BufCreate.
The new BufNew event is for creating any buffer and BufWipeout for really
deleting a buffer.

When doing Insert mode completion, only buffers in the buffer list are
scanned.  Added the 'U' flag to 'complete' to do completion from unlisted

Unlisted buffers are not stored in a viminfo file.

CTRL-U in Command-line mode changed             CTRL-U-changed

Using CTRL-U when editing the command line cleared the whole line.  Most
shells only delete the characters before the cursor.  Made it work like that.
(Steve Wall)

You can get the old behavior with CTRL-E CTRL-U: 
        :cnoremap <C-U> <C-E><C-U>

Ctags gone                                      ctags-gone

Ctags is no longer part of the Vim distribution.  It's now a grown-up program
by itself, it deserves to be distributed separately.
Ctags can be found here: http://ctags.sf.net/.

Documentation reorganized                       documentation-6

The documentation has been reorganized, an item may not be where you found it
in Vim 5.x.
- The user manual was added, some items have been moved to it from the
  reference manual.
- The quick reference is now in a separate file (so that it can be printed).

The examples in the documentation were previously marked with a ">" in the
first column.  This made it difficult to copy/paste them.  There is now a
single ">" before the example and it ends at a "<" or a non-blank in the first
column.  This also looks better without highlighting.

'helpfile' is no longer used to find the help tags file.  This allows a user
to add its own help files (e.g., for plugins).

Modeless selection and clipboard                modeless-and-clipboard

The modeless selection is used to select text when Visual mode can't be used,
for example when editing the command line or at the more prompt.
In Vim 5.x the modeless selection was always used.  On MS-Windows this caused
the clipboard to be overwritten, with no way to avoid that.  The modeless
selection now obeys the 'a' and 'A' flags in 'guioptions' and "autoselect" and
"autoselectml" in 'clipboard'.  By default there is no automatic copy on
MS-Windows.  Use the c_CTRL-Y command to manually copy the selection.

To get the old behavior back, do this: 

        :set clipboard^=autoselectml guioptions+=A

Small incompatibilities                         incomp-small-6

'backupdir', 'cdpath', 'directory', 'equalprg', 'errorfile', 'formatprg',
'grepprg', 'helpfile', 'makeef', 'makeprg', 'keywordprg', 'cscopeprg',
'viminfo' and 'runtimepath' can no longer be set from a modeline, for better

Removed '_' from the 'breakat' default: It's commonly used in keywords.

The default for 'mousehide' is on, because this works well for most people.

The Amiga binary is now always compiled with "big" features.  The "big" binary
archive no longer exists.

The items "[RO]", "[+]", "[help]", "[Preview]" and "[filetype]" in
'statusline' no longer have a leading space.

Non-Unix systems: When expanding wildcards for the Vim arguments, don't use
'suffixes'.  It now works as if the shell had expanded the arguments.

The 'lisp', 'smartindent' and 'cindent' options are not switched off when
'paste' is set.  The auto-indenting is disabled when 'paste' is set, but
manual indenting with "=" still works.

When formatting with "=" uses 'cindent' or 'indentexpr' indenting, and there
is no change in indent, this is not counted as a change ('modified' isn't set
and there is nothing to undo).

Report 'modified' as changed when 'fileencoding' or 'fileformat' was set.
Thus it reflects the possibility to abandon the buffer without losing changes.

The "Save As" menu entry now edits the saved file.  Most people expect it to
work like this.

A buffer for a directory is no longer added to the Buffers menu.

Renamed <Return> to <Enter>, since that's what it's called on most keyboards.
Thus it's now the hit-enter prompt instead of the hit-return prompt.
Can map <Enter> just like <CR> or <Return>.

The default for the 'viminfo' option is now '20,"50,h when 'compatible' isn't
set.  Most people will want to use it, including beginners, but it required
setting the option, which isn't that easy.

After using ":colder" the newer error lists are overwritten.  This makes it
possible to use ":grep" to browse in a tree-like way.  Must use ":cnewer 99"
to get the old behavior.

The patterns in 'errorformat' would sometimes ignore case (MS-Windows) and
sometimes not (Unix).  Now case is always ignored.  Add "\C" to the pattern to
match case.

The 16 bit MS-DOS version is now compiled without the +listcmds feature
(buffer list manipulation commands).  They are not often needed and this
executable needs to be smaller.

'sessionoptions' now includes "curdir" by default.  This means that restoring
a session will result in the current directory being restored, instead of
going to the directory where the session file is located.

A session deleted all buffers, deleting all marks.  Now keep the buffer list,
it shouldn't hurt for some existing buffers to remain present.
When the argument list is empty ":argdel *" caused an error message.

No longer put the search pattern from a tag jump in the history.

Use "SpecialKey" highlighting for unprintable characters instead of "NonText".
The idea is that unprintable text or any text that's displayed differently
from the characters in the file is using "SpecialKey", and "NonText" is used
for text that doesn't really exist in the file.

Motif now uses the system default colors for the menu and scrollbar.  Used to
be grey.  It's still possible to set the colors with ":highlight" commands and

Formatting text with "gq" breaks a paragraph at a non-empty blank line.
Previously the line would be removed, which wasn't very useful.

":normal" does no longer hang when the argument ends in half a command.
Previously Vim would wait for more characters to be typed, without updating
the screen.  Now it pretends an <Esc> was typed.

Bitmaps for the toolbar are no longer searched for in "$VIM/bitmaps" but in
the "bitmaps" directories in 'runtimepath'.

Now use the Cmdline-mode menus for the hit-enter prompt instead of the Normal
mode menus.  This generally works better and allows using the "Copy" menu to
produce CTRL-Y to copy the modeless selection.

Moved the font selection from the Window to the Edit menu, together with the
other settings.

The default values for 'isfname' include more characters to make "gf" work

Changed the license for the documentation to the Open Publication License.
This seemed fair, considering the inclusion of parts of the Vim book, which is
also published under the OPL.  The downside is that we can't force someone who
would sell copies of the manual to contribute to Uganda.

After  "ayy  don't let  ""yy  or  :let @" = val  overwrite the "a register.
Use the unnamed register instead.

MSDOS: A pattern "*.*" previously also matched a file name without a dot.
This was inconsistent with other versions.

In Insert mode, CTRL-O CTRL-\ CTRL-N {cmd} remains in Normal mode.  Previously
it would go back to Insert mode, thus confusing the meaning of CTRL-\ CTRL-N,
which is supposed to take us to Normal mode (especially in ":amenu").

Allow using ":" commands after an operator.  Could be used to implement a new
movement command.  Thus it no longer aborts a pending operator.

For the Amiga the "-d {device}" argument was possible.  When compiled with the
diff feature, this no longer works.  Use "-dev {device}" instead. -dev

Made the default mappings for <S-Insert> in Insert mode insert the text
literally, avoids that special characters like BS cause side effects.

Using ":confirm" applied to the rest of the line.  Now it applies only to the
command right after it.  Thus ":confirm if x | edit | endif" no longer works,
use ":if x | confirm edit | endif".  This was the original intention, that it
worked differently was a bug.

NEW FEATURES                                            new-6

Folding                                                 new-folding

Vim can now display a buffer with text folded.  This allows overviewing the
structure of a file quickly.  It is also possible to yank, delete and put
folded text, for example to move a function to another position.

There is a whole bunch of new commands and options related to folding.
See folding.

Vertically split windows                                new-vertsplit

Windows can also be split vertically.  This makes it possible to have windows
side by side.  One nice use for this is to compare two similar files (see
new-diff-mode).  The 'scrollbind' option can be used to synchronize

A vertical split can be created with the commands:
        :vsplit   or  CTRL-W v  or CTRL-W CTRL-V        :vsplit
        :vnew                                           :vnew
        :vertical {cmd}                                 :vertical
The last one is a modifier, which has a meaning for any command that splits a
window.  For example: 
        :vertical stag main
Will vertically split the window and jump to the tag "main" in the new window.

Moving from window to window horizontally can be done with the CTRL-W_h and
CTRL-W_l commands.  The CTRL-W_k and CTRL-W_j commands have been changed
to jump to the window above or below the cursor position.

The vertical and horizontal splits can be mixed as you like.  Resizing windows
is easy when using the mouse, just position the pointer on a status line or
vertical separator and drag it.  In the GUI a special mouse pointer shape
indicates where you can drag a status or separator line.

To resize vertically split windows use the CTRL-W_< and CTRL-W_> commands.
To make a window the maximum width use the CTRL-W | command CTRL-W_bar.

To force a new window to use the full width or height of the Vim window,
these two modifiers are available:
        :topleft {cmd}          New window appears at the top with full
                                width or at the left with full height.
        :botright {cmd}         New window appears at the bottom with full
                                width or at the right with full height.
This can be combined with ":vertical" to force a vertical split: 
        :vert bot dsplit DEBUG
This will open a window at the far right, occupying the full height of the Vim
window, with the cursor on the first definition of "DEBUG".
The help window is opened at the top, like ":topleft" was used, if the current
window is fewer than 80 characters wide.

A few options can be used to set the preferences for vertically split windows.
They work similar to their existing horizontal equivalents:
        horizontal      vertical 
        'splitbelow'    'splitright'
        'winheight'     'winwidth'
        'winminheight'  'winminwidth'
It's possible to set 'winminwidth' to zero, so that temporarily unused windows
hardly take up space without closing them.

The new 'eadirection' option tells where 'equalalways' applies:
        :set eadirection=both           both directions
        :set eadirection=ver            equalize window heights
        :set eadirection=hor            equalize windows widths
This can be used to avoid changing window sizes when you want to keep them.

Since windows can become quite narrow with vertical splits, text lines will
often not fit.  The 'sidescrolloff' has been added to keep some context left
and right of the cursor.  The 'listchars' option has been extended with the
"precedes" item, to show a "<" for example, when there is text left off the
screen. (Utz-Uwe Haus)

"-O" command line argument: Like "-o" but split windows vertically. (Scott

Added commands to move the current window to the very top (CTRL-W K), bottom
(CTRL-W J), left (CTRL-W H) and right (CTRL-W L).  In the new position the
window uses the full width/height of the screen.

When there is not enough room in the status line for both the file name and
the ruler, use up to half the width for the ruler.  Useful for narrow windows.

Diff mode                                               new-diff-mode

In diff mode Vim shows the differences between two, three or four files.
Folding is used to hide the parts of the file that are equal.
Highlighting is used to show deleted and changed lines.
See diff-mode.

An easy way to start in diff mode is to start Vim as "vimdiff file1 file2".
Added the vimdiff manpage.

In a running Vim the :diffsplit command starts diff mode for the current
file and another file.  The :diffpatch command starts diff mode using the
current file and a patch file.  The :diffthis command starts diff mode for
the current window.

Differences can be removed with the :diffget and :diffput commands.

- The 'diff' option switches diff mode on in a window.
- The :diffupdate command refreshes the diffs.
- The 'diffopt' option changes how diffs are displayed.
- The 'diffexpr' option can be set how a diff is to be created.
- The 'patchexpr' option can be set how patch is applied to a file.
- Added the "diff" folding method.  When opening a window for diff-mode, set
  'foldlevel' to zero and 'foldenable' on, to close the folds.
- Added the DiffAdd, DiffChange, DiffDelete and DiffText highlight groups to
  specify the highlighting for differences.  The defaults are ugly...
- Unix: make a vimdiff symbolic link for "make install".
- Removed the now obsolete "vimdiff.vim" script from the distribution.
- Added the "[c" and "]c" commands to move to the next/previous change in diff

Easy Vim: click-and-type                                new-evim

eVim stands for "Easy Vim".  This is a separate program, but can also be
started as "vim -y".

This starts Vim with 'insertmode' set to allow click-and-type editing.  The
$VIMRUNTIME/evim.vim script is used to add mappings and set options to be able
to do most things like Notepad.  This is only for people who can't stand two

eView does the same but in readonly mode.

In the GUI a CTRL-C now only interrupts when busy with something, not when
waiting for a character.  Allows using CTRL-C to copy text to the clipboard.

User manual                                             new-user-manual

The user manual has been added.  It is organised around editing tasks.  It
reads like a book, from start to end.  It should allow beginners to start
learning Vim.  It helps everybody to learn using the most useful Vim features.
It is much easier to read than the reference manual, but omits details.  See

The user manual includes parts of the Vim book by Steve Oualline frombook.
It is published under the OPL manual-copyright.

When syntax highlighting is not enabled, the characters in the help file which
mark examples ('>' and '<') and header lines ('~') are replaced with a space.

When closing the help window, the window layout is restored from before
opening it, if the window layout didn't change since then.
When opening the help window, put it at the top of the Vim window if the
current window is fewer than 80 characters and not full width.

Flexible indenting                                      new-indent-flex

Automatic indenting is now possible for any language.  It works with a Vim
script, which makes it very flexible to compute the indent.

The ":filetype indent on" command enables using the provided indent scripts.
This is explained in the user manual: 30.3.

The 'indentexpr' option is evaluated to get the indent for a line.  The
'indentkeys' option tells when to trigger re-indenting.  Normally these
options are set from an indent script.  Like Syntax files, indent scripts will
be created and maintained by many people.

Extended search patterns                                new-searchpat

Added the possibility to match more than one line with a pattern. (partly by
Loic Grenie)
New items in a search pattern for multi-line matches:
\n              match end-of-line, also in []
\_[]            match characters in range and end-of-line
\_x             match character class and end-of-line
\_.             match any character or end-of-line
\_^             match start-of-line, can be used anywhere in the regexp
\_$             match end-of-line, can be used anywhere in the regexp

Various other new items in search patterns:
\c              ignore case for the whole pattern
\C              match case for the whole pattern
\m              magic on for the following
\M              magic off for the following
\v              make following characters "very magic"
\V              make following characters "very nomagic"

\@!             don't match atom before this.
                Example: "foo\(bar\)\@!" matches "foo " but not "foobar".
\@=             match atom, resulting in  zero-width match
                Example: "foo\(bar\)\@=" matches "foo" in "foobar".
\@<!            don't match preceding atom before the current position
\@<=            match preceding atom before the current position
\@>             match preceding atom as a subexpression

\&              match only when branch before and after it match

\%[]            optionally match a list of atoms; "end\%[if]" matches "end",
                "endi" and "endif"
\%(\)           like \(\), but without creating a back-reference; there can be
                any number of these, overcomes the limit of nine \( \) pairs
\%^             match start-of-file (Chase Tingley)
\%$             match end-of-file (Chase Tingley)
\%#             Match with the cursor position. (Chase Tingley)
\?              Just like "\=" but can't be used in a "?" command.

\%23l           match in line 23
\%<23l          match before line 23
\%>23l          match after line 23
\%23c, \%<23c, \%>23c   match in/before/after column 23
\%23v, \%<23v, \%>23v   match in/before/after virtual column 23

For syntax items:
\z(...\)        external reference match set (in region start pattern)
\z1 - \z9       external reference match use (in region skip or end pattern)
        (Scott Bigham)

\zs             use position as start of match
\ze             use position as end of match

Removed limit of matching only up to 32767 times with *, \+, etc.

Added support to match multi-byte characters. (partly by Muraoka Taro)
Made "\<" and "\>" work for UTF-8. (Muraoka Taro)

UTF-8 support                                           new-utf-8

Vim can now edit files in UTF-8 encoding.  Up to 31 bit characters can be
used, but only 16 bit characters are displayed.  Up to two combining
characters are supported, they overprint the preceding character.
Double-wide characters are also supported.  See UTF-8.

UCS-2, UCS-4 and UTF-16 encodings are supported too, they are converted to
UTF-8 internally.  There is also support for editing Unicode files in a Latin1
environment.  Other encodings are converted with iconv() or an external
converter specified with 'charconvert'.

Many new items for Multi-byte support:
- Added 'encoding' option: specifies character encoding used inside Vim.  It
  can be any 8-bit encoding, some double-byte encodings or Unicode.
  It is initialized from the environment when a supported value is found.
- Added 'fileencoding' and 'fileencodings': specify character coding in a
  file, similar to 'fileformat' and 'fileformats'.
  When 'encoding' is "utf-8" and 'fileencodings' is "utf-8,latin1" this will
  automatically switch to latin1 if a file does not contain valid UTF-8.
- Added 'bomb' option and detection of a BOM at the start of a file.  Can be
  used with "ucs-bom" in 'fileencodings' to automatically detect a Unicode
  file if it starts with a BOM.  Especially useful on MS-Windows (NT and
  2000), which uses ucs-2le files with a BOM (e.g., when exporting the
- Added the 'termencoding' option: Specifies the encoding used for the
  terminal.  Useful to put Vim in utf-8 mode while in a non-Unicode locale: 
    :let &termencoding = &encoding
    :set encoding=utf-8
- When 'viminfo' contains the 'c' flag, the viminfo file is converted from the
  'encoding' it was written with to the current 'encoding'.
- Added ":scriptencoding" command: convert lines in a sourced script to
  'encoding'.  Useful for menu files.
- Added 'guifontwide' to specify a font for double-wide characters.
- Added Korean support for character class detection.  Also fix cls() in
  search.c. (Chong-Dae Park)
- Win32: Typing multi-byte characters without IME. (Alexander Smishlajev)
- Win32 with Mingw: compile with iconv library. (Ron Aaron)
- Win32 with MSVC: dynamically load iconv.dll library. (Muraoka Taro)
- Make it possible to build a version with multi-byte and iconv support with
  Borland 5.5.  (Yasuhiro Matsumoto)
- Added 'delcombine' option: Delete combining character separately. (Ron
- The "xfontset" feature isn't required for "xim".  These are now two
  independent features.
- XIM: enable XIM when typing a language character (Insert mode, Search
  pattern, "f" or "r" command).  Disable XIM when typing a Normal mode
- When the XIM is active, show "XIM" in the 'showmode' message. (Nam SungHyun)
- Support "CursorIM" for XIM.  (Nam SungHyun)
- Added 'm' flag to 'formatoptions': When wrapping words, allow splitting at
  each multibyte character, not only at a space.
- Made ":syntax keyword" work with multi-byte characters.
- Added support for Unicode upper/lowercase flipping and comparing. (based on
  patch by Raphael Finkel)
  Let "~" on multi-byte characters that have a third case ("title case")
  switch between the three cases. (Raphael Finkel)

Allow defining digraphs for multi-byte characters.
Added RFC1345 digraphs for Unicode.
Most Normal mode commands that accept a character argument, like "r", "t" and
"f" now accept a digraph.  The 'D' flag in 'cpoptions' disables this to remain
Vi compatible.

Added Language mapping and 'keymap' to be able to type multi-byte characters:
- Added the ":lmap" command and friends: Define mappings that are used when
  typing characters in the language of the text.  Also for "r", "t", etc.  In
  Insert and Command-line mode CTRL-^ switches the use of the mappings on/off.
  CTRL-^ also toggles the use of an input method when no language mappings are
  present.  Allows switching the IM back on halfway typing.
- "<char-123>" argument to ":map", allows to specify the decimal, octal or
  hexadecimal value of a character.
- Implemented the 'keymap' option: Load a keymap file.  Uses ":lnoremap" to
  define mappings for the keymap.  The new ":loadkeymap" command is used in
  the keymap file.
- Added 'k' flag in 'statusline': Value of "b:keymap_name" or 'keymap' when
  it's being used.  Uses "<lang>" when no keymap is loaded and ":lmap"s are
  active.  Show this text in the default statusline too.
- Added the 'iminsert' and 'imsearch' options: Specify use of langmap mappings
  and Input Method with an option. (Muraoka Taro)
  Added 'imcmdline' option: When set the input method is always enabled when
  starting to edit a command line.  Useful for a XIM that uses dead keys to
  type accented characters.
  Added 'imactivatekey' option to better control XIM.  (Muraoka Taro)
- When typing a mapping that's not finished yet, display the last character
  under the cursor in Insert mode and Command-line mode.  Looks good for dead
- Made the 'langmap' option recognize multi-byte characters.  But mapping only
  works for 8-bit characters.  Helps when using UTF-8.
- Use a different cursor for when ":lmap" mappings are active.  Can specify
  two highlight groups for an item in 'guicursor'.  By default "lCursor" and
  "Cursor" are equal, the user must set a color he likes.
  Use the cursor color for hangul input as well. (Sung-Hyun Nam)
- Show "(lang)" for 'showmode' when language mapping is enabled.
- UTF-8: Made "r" work with a ":lmap" that includes a composing character.
  Also works for "f", which now works to find a character that includes a
  composing character.

Other multi-byte character additions:
- Support double-byte single-width characters for euc-jp: Characters starting
  with 0x8E.  Added ScreenLines2[] to store the second byte.

Multi-language support                                  new-multi-lang

The messages used in Vim can be translated.  Several translations are
available.  This uses the gettext mechanism.  It allows adding a translation
without recompiling Vim.  multi-lang (partly by Marcin Dalecki)

The translation files are in the src/po directory.  The src/po/README.txt file
explains a few things about doing a translation.

Menu translations are available as well.  This uses the new :menutranslate
command.  The translations are found in the runtime directory "lang".  This
allows a user to add a translation.

Added :language command to set the language (locale) for messages, time and
character type.  This allows switching languages in Vim without changing the
locale outside of Vim.

Made it possible to have vimtutor use different languages.  (Eduardo Fernandez)
Spanish (Eduardo Fernandez), Italian (Antonio Colombo), Japanese (Yasuhiro
Matsumoto) and French (Adrien Beau) translations are included.
Added "vimtutor.bat": script to start Vim on a copy of the tutor file for
MS-Windows. (Dan Sharp)

- Added v:lang variable to be able to get current language setting.
  (Marcin Dalecki)  Also v:lc_time and v:ctype.
- Make it possible to translate the dialogs used by the menus.  Uses global
  "menutrans_" variables.  ":menutrans clear" deletes them.
- removed "broken locale" (Marcin Dalecki).
- Don't use color names in icons, use RGB values.  The names could be
- Win32: Added global IME support (Muraoka)
- Win32: Added dynamic loading of IME support.
- ":messages" prints a message about who maintains the messages or the
  translations.  Useful to find out where to make a remark about a wrong
- --disable-nls argument for configure: Disable use of gettext(). (Sung-Hyun
- Added NLS support for Win32 with the MingW compiler. (Eduardo Fernandez)
- When available, call bind_textdomain_codeset() to have gettext() translate
  messages to 'encoding'.  This requires GNU gettext 0.10.36 or later.
- Added gettext support for Win32.  This means messages will be translated
  when the locale is set and libintl.dll can be found.  (Muraoka Taro)
  Also made it work with MingW compiler.  (Eduardo Fernandez)
  Detect the language and set $LANG to get the appropriate translated messages
  (if supported).  Also use $LANG to select a language, v:lang is a very
  different kind of name.
- Made gvimext.dll use translated messages, if possible. (Yasuhiro Matsumoto)

Plugin support                                  new-plugins

To make it really easy to load a Vim script when starting Vim, the "plugin"
runtime directory can be used.  All "*.vim" files in it will be automatically
loaded.  For Unix, the directory "~/.vim/plugin" is used by default.  The
'runtimepath' option can be set to look in other directories for plugins.
load-plugins add-plugin

The :runtime command has been added to load one or more files in

Standard plugins:
netrw.vim - Edit files over a network new-network-files
gzip.vim - Edit compressed files
explorer.vim - Browse directories new-file-browser

Added support for local help files. add-local-help.
When searching for help tags, all "doc/tags" files in 'runtimepath' are used.
Added the ":helptags" command: Generate a tags file for a help directory.
The first line of each help file is automagically added to the "LOCAL
ADDITIONS" section in doc/help.txt.

Added the <unique> argument to ":map": only add a mapping when it wasn't
defined before.

When displaying an option value with 'verbose' set will give a message about
where the option was last set.  Very useful to find out which script did set
the value.

The new :scriptnames command displays a list of all scripts that have been

GUI: For Athena, Motif and GTK look for a toolbar bitmap in the "bitmaps"
directories in 'runtimepath'.  Allows adding your own bitmaps.

Filetype plugins                                new-filetype-plugins

A new group of files has been added to do settings for specific file types.
These can be options and mappings which are specifically used for one value of

The files are located in "$VIMRUNTIME/ftplugin".  The 'runtimepath' option
makes it possible to use several sets of plugins: Your own, system-wide,
included in the Vim distribution, etc.

To be able to make this work, several features were added:
- Added the "s:" variables, local to a script.  Avoids name conflicts with
  global variables.  They can be used in the script and in functions,
  autocommands and user commands defined in the script.  They are kept between
  invocations of the same script.  s:var
- Added the global value for local options.  This value is used when opening
  a new buffer or editing another file.  The option value specified in a
  modeline or filetype setting is not carried over to another buffer.
  ":set" sets both the local and the global value.
  ":setlocal" sets the local option value only.
  ":setglobal" sets or displays the global value for a local option.
  ":setlocal name<" sets a local option to its global value.
- Added the buffer-local value for some global options: 'equalprg', 'makeprg',
  'errorformat', 'grepprg', 'path', 'dictionary', 'thesaurus', 'tags',
  'include' and 'define'.  This allows setting a local value for these global
  options, without making it incompatible.
- Added mappings and abbreviations local to a buffer: ":map <buffer>".
- In a mapping "<Leader>" can be used to get the value of the "mapleader"
  variable.  This simplifies mappings that use "mapleader".  "<Leader>"
  defaults to "\".  "<LocalLeader>" does the same with "maplocalleader".  This
  is to be used for mappings local to a buffer.
- Added <SID> Script ID to define functions and mappings local to a script.
- Added <script> argument to ":noremap" and ":noremenu": Only remap
  script-local mappings.  Avoids that mappings from other scripts get in the
  way, but does allow using mappings defined in the script.
- User commands can be local to a buffer: ":command -buffer".

The new ":setfiletype" command is used in the filetype detection autocommands,
to avoid that 'filetype' is set twice.

File browser                                            new-file-browser

When editing a directory, the explorer plugin will list the files in the
directory.  Pressing <Enter> on a file name edits that file.  Pressing <Enter>
on a directory moves the browser to that directory.

There are several other possibilities, such as opening a file in the preview
window, renaming files and deleting files.

Editing files over a network                            new-network-files

Files starting with scp://, rcp://, ftp:// and http:// are recognized as
remote files.  An attempt is made to access these files with the indicated
method.  For http:// only reading is possible, for the others writing is also
supported.  Uses the netrw.vim script as a standard "plugin". netrw

Made "gf" work on a URL.  It no longer assumes the file is local on the
computer (mostly didn't work anyway, because the full path was required).
Adjusted test2 for this.

Allow using a URL in 'path'.  Makes ":find index.html" work.

GTK: Allow dropping a http:// and ftp:// URL on Vim.  The netrw plugin takes
care of downloading the file. (MiKael Berthe)

Window for command-line editing                         new-cmdwin

The Command-line window can be used to edit a command-line with Normal and
Insert mode commands.  When it is opened it contains the history.  This allows
copying parts of previous command lines. cmdwin

The command-line window can be opened from the command-line with the key
specified by the 'cedit' option (like Nvi).  It can also be opened directly
from Normal mode with "q:", "q/" and "q?".

The 'cmdwinheight' is used to specify the initial height of the window.

In Insert mode CTRL-X CTRL-V can be used to complete an Ex command line, like
it's done on the command-line.  This is also useful for writing Vim scripts!

Additionally, there is "improved Ex mode".  Entered when Vim is started as
"exim" or "vim -E", and with the "gQ" command.  Works like repeated use of
":", with full command-line editing and completion. (Ulf Carlsson)

Debugging mode                                          new-debug-mode

In debugging mode sourced scripts and user functions can be executed line by
line.  There are commands to step over a command or step into it. debug-mode

Breakpoints can be set to run until a certain line in a script or user
function is executed. :breakadd

Debugging can be started with ":debug {cmd}" to debug what happens when a
command executes.  The -D argument can be used to debug while starting up.

Cursor in virtual position                              new-virtedit

Added the 'virtualedit' option: Allow positioning the cursor where there is no
actual character in Insert mode, Visual mode or always. (Matthias Kramm)
This is especially useful in Visual-block mode.  It allows positioning a
corner of the area where there is no text character.  (Many improvements by
Chase Tingley)

Debugger interface                                      new-debug-itf

This was originally made to work with Sun Visual Workshop. (Gordon Prieur)
See debugger.txt, sign.txt and workshop.txt.

Added the ":sign" command to define and place signs.  They can be displayed
with two ASCII characters or an icon.  The line after it can be highlighted.
Useful to display breakpoints and the current PC position.

Added the :wsverb command to execute debugger commands.

Added balloon stuff: 'balloondelay' and 'ballooneval' options.

Added "icon=" argument for ":menu".  Allows defining a specific icon for a
ToolBar item.

Communication between Vims                              new-vim-server

Added communication between two Vims.  Makes it possible to send commands from
one Vim to another.  Works for X-Windows and MS-Windows clientserver.

Use "--remote" to have files be edited in an already running Vim.
Use "--remote-wait" to do the same and wait for the editing to finish.
Use "--remote-send" to send commands from one Vim to another.
Use "--remote-expr" to have an expression evaluated in another Vim.
Use "--serverlist" to list the currently available Vim servers.  (X only)
There are also functions to communicate between the server and the client.
remote_send() remote_expr()

(X-windows version implemented by Flemming Madsen, MS-Windows version by Paul

Added the command server name to the window title, so you can see which server
name belongs to which Vim.

Removed the OleVim directory and SendToVim.exe and EditWithVim.exe from the
distribution.  Can now use "gvim --remote" and "gvim --remote-send", which is

GTK+: Support running Vim inside another window.  Uses the --socketid argument
(Neil Bird)

Buffer type options                                     new-buftype

The 'buftype' and 'bufhidden' options have been added.  They can be set to
have different kinds of buffers.  For example:
- 'buftype' = "quickfix": buffer with error list
- 'buftype' = "nofile" and 'bufhidden' = "delete": scratch buffer that will be
  deleted as soon as there is no window displaying it.

'bufhidden' can be used to overrule the 'hidden' option for one buffer.

In combination with 'buflisted' and 'swapfile' this offers the possibility to
use various kinds of special buffers.  See special-buffers.

Printing                                                new-printing

Included first implementation of the ":hardcopy" command for printing
to paper.  For MS-Windows any installed printer can be used.  For other
systems a PostScript file is generated, which can be printed with the
'printexpr' option.
(MS-Windows part by Vince Negri, Vipin Aravind, PostScript by Vince Negri and
Mike Williams)

Made ":hardcopy" work with multi-byte characters. (Muraoka Taro, Yasuhiro

Added options to tune the way printing works: (Vince Negri)
- 'printoptions' defines various things.
- 'printheader' specifies the header format.  Added "N" field to 'statusline'
  for the page number.
- 'printfont' specifies the font name and attributes.
- 'printdevice' defines the default printer for ":hardcopy!".

Ports                                                   ports-6

Port to OS/390 Unix (Ralf Schandl)
- A lot of changes to handle EBCDIC encoding.
- Changed Ctrl('x') to Ctrl_x define.

Included jsbmouse support. (Darren Garth)
Support for dec mouse in Unix. (Steve Wall)

Port to 16-bit MS Windows (Windows 3.1x) (Vince Negri)

Port to QNX.  Supports the Photon GUI, mouse, etc. (Julian Kinraid)

Allow cross-compiling the Win32 version with Make_ming.mak. (Ron Aaron)
Added Python support for compiling with Mingw. (Ron Aaron)

Dos 32 bit: Added support the Windows clipboard. (David Kotchan)

Win32: Dynamically load Perl and Python.  Allows compiling Vim with these
interfaces and will try to find the DLLs at runtime. (Muraoka Taro)

Compiling the Win32 GUI with Cygwin.  Also compile vimrun, dosinst and
uninstall.  (Gerfried)

Mac: Make Vim compile with the free MPW compiler supplied by Apple.  And
updates for CodeWarrior. (Axel Kielhorn)

Added typecasts and ifdefs as a start to make Vim work on Win64 (George

Quickfix extended                                       quickfix-6

Added the "error window".  It contains all the errors of the current error
list.  Pressing <Enter> in a line makes Vim jump to that line (in another
window).  This makes it easy to navigate through the error list.

- :copen opens the quickfix window.
- :cclose closes the quickfix window.
- :cwindow takes care that there is a quickfix window only when there are
  recognized errors. (Dan Sharp)

- Quickfix also knows "info", next to "warning" and "error" types.  "%I" can be
  used for the start of a multi-line informational message. (Tony Leneis)
- The "%p" argument can be used in 'errorformat' to get the column number from
  a line where "^" points to the column. (Stefan Roemer)
- When using "%f" in 'errorformat' on a DOS/Windows system, also include "c:"
  in the filename, even when using "%f:".

Operator modifiers                                      new-operator-mod

Insert "v", "V" or CTRL-V between an operator and a motion command to force
the operator to work characterwise, linewise or blockwise. o_v

Search Path                                             new-search-path

Vim can search in a directory tree not only in downwards but also upwards.
Works for the 'path', 'cdpath' and 'tags' options. (Ralf Schandl)

Also use "**" for 'tags' option. (Ralf Schandl)

Added 'includeexpr', can be used to modify file name found by 'include'
Also use 'includeexpr' for "gf" and "<cfile>" when the file can't be found
without modification.  Useful for doing "gf" on the name after an include or
import statement.

Added the 'cdpath' option: Locations to find a ":cd" argument. (Raf)

Added the 'suffixesadd' option: Suffixes to be added to a file name when
searching for a file for the "gf", "[I", etc. commands.

Writing files improved                                  new-file-writing

Added the 'backupcopy' option: Select whether a file is to be copied or
renamed to make a backup file.  Useful on Unix to speed up writing an ordinary
file.  Useful on other systems to preserve file attributes and when editing a
file on a Unix filesystem.

Added the 'autowriteall' option.  Works like 'autowrite' but for more

Added the 'backupskip' option: A list of file patterns to skip making a backup
file when it matches.  The default for Unix includes "/tmp/*", this makes
"crontab -e" work.

Added support for Access Control Lists (ACL) for FreeBSD and Win32.  The ACL
is copied from the original file to the new file (or the backup if it's
ACL is also supported for AIX, Solaris and generic POSIX. (Tomas Ogren)
And on SGI.

Argument list                                           new-argument-list

The support for the argument list has been extended.  It can now be
manipulated to contain the files you want it to contain.

The argument list can now be local to a window.  It is created with the
:arglocal command.  The :argglobal command can be used to go back to the
global argument list.

The :argdo command executes a command on all files in the argument list.

File names can be added to the argument list with :argadd.  File names can
be removed with :argdelete.

"##" can be used like "#", it is replaced by all the names in the argument
list concatenated.  Useful for ":grep foo ##".

The :argedit adds a file to the argument list and edits it.  Like ":argadd"
and then ":edit".

Restore a View                                          new-View

The ":mkview" command writes a Vim script with the settings and mappings for
one window.  When the created file is sourced, the view of the window is
restored.  It's like ":mksession" for one window.
The View also contains the local argument list and manually created, opened
and closed folds.

Added the ":loadview" command and the 'viewdir' option: Allows for saving and
restoring views of a file with simple commands.  ":mkview 1" saves view 1 for
the current file, ":loadview 1" loads it again.  Also allows quickly switching
between two views on one file.  And saving and restoring manual folds and the
folding state.

Added 'viewoptions' to specify how ":mkview" works.

":mksession" now also works fine with vertical splits.  It has been further
improved and restores the view of each window.  It also works properly with
preview and quickfix windows.

'sessionoptions' is used for ":mkview" as well.
Added "curdir" and "sesdir" to 'sessionoptions'.  Allows selection of what
the current directory will be restored to.

The session file now also contains the argument list(s).

Color schemes                                           new-color-schemes

Support for loading a color scheme.  Added the ":colorscheme" command.
Automatically add menu entries for available schemes.
Should now properly reset the colors when 'background' or 't_Co' is changed.
":highlight clear" sets the default colors again.
":syntax reset" sets the syntax highlight colors back to the defaults.
For ":set bg&" guess the value.  This allows a color scheme to switch back to
the default colors.
When syntax highlighting is switched on and a color scheme was defined, reload
the color scheme to define the colors.

Various new items                                       new-items-6

Normal mode commands: 

"gi"            Jump to the ^ mark and start Insert mode.  Also works when the
                mark is just after the line. gi

"g'm" and "g`m"
                Jump to a mark without changing the jumplist.  Now you can use
                g`" to jump to the last known position in a file without side
                effects.  Also useful in mappings.

[', [`, ]' and ]`
                move the cursor to the next/previous lowercase mark.

g_              Go to last non-blank in line. (Steve Wall)


'autoread'      When detected that a file changed outside of Vim,
                automatically read a buffer again when it's not changed.
                It has a global and a local value.  Use ":setlocal autoread<"
                to go back to using the global value for 'autoread'.

'debug'         When set to "msg" it will print error messages that would
                otherwise be omitted.  Useful for debugging 'indentexpr' and

'lispwords'     List of words used for lisp indenting.  It was previously hard
                coded.  Added a number of Lisp names to the default.

'fold...'       Many new options for folding.

'modifiable'    When off, it is impossible to make changes to a buffer.
                The %m and %M items in 'statusline' show a '-'.

'previewwindow' Set in the preview window.  Used in a session file to mark a
                window as the preview window.

'printoptions'  for ":hardcopy".

'buflisted'     Makes a buffer appear in the buffer list or not.

Use "vim{version}:" for modelines, only to be executed when the version is
>= {version}.  Also "vim>{version}", "vim<{version}" and "vim={version}".

Ex commands: 

:sav[eas][!] {file}
                Works like ":w file" and ":e #", but without loading the file
                again and avoiding other side effects. :saveas

:silent[!] {cmd}
                Execute a command silently.  Also don't use a delay that would
                come after the message.  And don't do 'showmatch'.
                RISCOS: Removed that "!~cmd" didn't output anything, and
                didn't wait for <Enter> afterwards.  Can use ":silent !cmd"
:menu <silent>  Add a menu that won't echo Ex commands.
:map <silent>   Add a mapping that won't echo Ex commands.

:checktime      Check for changed buffers.

:verbose {cmd}  Set 'verbose' for one command.

:echomsg {expr}
:echoerr {expr} Like ":echo" but store the message in the history. (Mark

:grepadd        Works just like ":grep" but adds to the current error list
                instead of defining a new list. :grepadd

:finish         Finish sourcing a file.  Can be used to skip the rest of a Vim
                script. :finish

:aboveleft      Split left/above current window.

:belowright     Split right/below current window.

:first, :bfirst, :ptfirst, etc.
                Alias for ":rewind".  It's more logical compared to ":last".

:enew           Edit a new, unnamed buffer.  This is needed, because ":edit"
                re-edits the same file. (Wall)

:quitall        Same as ":qall".

:match          Define match highlighting local to a window.  Allows
                highlighting an item in the current window without interfering
                with syntax highlighting.

:menu enable
:menu disable   Commands to enable/disable menu entries without removing them.
                (Monish Shah)

:windo          Execute a command in all windows.
:bufdo          Execute a command in all buffers.

:wincmd         Window (CTRL-W) command.  Useful when a Normal mode command
                can't be used (e.g., for a CursorHold autocommand).  See
                CursorHold-example for a nice application with it.

:lcd and :lchdir
                Set local directory for a window. (Benjie Chen)

:hide {command}
                Execute {command} with 'hidden' set.

:emenu          in Visual mode to execute a ":vmenu" entry.

:popup          Pop up a popup menu.

:redraw         Redraw the screen even when busy with a script or function.

:hardcopy       Print to paper.

:compiler       Load a Vim script to do settings for a specific compiler.

:z#             List numbered lines. (Bohdan Vlasyuk)

New marks: 

'( and ')       Begin or end of current sentence.  Useful in Ex commands.
'{ and '}       Begin or end of current paragraph.  Useful in Ex commands.
'.              Position of the last change in the current buffer.
'^              Position where Insert mode was stopped.

Store the ^ and . marks in the viminfo file.  Makes it possible to jump to the
last insert position or changed text.

inputdialog()   Like input() but use a GUI dialog when possible.  Currently
                only works for Win32, Motif, Athena and GTK.
                Use inputdialog() for the Edit/Settings/Text Width menu.  Also
                for the Help/Find.. and Toolbar FindHelp items.
                (Win32 support by Thore B. Karlsen)
                (Win16 support by Vince Negri)

Added expansion of curly braces in variable and function names.  This can be
used for variable names that include the value of an option.  Or a primitive
form of arrays. (Vince Negri)

New autocommand events: 
BufWinEnter     Triggered when a buffer is displayed in a window, after using
                the modelines.  Can be used to load a view.
BufWinLeave     Triggered when a buffer is no longer in a window.  Also
                triggered when exiting Vim.  Can be used to save views.
FileChangedRO   Triggered before making the first change to a read-only file.
                Can be used to check-out the file. (Scott Graham)
TermResponse    Triggered when the terminal replies to the version-request.
                The v:termresponse internal variable holds the result.  Can be
                used to react to the version of the terminal.  (Ronald Schild)
FileReadCmd     Triggered before reading a file.
BufReadCmd      Triggered before reading a file into a buffer.

system. (Charles Campbell)

New Syntax files: 

bdf             BDF font definition (Nikolai Weibull)
catalog         SGML catalog (Johannes Zellner)
debchangelog    Debian Changelog (Wichert Akkerman)

Updated many syntax files to work both with Vim 5.7 and 6.0.

Interface to Ruby. (Shugo Maeda)
Support dynamic loading of the Ruby interface on MS-Windows. (Muraoka Taro)
Support this for Mingw too. (Benoit Cerrina)

Win32: Added possibility to load TCL dynamically. (Muraoka Taro)
Also for Borland 5.5. (Dan Sharp)

Win32: When editing a file that is a shortcut (*.lnk file), edit the file it
links to.  Unless 'binary' is set, then edit the shortcut file itself.
(Yasuhiro Matsumoto)

The ":command" command now accepts a "-bar" argument.  This allows the user
command to be followed by "| command".

The preview window is now also used by these commands:
- :pedit edits the specified file in the preview window
- :psearch searches for a word in included files, like :ijump, and
  displays the found text in the preview window.
Added the CTRL-W P command: go to preview window.

MS-DOS and MS-Windows also read the system-wide vimrc file $VIM/vimrc.  Mostly
for NT systems with multiple users.

A double-click of the mouse on a character that has a "%" match selects from
that character to the match.  Similar to "v%".

"-S session.vim" argument: Source a script file when starting up.  Convenient
way to start Vim with a session file.

Added "--cmd {command}" Vim argument to execute a command before a vimrc file
is loaded. (Vince Negri)

Added the "-M" Vim argument: reset 'modifiable' and 'write', thus disallow
making changes and writing files.

Added runtime/delmenu.vim.  Source this to remove all menus and prepare for
loading new menus.  Useful when changing 'langmenu'.

Perl script to filter Perl error messages to quickfix usable format. (Joerg

Added runtime/macros/less.vim: Vim script to simulate less, but with syntax

MS-Windows install program: (Jon Merz)
- The Win32 program can now create shortcuts on the desktop and install Vim in
  the Start menu.
- Possibly remove old "Edit with Vim" entries.
- The Vim executable is never moved or $PATH changed.  A small batch file is
  created in a directory in $PATH.  Fewer choices to be made.
- Detect already installed Vim versions and offer to uninstall them first.

Improved the MS-Windows uninstal program.  It now also deletes the entries in
the Start menu, icons from the desktop and the created batch files. (Jon Merz)
Also made it possible to delete only some of these.  Also unregister gvim for

Generate a self-installing Vim package for MS-Windows.  This uses NSIS. (Jon
Merz et al.)

Added ":filetype detect".  Try detecting the filetype again.  Helps when
writing a new shell script, after adding "#!/bin/csh".

Added ":augroup! name" to delete an autocommand group.  Needed for the
client-server "--remote-wait".

Add the Vim version number to the viminfo file, useful for debugging.

IMPROVEMENTS                                            improvements-6

Added the 'n' flag in 'cpoptions': When omitted text of wrapped lines is not
put between line numbers from 'number' option.  Makes it a lot easier to read
wrapped lines.

When there is a format error in a tags file, the byte position is reported so
that the error can be located.

"gf" works in Visual mode: Use the selected text as the file name. (Chase

Allow ambiguous mappings.  Thus "aa" and "aaa" can both be mapped, the longest
matching one is used.  Especially useful for ":lmap" and 'keymap'.

Encryption: Ask the key to be typed twice when crypting the first time.
Otherwise a typo might cause the text to be lost forever. (Chase Tingley)

The window title now has "VIM" on the end.  The file name comes first, useful
in the taskbar.  A "+" is added when the file is modified.  "=" is added for
a read-only file.  "-" is added for a file with 'modifiable' off.

In Visual mode, mention the size of the selected area in the 'showcmd'

Added the "b:changedtick" variable.  Incremented at each change, also for
undo.  Can be used to take action only if the buffer has been changed.

In the replacement string of a ":s" command "\=" can be used to replace with
the result of an expression.  From this expression the submatch() function can
be used to access submatches.

When doing ":qall" and there is a change in a buffer that is being edited in
another window, jump to that window, instead of editing that buffer in the
current window.

Added the "++enc=" and "++ff=" arguments to file read/write commands to force
using the given 'encoding' or 'fileformat'.  And added the "v:cmdarg"
variable, to be used for FileReadCmd autocommands that read/write the file

When reading stdin, first read the text in binary mode and then re-read it
with automatic selection of 'fileformat' and 'fileencoding'.  This avoids
problems with not being able to rewind the file (e.g., when a line near the
end of the file ends in LF instead of CR-LF).
When reading text from stdin and the buffer is empty, don't mark it changed.
Allows exiting without trouble.

Added an ID to many error messages.  This will make it easier to find help for
a message.

Insert mode:
- "CTRL-G j" and "CTRL-G k" can be used to insert in another line in the same
  column.  Useful for editing a table.
- Added Thesaurus completion with CTRL-X CTRL-T. (Vince Negri)
- Added the 'thesaurus' option, to use instead of 'dictionary' for thesaurus
  completion.  Added the 's' flag in 'complete'.
- Made CTRL-X CTRL-L in Insert mode use the 'complete' option.  It now also
  scans other loaded buffers for matching lines.
- CTRL-R now also works in Insert mode while doing completion with CTRL-X or
  CTRL-N. (Neil Bird)
- When doing Insert mode completion, when completion is finished check for a
  match with words from 'cinkeys' or 'indentkeys'.

- Made display updating more efficient.  Insert/delete lines may be used for
  all changes, also for undo/redo.
- The display is not redrawn when there is typeahead in Insert mode.  Speeds
  up CTRL-R a lot.
- Improved speed of screen output for 32 bit DOS version. (Vince Negri)
- When dragging with the mouse, there is a lookahead to skip mouse codes when
  there is another one next.  Makes dragging with the mouse a lot faster.
- Also a memory usage improvement: When calling u_save with a single line,
  don't save it if the line was recently saved for the same undo already.
- When using a script that appends one character at a time, the amount of
  allocated memory was growing steadily.  Also when 'undolevels' is -1.
  Caused by the line saved for "U" never to be freed.  Now free an undo block
  when it becomes empty.
- GUI and Dos32: Use a vertical scroll region, to make scrolling in a
  vertically split window faster.  No need to redraw the whole window.
- When scrolling isn't possible with terminal codes (e.g., for a vertically
  split window) redraw from ScreenLines[].  That should be faster than going
  through the lines with win_line(), especially when using syntax
- The Syntax menu is now pre-generated by a separate script.  Makes loading
  the menu 70% faster.  This can halve the startup time of gvim.
- When doing ":help tag", don't open help.txt first, jump directly to the help
  tag.  It's faster and avoids an extra message.
- Win32: When a file name doesn't end in ".lnk" don't try resolving a
  shortcut, it takes quite a bit of time.
- Don't update the mouse pointer shape while there are typeahead characters.
- Change META[] from a string into an array, avoids using strchr() on it.
- Don't clear the command line when adding characters, avoids that screen_fill
  is called but doesn't do anything.

- Unix: Check for running out of stack space when executing a regexp.  Avoids
  a nasty crash.  Only works when the system supports running the signal
  function on another stack.
- Disallow ":source <dirname>".  On unix it's possible to read a directory,
  does not make sense to use it as Vim commands.

- When reading from or writing to a temporary file, check that it isn't a
  symbolic link.  Gives some protection against symlink attacks.
- When creating a backup file copy or a swap file, check for it already
  existing to avoid a symlink attack. (Colin Phipps)
- Evaluating options which are an expression is done in a sandbox.  If the
  option was set by a modeline, it cannot cause damage.
- Use a secure way to generate temp file names: Create a private directory for
  temp files.  Used for Unix, MS-DOS and OS/2.
- 'makeef' can be empty, which means that an internally generated file name is
  used.  The old default was "/tmp/file", which is a security risk.
  Writing 'makeef' in the current directory fails in a read-only directory and
  causes trouble when using ":grep" on all files.  Made the default empty for
  all systems, so that a temp file is used.
- The command from a tags file is executed in the sandbox for better security.
- The Ruby, Tcl and Python interfaces cannot be used from the sandbox.  They
  might do dangerous things.  Perl is still possible, but limited to the Safe
  environment. (Donnie Smith)

Syntax highlighting:
- Optimized the speed by caching the state stack all over the file, not just
  the part being displayed.  Required for folding.
- Added ":syntax sync fromstart": Always parse from the start of the file.
- Added the "display" argument for syntax items: use the item only when
  displaying the result.  Can make parsing faster for text that isn't going to
  be displayed.
- When using CTRL-L, the cached states are deleted, to force parsing the text
- Use elfhash algorithm for table of keywords.  This should give a better
  distribution and speedup keyword lookup. (Campbell)
- Also allow the "lc" leading context for skip and end patterns. (Scott
- Syntax items can have the "extend" argument to undo the effect of a
  "keepend" argument of an item it is contained in.  Makes it possible to have
  some contained items extend a region while others don't.
- ":syntax clear" now deletes the b:current_syntax variable.  That's logical,
  since no syntax is defined after this command.
- Added ":syntax enable": switch on syntax highlighting without changing the
  colors.  This allows specifying the colors in the .vimrc file without the
  need for a mysyntaxfile.
- Added ":syntax reset": reset the colors to their defaults.
- Added the "contains=TOP" and "contains=CONTAINED" arguments.  Makes it
  possible to define a transparent item that doesn't contain itself.
- Added a "containedin" argument to syntax items.  Allows adding a contained
  item to an existing item (e.g., to highlight a name in a comment).

Modeless selection:
- When in the command-line window, use modeless selection in the other
  windows.  Makes it possible to copy visible text to the command-line window.
- Support modeless selection on the cmdline in a terminal.  Previously it was
  only possible for the GUI.
- Make double-right-click in modeless selection select a whole word.  Single
  right click doesn't use the word selection started by a double-left-click.
  Makes it work like in Visual mode.
- The modeless selection no longer has an implied automatic copy to the
  clipboard.  It now obeys the 'a' and 'A' flags in 'guioptions' or
  "autoselect" and "autoselectml" in 'clipboard'.
- Added the CTRL-Y command in Cmdline-mode to copy the modeless selection to
  the clipboard.  Also works at the hit-enter prompt and the more prompt.
  Removed the mappings in runtime/mswin.vim for CTRL-Y and CTRL-Z in
  cmdline-mode to be able to use CTRL-Y in the new way.

Reduced the amount of stack space used by regmatch() to allow it to handle
complicated patterns on a longer text.

'isfname' now includes '%' and '#'.  Makes "vim dir\#file" work for MS-DOS.

Added keypad special keys <kEnter>, <k0> - <k9>.  When not mapped they behave
like the ASCII equivalent. (Ivan Wellesz and Vince Negri)
Recognize a few more xterm keys: <C-Right>, <C-Left>, <C-End>, <C-Home>

Also trigger the BufUnload event when Vim is going to exit.  Perhaps a script
needs to do some cleaning up.

Expand expression in backticks: ={expr}.  Can be used where backtick
expansion is done. (Vince Negri)

- Added 'L' and 'R' flags in 'guioptions': Add a left or right scrollbar only
  when there is a vertically split window.
- X11: When a color can't be allocated, use the nearest match from the
  colormap.  This avoids that black is used for many things. (Monish Shah)
  Also do this for the menu and scrollbar, to avoid that they become black.
- Win32 and X11: Added 'mouseshape' option: Adjust the mouse pointer shape to
  the current mode. (Vince Negri)
- Added the 'linespace' option: Insert a pixel line between lines. (Nam)
- Allow modeless selection (without moving the cursor) by keeping CTRL and
  SHIFT pressed. (Ivan Wellesz)
- Motif: added toolbar. (Gordon Prieur)  Also added tooltips.
- Athena: added toolbar and tooltips. (David Harrison -- based on Gordon
  Prieur's work)
- Made the 'toolbar' option work for Athena and Motif.  Can now switch between
  text and icons on the fly.  (David Harrison)
- Support menu separator lines for Athena.  (David Harrison)
- Athena: Adjust the arrow pixmap used in a pullright menu to the size of the
  font. (David Harrison)
- Win32: Added "c" flag to 'guifont' to be able to specify the charset. (Artem
- When no --enable-xim argument is given, automatically enable it when a X GUI
  is used.  Required for dead key support (and multi-byte input).
- After a file selection dialog, check that the edited files were not changed
  or deleted.  The Win32 dialog allows deleting and renaming files.
- Motif and Athena: Added support for "editres". (Marcin Dalecki)
- Motif and Athena: Added "menuFont" to be able to specify a font or fontset
  for the menus.  Can also be set with the "Menu" highlight group.  Useful
  when the locale is different from 'encoding'. (David Harrison)
  When FONTSET_ALWAYS is defined, always use a fontset for the menus.  Should
  avoid trouble with changing from a font to a fontset.  (David Harrison)
- Highlighting and font for the tooltips can be specified with the "Tooltip"
  highlight group. (David Harrison)
- The Cmdline-mode menus can be used at the more-prompt.  This mostly works
  fine, because they start with a CTRL-C.  The "Copy" menu works to copy the
  modeless selection.  Allows copying the output of ":set all" or ":intro"
  without auto-selection.
- When starting the GUI when there is no terminal connected to stdout and
  stderr, display error messages in a dialog.  Previously they wouldn't be
  displayed at all.
- Allow setting 'browsedir' to the name of a directory, to be used for the
  file dialog. (Dan Sharp)
- b:browsefilter and g:browsefilter can be set to the filters used for the
  file dialog.  Supported for Win32 and Motif GUI. (Dan Sharp)

- Support for the clipboard selection as register "+.  When exiting or
  suspending copy the selection to cut buffer 0.  Should allow copy/paste with
  more applications in a X11-standard way.  (Neil Bird)
- Use the X clipboard in any terminal, not just in an xterm.
  Added "exclude:" in 'clipboard': Specify a pattern to match against terminal
  names for which no connection should be made to the X server.  The default
  currently work for FreeBSD and Linux consoles.
- Added a few messages for when 'verbose' is non-zero to show what happens
  when trying to connect to the X server.  Should help when trying to find out
  why startup is slow.

GTK GUI: (partly by Marcin Dalecki)
- With some fonts the characters can be taller than ascent + descent.  E.g.,
  "-misc-fixed-*-*-*-*-18-*-*-*-*-*-iso10646-1".  Add one to the character
  cell height.
- Implement "no" value for 'winaltkeys': don't use Alt-Key as a menu shortcut,
  when 'wak' changed after creating the menus.
- Setting 'wak' after the GUI started works.
- recycle text GC's to reduce communication.
- Adjust icon size to window manager.
- Cleanup in font handling.
- Replace XQueryColor with GDK calls.
- Gnome support.  Detects Gnome in configure and uses different widgets.
  Otherwise it's much like GTK. (Andy Kahn)
  It is disabled by default, because it causes a few problems.
- Removed the special code to fork first and then start the GUI.  Now use
  _exit() instead of exit(), this works fine without special tricks.
- Dialogs sometimes appeared a bit far away.  Position the dialogs inside
  the gvim window. (Brent Verner)
- When dropping a file on Vim, remove extra slashes from the start of the
  path.  Also shorten the file name if possible.

Motif: (Marcin Dalecki)
- Made the dialog layout better.
- Added find and find/replace dialogs.
- For the menus, change "iso-8859" to "iso_8859", Linux appears to need this.
- Added icon to dialogs, like for GTK.
- Use XPM bitmaps for the icon when possible.  Use the Solaris XpmP.h include
  file when it's available.
- Change the shadow of the toolbar items to get a visual feedback of it being
  pressed on non-LessTif.
- Use gadgets instead of windows for some items for speed.

Command line completion:
- Complete environment variable names. (Mike Steed)
- For ":command", added a few completion methods: "mapping", "function",
  "expression" and "environment".
- When a function doesn't take arguments, let completion add () instead of (.

For MS-DOS, MS-Windows and OS/2: Expand %VAR% environment variables like $VAR.
(Walter Briscoe)

Redirect messages to the clipboard ":redir @*" and to the unnamed register
":redir @"". (Wall)

":let @/ = ''" clears the search pattern, instead of setting it to an empty

Expression evaluation:
- "? :" can be used like in C.
- col("$") returns the length of the cursor line plus one. (Stephen P. Wall)
- Optional extra argument for match(), matchend() and matchstr(): Offset to
  start looking for a match.
- Made third argument to strpart() optional.  (Paul Moore, Zdenek Sekera)
- exists() can also be used to check for Ex commands and defined autocommands.
- Added extra argument to input(): Default text.
- Also set "v:errmsg" when using ":silent! cmd".
- Added the v:prevcount variable: v:count for the previous command.
- Added "v:progname", name with which Vim was started. (Vince Negri)
- In the verbose message about returning from a function, also show the return

- Added the cscope_connection() function. (Andy Kahn)
- ":cscope kill -1" kills all cscope connections. (Andy Kahn)
- Added the 'cscopepathcomp' option. (Scott Hauck)
- Added ":scscope" command, split window and execute Cscope command. (Jason

- Command line arguments are always uppercase.  Interpret a "-X" argument as
  "-x" and "-/X" as "-X".
- Set 'makeprg' and 'grepprg' to meaningful defaults. (Zoltan Arpadffy)
- Use the X-clipboard feature and the X command server. (Zoltan Arpadffy)

Macintosh: (Dany St-Amant)
- Allow a tags file to have CR, CR-LF or LF line separator. (Axel Kielhorn)
- Carbonized (while keeping non Carbon code)
  (Some work "stolen" from Ammon Skidmore)
- Improved the menu item index handling (should be faster)
- Runtime commands now handle / in file name (MacOS 9 version)
- Added ":winpos" support.
- Support using "~" in file names for home directory.

- When using set += or ^= , check for items used twice.  Duplicates are
  removed.  (Vince Negri)
- When setting an option that is a list of flags, remove duplicate flags.
- If possible, use getrlimit() to set 'maxmemtot' and 'maxmem'. (Pina)
- Added "alpha" to 'nrformats': increment or decrement an alphabetic character
  with CTRL-A and CTRL-X.
- ":set opt&vi" sets an option to its Vi default, ":set opt&vim" to its Vim
  default.  Useful to set 'cpo' to its Vim default without knowing what flags
  that includes.
- 'scrolloff' now also applies to a long, wrapped line that doesn't fit in the
- Added more option settings to the default menus.
- Updated the option window with new options.  Made it a bit easier to read.

Internal changes:
- Split line pointers in text part and attributes part.  Allows for future
  change to make attribute more than one byte.
- Provide a qsort() function for systems that don't have it.
- Changed the big switch for Normal mode commands into a table.  This cleans
  up the code considerably and avoids trouble for some optimizing compilers.
- Assigned a negative value to special keys, to avoid them being mixed up with
  Unicode characters.
- Global variables expand_context and expand_pattern were not supposed to be
  global.  Pass them to ExpandOne() and all functions called by it.
- No longer use the global reg_ic flag.  It caused trouble and in a few places
  it was not set.
- Removed the use of the stuff buffer for "*", "K", CTRL-], etc.  Avoids
  problem with autocommands.
- Moved some code from ex_docmd.c to ex_cmds2.c.  The file was getting too
  big.  Also moved some code from screen.c to move.c.
- Don't include the CRC table for encryption, generate it.  Saves quite a bit
  of space in the source code. (Matthias Kramm)
- Renamed multibyte.c to mbyte.c to avoid a problem with 8.3 filesystems.
- Removed the GTK implementation of ":findhelp", it now uses the
  ToolBar.FindHelp  menu entry.
- Renamed mch_windexit() to mch_exit(), mch_init() to mch_early_init() and
  mch_shellinit() to mch_init().

- In a ":highlight" listing, show "xxx" with the highlight color.
- Added support for xterm with 88 or 256 colors.  The right color numbers will
  be used for the name used in a ":highlight" command. (Steve Wall)
- Added "default" argument for ":highlight".  When included, the command is
  ignored if highlighting for the group was already defined.
  All syntax files now use ":hi default ..." to allow the user to specify
  colors in his vimrc file.  Also, the "if did_xxx_syntax_inits" is not needed
  anymore.  This greatly simplifies using non-default colors for a specific
- Adjusted colortest.vim: Included colors on normal background and reduced the
  size by using a while loop. (Rafael Garcia-Suarez)
- Added the "DarkYellow" color name.  Just to make the list of standard colors
  consistent, it's not really a nice color to use.

When an xterm is in 8-bit mode this is detected by the code returned for
t_RV.  All key codes are automatically converted to their 8-bit versions.

The OPT_TCAP_QUERY in xterm patch level 141 and later is used to obtain the
actual key codes used and the number of colors for t_Co.  Only when t_RV is
also used.

":browse set" now also works in the console mode.  ":browse edit" will give an
error message.

":bdelete" and ":bunload" only report the number of deleted/unloaded buffers
when more than 'report'.  The message was annoying when deleting a buffer in a

Jump list:
- The number of marks kept in the jumplist has been increased from 50 to 100.
- The jumplist is now stored in the viminfo file.  CTRL-O can be used to jump
  to positions from a previous edit session.
- When doing ":split" copy the jumplist to the new window.

Also set the '[ and '] marks for the "~" and "r" commands.  These marks are
now always set when making a change with a Normal mode command.

Python interface: Allow setting the width of a vertically split window. (John

Added "=word" and "=~word" to 'cinkeys' (also used in 'indentkeys').

Added "j1" argument in 'cinoptions': indent {} inside () for Java. (Johannes
Added the "l" flag in 'cinoptions'. (Anduin Withers)
Added 'C', 'U', 'w' and 'm' flags to 'cinoptions'. (Servatius Brandt)

When doing ":wall" or ":wqall" and a modified buffer doesn't have a name,
mention its buffer number in the error message.

":function Name" lists the function with line numbers.  Makes it easier to
find out where an error happened.

In non-blockwise Visual mode, "r" replaces all selected characters with the
typed one, like in blockwise Visual mode.

When editing the last file in the argument list in any way, allow exiting.
Previously this was only possible when getting to that file with ":next" or

Added the '1' flag to 'formatoptions'. (Vit Stradal)
Added 'n' flag in 'formatoptions': format a numbered list.

Swap file:
- When a swap file already exists, and the user selects "Delete" at the
  ATTENTION prompt, use the same ".swp" swapfile, to avoid creating a ".swo"
  file which won't always be found.
- When giving the ATTENTION message and the date of the file is newer than the
  date of swap file, give a warning about this.
- Made the info for an existing swap file a bit shorter, so that it still fits
  on a 24 line screen.
- It was possible to make a symlink with the name of a swap file, linking to a
  file that doesn't exist.  Vim would then silently use another file (if open
  with O_EXCL refuses a symlink).  Now check for a symlink to exist.  Also do
  another check for an existing swap file just before creating it to catch a
  symlink attack.

The g CTRL-G command also works in Visual mode and counts the number of words.
(Chase Tingley)

Give an error message when using 'shell' and it's empty.

Added the possibility to include "%s" in 'shellpipe'.

Added "uhex" value for 'display': show non-printable characters as <xx>.
Show unprintable characters with NonText highlighting, also in the command

When asked to display the value of a hidden option, tell it's not supported.

- When dropping a shortcut on gvim (.lnk file) edit the target, not the
  shortcut itself.  (Yasuhiro Matsumoto)
- Added C versions of the OpenWithVim and SendToVim programs. (Walter Briscoe)
- When 'shell' is "cmd" or "cmd.exe", set 'shellredir' to redirect stderr too.
  Also check for the Unix shell names.
- When $HOMEDRIVE and $HOMEPATH are defined, use them to define $HOME.  (Craig

Win32 console version:
- Includes the user and system name in the ":version" message, when available.
  It generates a pathdef.c file for this.  (Jon Miner)
- Set the window icon to Vim's icon (only for Windows 2000).  While executing
  a shell command, modify the window title to show this.  When exiting,
  restore the cursor position too.  (Craig Barkhouse)
- The Win32 console version can be compiled with OLE support.  It can only
  function as a client, not as an OLE server.

- Let "%p" in 'errorformat' (column of error indicated by a row of characters)
  also accept a line of dots.
- Added "%v" item in 'errorformat': Virtual column number. (Dan Sharp)
- Added a default 'errorformat' value for VMS. (Jim Bush)

The "p" command can now be used in Visual mode.  It overwrites the selected
text with the contents of a register.

Highlight the <> items in the intro message to make clear they are special.

When using the "c" flag for ":substitute", allow typing "l" for replacing this
item and then stop: "last".

When printing a verbose message about sourcing another file, print the line

When resizing the Vim window, don't use 'equalalways'.  Avoids that making the
Vim window smaller makes split windows bigger.  And it's what the docs say.

When typing CTRL-D in Insert mode, just after an autoindent, then hitting CR
kept the remaining white space.  Now made it work like BS: delete the
autoindent to avoid a blank non-empty line results.

Added a GetHwnd() call to the OLE interface.  (Vince Negri)

Made ":normal" work in an event handler.  Useful when dropping a file on Vim
and for CursorHold autocommands.

For the MS-Windows version, don't change to the directory of the file when a
slash is used instead of a backslash.  Explorer should always use a backslash,
the user can use a slash when typing the command.

- When a buffer was changed outside of Vim and regaining focus, give a dialog
  to allow the user to reload the file.  Now also for other GUIs than
  MS-Windows.  And also used in the console, when compiled with dialog
- Inspect the file contents to find out if it really changed, ignore
  situations where only the time stamp changed (e.g., checking the file out
  from CVS).
- When checking the timestamp, first check if the file size changed, to avoid
  a file compare then.  Makes it quicker for large (log) files that are
  appended to.
- Don't give a warning for a changed or deleted file when 'buftype' is set.
- No longer warn for a changed directory.  This avoids that the file explorer
  produces warnings.
- Checking timestamps is only done for buffers that are not hidden.  These
  will be checked when they become unhidden.
- When checking for a file being changed outside of Vim, also check if the
  file permissions changed.  When the file contents didn't change but the
  permissions did, give a warning.
- Avoid checking too often, otherwise the dialog keeps popping up for a log
  file that steadily grows.

Mapping <M-A> when 'encoding' is "latin1" and then setting 'encoding' to
"utf-8" causes the first byte of a multi-byte to be mapped.  Can cause very
hard to find problems.  Disallow mapping part of a multi-byte character.

For ":python" and ":tcl" accept an in-line script. (Johannes Zellner)
Also for ":ruby" and ":perl". (Benoit Cerrina)

Made ":syn include" use 'runtimepath' when the file name is not a full path.

When 'switchbuf' contains "split" and the current window is empty, don't split
the window.

Unix: Catch SIGPWR to preserve files when the power is about to go down.

Sniff interface: (Anton Leherbauer)
- fixed windows code, esp. the event handling stuff
- adaptations for sniff 4.x ($SNIFF_DIR4)
- support for adding sniff requests at runtime

Support the notation <A-x> as an alias for <M-x>.  This logical, since the Alt
key is used.

":find" accepts a count, which means that the count'th match in 'path' is

":ls" and ":buffers" output shows modified/readonly/modifiable flag.  When a
buffer is active show "a" instead of nothing.  When a buffer isn't loaded
show nothing instead of "-".

Unix install:
- When installing the tools, set absolute paths in tools scripts efm_perl.pl
  and mve.awk.  Avoids that the user has to edit these files.
- Install Icons for KDE when the directories exist and the icons do not exist

Added has("win95"), to be able to distinguish between MS-Windows 95/98/ME and
NT/2000/XP in a Vim script.

When a ":cd" command was typed, echo the new current directory. (Dan Sharp)

When using ":winpos" before the GUI window has been opened, remember the
values until it is opened.

In the ":version" output, add "/dyn" for features that are dynamically loaded.
This indicates the feature may not always work.

On Windows NT it is possible that a directory is read-only, but a file can be
deleted.  When making a backup by renaming the file and 'backupdir' doesn't
use the current directory, this causes the original file to be deleted,
without the possibility to create a new file.  Give an extra error message
then to warn to user about this.

Made CTRL-R CTRL-O at the command line work like CTRL-R CTRL-R, so that it's
consistent with Insert mode.

COMPILE TIME CHANGES                                    compile-changes-6

All generated files have been moved out of the "src" directory.  This makes it
easy to see which files are not edited by hand.  The files generated by
configure are now in the "src/auto" directory.  For Unix, compiled object
files go in the objects directory.

The source archive was over the 1.4M floppy limit.  The archives are now split
up into two runtime and two source archives.  Also provide a bzip2 compressed
archive that contains all the sources and runtime files.

Added "reconfig" as a target for make.  Useful when changing some of the
arguments that require flushing the cache, such as switching from GTK to
Motif.  Adjusted the meaning of GUI_INC_LOC and GUI_LIB_LOC to be consistent
over different GUIs.

Added src/README.txt to give an overview of the main parts of the source code.

The Unix Makefile now fully supports using $(DESTDIR) to install to a specific
location.  Replaces the manual setting of *ENDLOC variables.

Added the possibility for a maintainer of a binary version to include his
e-mail address with the --with-compiledby configure argument.

Included features are now grouped in "tiny", "small", "normal", "big" and
"huge".  This replaces "min-features" and "max-features".  Using "tiny"
disables multiple windows for a really small Vim.

For the tiny version or when FEAT_WINDOWS is not defined: Firstwin and lastwin
are equal to curwin and don't use w_next and w_prev.

Added the +listcmds feature.  Can be used to compile without the Vim commands
that manipulate the buffer list and argument list (the buffer list itself is
still there, can't do without it).

Added the +vreplace feature.  It is disabled in the "small" version to avoid
that the 16 bit DOS version runs out of memory.

Removed GTK+ support for versions older than 1.1.16.

The configure checks for using PTYs have been improved.  Code taken from a
recent version of screen.

Added configure options to install Vim, Ex and View under another name (e.g.,
vim6, ex6 and view6).

Added "--with-global-runtime" configure argument.  Allows specifying the
global directory used in the 'runtimepath' default.

Made enabling the SNiFF+ interface possible with a configure argument.

Configure now always checks /usr/local/lib for libraries and
/usr/local/include for include files.  Helps finding the stuff for iconv() and

Moved the command line history stuff into the +cmdline_hist feature, to
exclude the command line history from the tiny version.

MS-Windows: Moved common functions from Win16 and Win32 to os_mswin.c.  Avoids
having to change two files for one problem.  (Vince Negri)

Moved common code from gui_w16.c and gui_w32.c to gui_w48.c (Vince Negri)

The jumplist is now a separate feature.  It is disabled for the "small"
version (16 bit MS-DOS).

Renamed all types ending in _t to end in _T.  Avoids potential problems with
system types.

Added a configure check for X11 header files that implicitly define the return
type to int. (Steve Wall)

"make doslang" in the top directory makes an archive with the menu and .mo
files for Windows.  This uses the files generated on Unix, these should work
on MS-Windows as well.

Merged a large part of os_vms.c with os_unix.c.  The code was duplicated in
the past which made maintenance more work.  (Zoltan Arpadffy)

Updated the Borland C version 5 Makefile: (Dan Sharp)
- Fixed the Perl build
- Added python and tcl builds
- Added dynamic perl and dynamic python builds
- Added uninstal.exe build
- Use "yes" and "no" for the options, like in Make_mvc.mak.

Win32: Merged Make_gvc.mak and Make_ovc.mak into one file: Make_ivc.mak.  It's
much smaller, many unnecessary text has been removed. (Walter Briscoe)
Added Make_dvc.mak to be able to debug exe generated with Make_mvc.mak in
MS-Devstudio. (Walter Briscoe)

MS-Windows: The big gvim.exe, which includes OLE, now also includes
dynamically loaded Tcl, Perl and Python.  This uses ActivePerl 5.6.1,
ActivePython 2.1.1 and ActiveTCL 8.3.3

Added AC_EXEEXT to configure.in, to check if the executable needs ".exe" for
Cygwin or MingW.  Renamed SUFFIX to EXEEXT in Makefile.

Win32: Load comdlg32.dll delayed for faster startup.  Only when using VC 6.
(Vipin Aravind)

Win32: When compiling with Borland, allow using IME. (Yasuhiro Matsumoto)

Win32: Added Makefile for Borland 5 to compile gvimext.dll. (Yasuhiro

BUG FIXES                                               bug-fixes-6

When checking the command name for "gvim", "ex", etc. ignore case.  Required
for systems where case is ignored in command names.

Search pattern "[a-c-e]" also matched a 'd' and didn't match a '-'.

When double-clicking in another window, wasn't recognized as double click,
because topline is different.  Added set_mouse_topline().

The BROKEN_LOCALE check was broken.  (Marcin Dalecki)

When "t_Co" is set, the default colors remain the same, thus wrong.  Reset the
colors after changing "t_Co". (Steve Wall)

When exiting with ":wqall" the messages about writing files could overwrite
each other and be lost forever.

When starting Vim with an extremely long file name (around 1024 characters) it
would crash.  Added a few checks to avoid buffer overflows.

CTRL-E could get stuck in a file with very long lines.

":au syntax<Tab>" expanded event names while it should expand groups starting
with "syntax".

When expanding a file name caused an error (e.g., for <amatch>) it was
produced even when inside an "if 0".

'cindent' formatted C comments differently from what the 'comments' option
specified. (Steve Wall)

Default for 'grepprg' didn't include the file name when only grepping in one
file.  Now /dev/null has been added for Unix.

Opening the option window twice caused trouble.  Now the cursor goes to the
existing option window.

":sview" and ":view" didn't set 'readonly' for an existing buffer.  Now do set
'readonly', unless the buffer is also edited in another window.

GTK GUI: When 'guioptions' excluded 'g', the more prompt caused the toolbar
and menubar to disappear and resize the window (which clears the text).
Now always grey-out the toplevel menus to avoid that the menubar changes size
or disappears.

When re-using the current buffer for a new buffer, buffer-local variables were
not deleted.

GUI: when 'scrolloff' is 0 dragging the mouse above the window didn't cause a
down scroll.  Now pass on a mouse event with mouse_row set to -1.

Win32: Console version didn't work on telnet, because of switching between two
console screens.  Now use one console screen and save/restore the contents
when needed.  (Craig Barkhouse)

When reading a file the magic number for encryption was included in the file
length. (Antonio Colombo)

The quickfix window contained leading whitespace and NULs for multi-line
messages. (David Harrison)

When using cscope, redundant tags were removed.  This caused a numbering
problem, because they were all listed.  Don't remove redundant cscope tags.
(David Bustos).

Cscope: Test for which matches are in the current buffer sometimes failed,
causing a jump to another match than selected. (David Bustos)

Win32: Buffer overflow when adding a charset name in a font.

'titlestring' and 'iconstring' were evaluating an expression in the current
context, which could be a user function, which is a problem for local
variables vs global variables.

Win32 GUI: Mapping <M-F> didn't work.  Now handle SHIFT and CTRL in

Win32 GUI: (on no file), :vs<CR>:q<CR> left a trail of pixels down the middle.
Could also happen for the ruler.  screen_puts() didn't clear the right char in
ScreenLines[] for the bold trick.

Win32: ":%!sort|uniq" didn't work, because the input file name touches the
"|".  Insert a space before the "|".

OS/2: Expanding wildcards included non-existing files.  Caused ":runtime" to
fail, which caused syntax highlighting to fail.

Pasting a register containing CTRL-R on the command line could cause an
endless loop that can't be interrupted.  Now it can be stopped with CTRL-C.

When 'verbose' is set, a message for file read/write could overwrite the
previous message.
When 'verbose' is set, the header from ":select" was put after the last
message.  Now start a new line.

The hit-enter prompt reacted to the response of the t_RV string, causing
messages at startup to disappear.

When t_Co was set to 1, colors were still used.  Now only use color when t_Co
> 1.

Listing functions with ":function" didn't quit when 'q' or ':' was typed at
the more prompt.

Use mkstemp() instead of mktemp() when it's available, avoids a warning for
linking on FreeBSD.

When doing Insert mode completion it's possible that b_sfname is NULL.  Don't
give it to printf() for the "Scanning" message.

":set runtimepath-=$VIMRUNTIME" didn't work, because expansion of wildcards
was done after trying to remove the string.  Now for ":set opt+=val" and ":set
opt-=val" the expansion of wildcards is done before adding or removing "val".

Using CTRL-V with the "r" command with a blockwise Visual selection inserted a
CTRL-V instead of getting a special character.

Unix: Changed the order of libraries: Put -lXdmcp after -lX11 and -lSM -lICE
after -lXdmcp.  Should fix link problem on HP-UX 10.20.

Don't remove the last "-lm" from the link line.  Vim may link but fail later
when the GUI starts.

When the shell returns with an error when trying to expand wildcards, do
include the pattern when the "EW_NOTFOUND" flag was set.
When expanding wildcards with the shell fails, give a clear error message
instead of just "1 returned".

Selecting a Visual block, with the start partly on a Tab, deleting it leaves
the cursor too far to the left.  Causes "s" to work in the wrong position.

Pound sign in normal.c caused trouble on some compilers.  Use 0xA3 instead.

Warning for changing a read-only file wasn't given when 'insertmode' was set.

Win32: When 'shellxquote' is set to a double quote (e.g., using csh), ":!start
notepad file" doesn't work.  Remove the double quotes added by 'shellxquote'
when using ":!start". (Pavol Juhas)

The "<f-args>" argument of ":command" didn't accept Tabs for white space.
Also, don't add an empty argument when there are trailing blanks.

":e test\\je" edited "test\je", but ":next test\\je" edited "testje".
Backslashes were removed one time too many for ":next".

VMS: "gf" didn't work properly.  Use vms_fixfilename() to translate the file
name. (Zoltan Arpadffy)

After ":hi Normal ctermbg=black ctermfg=white" and suspending Vim not all
characters are redrawn with the right background.

When doing "make test" without +eval or +windows feature, many tests failed.
Now have test1 generate a script to copy the correct output, so that a test
that doesn't work is skipped.

On FreeBSD the Perl interface added "-lc" to the link command and Python added
"-pthread".  These two don't work together, because the libc_r library should
be used.  Removed "-lc" from Perl, it should not be needed.
Also: Add "-pthread" to $LIBS, so that the checks for functions is done with
libc_r.  Sigaltstack() appears to be missing from libc_r.

The Syntax sub-menus were getting too long, reorganized them and added another
level for some languages.

Visual block "r"eplace didn't work well when a Tab is partly included.
(Matthias Kramm)

When yanking a Visual block, where some lines end halfway the block, putting
the text somewhere else doesn't insert a block.  Padd with spaces for missing
characters.  Added "y_width" to struct yankreg. (Matthias Kramm)

If a substitute string has a multibyte character after a backslash only the
first byte of it was skipped. (Muraoka Taro)

Win32: Numeric keypad keys were missing from the builtin termcap entry.

When a file was read-only ":wa!" didn't force it to be written. (Vince Negri)

Amiga: A file name starting with a colon was considered absolute but it isn't.
Amiga: ":pwd" added a slash when in the root of a drive.

Don't let 'ttymouse' default to "dec" when compiled with dec mouse support.
It breaks the gpm mouse (Linux console).

The prototypes for the Perl interface didn't work for threaded Perl.  Added a
sed command to remove the prototypes from proto/if_perl.pro and added them
manually to if_perl.xs.

When ":w!" resets the 'readonly' option the title and status lines were not

":args" showed the current file when the argument list was empty.  Made this
work like Vi: display nothing.

"99:<C-U>echo v:count" echoed "99" in Normal mode, but 0 in Visual mode.
Don't set v:count when executing a stuffed command.

Amiga: Got a requester for "home:" because it's in the default runtime path.
Don't bring up a requester when searching for a file in 'path', sourcing the
.vimrc file or using ":runtime".

Win16 and Win32: Considered a file "\path\file" absolute.  Can cause the same
file to appear as two different buffers.

Win32: Renaming a file to an empty string crashed Vim.  Happened when using
explorer.vim and hitting ESC at the rename prompt.

Win32: strftime() crashed when called with a "-1" value for the time.

Win32 with Borland compiler: mch_FullName() didn't work, caused tag file not
to be found.

Cscope sometimes jumped to the wrong tag. (David Bustos)

OS/2: Could not find the tags file.  mch_expand_wildcards() added another
slash to a directory name.

When using ">>" the `] mark was not in the last column.

When Vim was compiled without menu support, filetype.vim was still trying to
source the menu.vim script. (Rafael Garcia-Suarez)

":ptag" added an item to the tag stack.

Win32 IME: "gr" didn't use IME mode.

In the "vim --help" message the term "options" was used for arguments.  That's
confusing, call them "arguments".

When there are two windows, and a BufUnload autocommand for closing window #1
closed window #2, Vim would crash.

When there is a preview window and only one other window, ":q" wouldn't exit.

In Insert mode, when cancelling a digraph with ESC, the '?' wasn't removed.

On Unix glob(".*") returned "." and "..", on Windows it didn't.  On Windows
glob("*") also returned files starting with a dot.  Made this work like Unix
on all systems.

Win32: Removed old code to open a console.  Vimrun is now used and works fine.

Compute the room needed by the intro message accurately, so that it also fits
on a 25 line console. (Craig Barkhouse)

":ptnext" was broken.  Now remember the last tag used in the preview window
separately from the tagstack.

Didn't check for "-display" being the last argument. (Wichert Akkerman)

GTK GUI: When starting "gvim" under some conditions there would be an X error.
Don't replace the error handler when creating the xterm clipboard. (Wichert

Adding a space after a help tag caused the tag not to be found.  E.g., ":he
autoindent ".

Was trying to expand a URL into a full path name.  On Windows this resulted in
the current directory to be prepended to the URL.  Added vim_isAbsName() and
vim_FullName() to avoid that various machine specific functions do it

":n *.c" ":cd .." ":n" didn't use the original directory of the file.  Vi only
does it for the current file (looks like a bug).  Now remember the buffer used
for the entry in the argument list and use its name (adjusted when doing
":cd"), unless it's deleted.

When inserting a special key as its name ("<F8>" as four characters) after
moving around in Insert mode, undo didn't work properly.

Motif GUI: When using the right mouse button, for some people gvim froze for
a couple of seconds (Motif 1.2?).  This doesn't happen when there is no Popup
menu.  Solved by only creating a popup menu when 'mousemodel' is "popup" or
"popup_setpos". (David Harrison)

Motif: When adding many menu items, the "Help" menu disappeared but the
menubar didn't wrap.  Now manually set the menubar height.

When using <BS> in Insert mode to remove a line break, or using "J" to join
lines, the cursor could end up halfway a multi-byte character. (Muraoka Taro)

Removed defining SVR4 in configure.  It causes problems for some X header
files and doesn't appear to be used anywhere.

When 'wildignore' is used, 'ignorecase' for a tag match was not working.

When 'wildignore' contains "*~" it was impossible to edit a file ending in a
"~".  Now don't recognize a file ending in "~" as containing wildcards.

Disabled the mouse code for OS/2.  It was not really used.

":mksession" always used the full path name for a buffer, also when the short
name could be used.
":mkvimrc" and ":mksession" didn't save 'wildchar' and 'pastetoggle' in such a
way that they would be restored.  Now use the key name if possible, this is

After recovering a file and abandoning it, an ":edit" command didn't give the
ATTENTION prompt again.  Would be useful to be able to delete the file in an
easy way.  Reset the BF_RECOVERED flag when unloading the buffer.

histdel() could match or ignore case, depending on what happened before it.
Now always match case.

When a window size was specified when splitting a window, it would still get
the size from 'winheight' or 'winwidth' if it's larger.

When using "append" or "insert" inside a function definition, a line starting
with "function" or "endfunction" caused confusion.  Now recognize the commands
and skip lines until a ".".

At the end of any function or sourced file need_wait_return could be reset,
causing messages to disappear when redrawing.

When in a while loop the line number for error messages stayed fixed.  Now the
line number is remembered in the while loop.

"cd c:/" didn't work on MS-DOS.  mch_isdir() removed a trailing slash.

MS-Windows: getftime() didn't work when a directory had a trailing slash or
backslash.  Didn't show the time in the explorer because of this.

When doing wildcard completion, a directory "a/" sorted after "a-b".  Now
recognize path separators when sorting files.

Non-Unix systems: When editing "c:/dir/../file" and "c:/file" they were
created as different buffers, although it's the same file.  Expand to a full
file name also when an absolute name contains "..".

"g&" didn't repeat the last substitute properly.

When 'clipboard' was set to "unnamed", a "Y" command would not write to "0.
Now make a copy of register 0 to the clipboard register.

When the search pattern matches in many ways, it could not always be
interrupted with a CTRL-C.  And CTRL-C would have to be hit once for every
line when 'hlsearch' is on.
When 'incsearch' is on and interrupting the search for a match, don't abandon
the command line.

When turning a directory name into a full path, e.g., with fnamemodify(),
sometimes a slash was added.  Make this consistent: Don't add a slash.

When a file name contains a "!", using it in a shell command will cause
trouble: ":!cat %".  Escape the "!" to avoid that.  Escape it another time
when 'shell' contains "sh".

Completing a file name that has a tail that starts with a "~" didn't work:
":e view/~<Tab>".

Using a ":command" argument that contains < and > but not for a special
argument was not skipped properly.

The DOS install program: On Win2000 the check for a vim.exe or gvim.exe in
$PATH didn't work, it always found it in the current directory.
Rename the vim.exe in the current dir to avoid this. (Walter Briscoe)

In the MS-DOS/Windows install program, use %VIM% instead of an absolute path,
so that moving Vim requires only one change in the batch file.

Mac: mch_FullName() changed the "fname" argument and didn't always initialize
the buffer.

MS-DOS: mch_FullName() didn't fix forward/backward slashes in an absolute file

"echo expand("%:p:h")" with an empty file name removed one directory name on
MS-DOS.  For Unix, when the file name is a directory, the directory name was
removed.  Now make it consistent: "%:p" adds a path separator for all systems,
but no path separator is added in other situations.

Unix: When checking for a CTRL-C (could happen any time) and there is an X
event (e.g., clipboard updated) and there is typeahead, Vim would hang until a
character was typed.

MS-DOS, MS-Windows and Amiga: expanding "$ENV/foo" when $ENV ends in a colon,
had the slash removed.

":he \^=" gave an error for using \_.  ":he ^=" didn't find tag :set^=.  Even
"he :set^=" didn't find it.

A tags file name "D:/tags" was used as file "tags" in "D:".  That doesn't work
when the current path for D: isn't the root of the drive.

Removed calls to XtInitializeWidgetClass(), they shouldn't be necessary.

When using a dtterm or various other color terminals, and the Normal group has
been set to use a different background color, the background wouldn't always
be displayed with that color.  Added check for "ut" termcap entry: If it's
missing, clearing the screen won't give us the current background color.  Need
to draw each character instead.  Vim now also works when the "cl" (clear
screen) termcap entry is missing.

When repeating a "/" search command with a line offset, the "n" did use the
offset but didn't make the motion linewise.  Made "d/pat/+2" and "dn" do the

Win32: Trying to use ":tearoff" for a menu that doesn't exist caused a crash.

OpenPTY() didn't work on Sequent.  Add a configure check for getpseudotty().

C-indenting: Indented a line starting with ")" with the matching "(", but not
a line starting with "x)" looks strange.  Also compute the indent for aligning
with items inside the () and use the lowest indent.

MS-DOS and Windows: ":n *.vim" also matched files ending in "~".
Moved mch_expandpath() from os_win16.c and os_msdos.c to misc1.c, they are

Macintosh: (Dany St-Amant)
- In Vi-compatible mode didn't read files with CR line separators.
- Fixed a bug in the handling of Activate/Deactivate Event
- Fixed a bug in gui_mch_dialog (using wrong pointer)

Multibyte GDK XIM: While composing a multibyte-word, if user presses a
mouse button, then the word is removed.  It should remain and composing end.
(Sung-Hyun Nam)

MS-DOS, MS-Windows and OS/2: When reading from stdin, automatic CR-LF
conversion by the C library got in the way of detecting a "dos" 'fileformat'.

When 'smartcase' is set, patterns with "\S" would also make 'ignorecase'

When clicking the mouse in a column larger than 222, it moved to the first
column.  Can't encode a larger number in a character.  Now limit the number to
222, don't jump back to the first column.

GUI: In some versions CSI would cause trouble, either when typed directly or
when part of a multi-byte sequence.

When using multibyte characters in a ":normal" command, a trailing byte that
is CSI or K_SPECIAL caused problems.

Wildmenu didn't handle multi-byte characters.

":sleep 10" could not be interrupted on Windows, while "gs" could.  Made them
both work the same.

Unix: When waiting for a character is interrupted by an X-windows event (e.g.,
to obtain the contents of the selection), the wait time would not be honored.
A message could be overwritten quickly.  Now compute the remaining waiting

Windows: Completing "\\share\c$\S" inserted a backslash before the $ and then
the name is invalid.  Don't insert the backslash.

When doing an auto-write before ":make", IObuff was overwritten and the wrong
text displayed later.

On the Mac the directories "c:/tmp" and "c:/temp" were used in the defaults
for 'backupdir' and 'directory', they don't exist.

The check for a new file not to be on an MS-DOS filesystem created the file
temporarily, which can be slow.  Don't do this if there is another check for
the swap file being on an MS-DOS filesystem.

Don't give the "Changing a readonly file" warning when reading from stdin.

When using the "Save As" menu entry and not entering a file name, would get an
error message for the trailing ":edit #".  Now only do that when the
alternate file name was changed.

When Vim owns the X11 selection and is being suspended, an application that
tries to use the selection hangs.  When Vim continues it could no longer
obtain the selection.  Now give up the selection when suspending.

option.h and globals.h were included in some files, while they were already
included in vim.h.  Moved the definition of EXTERN to vim.h to avoid doing it

When repeating an operator that used a search pattern and the search pattern
contained characters that have a special meaning on the cmdline (e.g., CTRL-U)
it didn't work.

Fixed various problems with using K_SPECIAL (0x80) and CSI (0x9b) as a byte in
a (multibyte) character.  For example, the "r" command could not be repeated.

The DOS/Windows install program didn't always work from a directory with a
long filename, because $VIM and the executable name would not have the same

- Using an any-but character range [^x] in a regexp didn't work for UTF-8.
  (Muraoka Taro)
- When backspacing over inserted characters in Replace mode multi-byte
  characters were not handled correctly. (Muraoka Taro)
- Search commands "#" and "*" didn't work with multibyte characters. (Muraoka
- Word completion in Insert mode didn't work with multibyte characters.
  (Muraoka Taro)
- Athena/Motif GUI: when 'linespace' is non-zero the cursor would be drawn too
  wide (number of bytes instead of cell width).
- When changing 'encoding' to "euc-jp" and inserting a character Vim would
- For euc-jp characters positioning the cursor would sometimes be wrong.
  Also, with two characters with 0x8e leading byte only the first one would be
- When using DYNAMIC_ICONV on Win32 conversion might fail because of using the
  wrong error number. (Muraoka Taro)
- Using Alt-x in the GUI while 'encoding' was set to "utf-8" didn't produce
  the right character.
- When using Visual block selection and only the left halve of a double-wide
  character is selected, the highlighting continued to the end of the line.
- Visual-block delete didn't work properly when deleting the right halve of a
  double-wide character.
- Overstrike mode for the cmdline replaced only the first byte of a multibyte
- The cursor in Replace mode (also in the cmdline) was to small on a
  double-wide character.
- When a multibyte character contained a 0x80 byte, it didn't work (was using
  a CSI byte instead). (Muraoka Taro)
- Wordwise selection with the mouse didn't work.
- Yanking a modeless selection of multi-byte characters didn't work.
- When 'selection' is "exclusive", selecting a word that ends in a multi-byte
  character used wrong highlighting for the following character.

Win32 with Make_mvc.mak: Didn't compile for debugging. (Craig Barkhouse)

Win32 GUI: When "vimrun.exe" is used to execute an external command, don't
give a message box with the return value, it was already printed by vimrun.
Also avoid printing the return value of the shell when ":silent!" is used.

Win32: selecting a lot of text and using the "find/replace" dialog caused a

X11 GUI: When typing a character with the 8th bit set and the Meta/Alt
modifier, the modifier was removed without changing the character.

Truncating a message to make it fit on the command line, using "..." for the
middle, didn't always compute the space correctly.

Could not imap <C-@>.  Now it works like <Nul>.

- Fixed a few things for VAXC.  os_vms_fix.com had some strange CTRL-M
  characters. (Zoltan Arpadffy and John W. Hamill)
- Added VMS-specific defaults for the 'isfname' and 'isprint' options.
  (Zoltan Arpadffy)
- Removed os_vms_osdef.h, it's no longer used.

The gzip plugin used a ":normal" command, this doesn't work when dropping a
compressed file on Vim.

In very rare situations a binary search for a tag would fail, because an
uninitialized value happens to be half the size of the tag file. (Narendran)

When using BufEnter and BufLeave autocommands to enable/disable a menu, it
wasn't updated right away.

When doing a replace with the "c"onfirm flag, the cursor was positioned after
the ruler, instead of after the question.  With a long replacement string the
screen could scroll up and cause a "more" prompt.  Now the message is
truncated to make it fit.

Motif: The autoconf check for the Xp library didn't work.

When 'verbose' is set to list lines of a sourced file, defining a function
would reset the counter used for the "more" prompt.

In the Win32 find/replace dialog, a '/' character caused problems.  Escape it
with a backslash.

Starting a shell with ":sh" was different from starting a shell for CTRL-Z
when suspending doesn't work.  They now work the same way.

Jumping to a file mark while in a changed buffer gave a "mark not set" error.

":execute histget("cmd")" causes an endless loop and crashed Vim.  Now catch
all commands that cause too much recursiveness.

Removed "Failed to open input method" error message, too many people got this
when they didn't want to use a XIM.

GUI: When compiled without the +windows feature, the scrollbar would start
below line one.

Removed the trick with redefining character class functions from regexp.c.

Win32 GUI: Find dialog gives focus back to main window, when typing a
character mouse pointer is blanked, it didn't reappear when moving it in the
dialog window. (Vince Negri)

When recording and typing a CTRL-C, no character was recorded.  When in Insert
mode or cancelling half a command, playing back the recorded sequence wouldn't
work.  Now record the CTRL-C.

When the GUI was started, mouse codes for DEC and netterm were still checked

GUI: When scrolling and 'writedelay' is non-zero, the character under the
cursor was displayed in the wrong position (one line above/below with

A ":normal" command would reset the 'scrollbind' info.  Causes problems when
using a ":normal" command in an autocommand for opening a file.

Windows GUI: a point size with a dot, like "7.5", wasn't recognized. (Muraoka

When 'scrollbind' wasn't set would still remember the current position,
wasting time.

GTK: Crash when 'shell' doesn't exist and doing":!ls".  Use _exit() instead of
exit() when the child couldn't execute the shell.

- GUI with double-byte encoding: a mouse click in left halve of double-wide
  character put the cursor in previous char.
- Using double-byte encoding and 'selection' is "exclusive": "vey" and "^Vey"
  included the character after the word.
- When using a double-byte encoding and there is a lead byte at the end of the
  line, the preceding line would be displayed.  "ga" also showed wrong info.
- "gf" didn't include multi-byte characters before the cursor properly.
  (Muraoka Taro)

GUI: The cursor was sometimes not removed when scrolling.  Changed the policy
from redrawing the cursor after each call to gui_write() to only update it at
the end of update_screen() or when setting the cursor position.  Also only
update the scrollbars at the end of update_screen(), that's the only place
where the window text may have been scrolled.

Formatting "/*<Tab>long text", produced "* <Tab>" in the next line.  Now
remove the space before the Tab.
Formatting "/*<Tab>  long text", produced "* <Tab> long text" in the next
line.  Now keep the space after the Tab.

In some places non-ASCII alphabetical characters were accepted, which could
cause problems.  For example, ":X" (X being such a character).

When a pattern matches the end of the line, the last character in the line was
highlighted for 'hlsearch'.  That looks wrong for "/\%3c".  Now highlight the
character just after the line.

Motif: If a dialog was closed by clicking on the "X" of the window frame Vim
would no longer respond.

When using CTRL-X or CTRL-A on a number with many leading zeros, Vim would
crash. (Matsumoto)

When 'insertmode' is set, the mapping in mswin.vim for CTRL-V didn't work in
Select mode.  Insert mode wasn't restarted after overwriting the text.
Now allow nesting Insert mode with insert and change commands.  CTRL-O
cwfoo<Esc> now also works.

Clicking with the right mouse button in another window started Visual mode,
but used the start position of the current window.  Caused ml_get errors when
the line number was invalid.  Now stay in the same window.

When 'selection' is "exclusive", "gv" sometimes selected one character fewer.

When 'comments' contains more than one start/middle/end triplet, the optional
flags could be mixed up.  Also didn't align the end with the middle part.

Double-right-click in Visual mode didn't update the shown mode.

When the Normal group has a font name, it was never used when starting up.
Now use it when 'guifont' and 'guifontset' are empty.
Setting a font name to a highlight group before the GUI was started didn't

"make test" didn't use the name of the generated Vim executable.

'cindent' problems:
- Aligned with an "else" inside a do-while loop for a line below that loop.
  (Meikel Brandmeyer)
- A line before a function would be indented even when terminated with a
  semicolon. (Meikel Brandmeyer)
- 'cindent' gave too much indent to a line after a "};" that ends an array
- Support declaration lines ending in "," and "\".  (Meikel Brandmeyer)
- A case statement inside a do-while loop was used for indenting a line after
  the do-while loop. (Meikel Brandmeyer)
- When skipping a string in a line with one double quote it could continue in
  the previous line. (Meikel Brandmeyer)

When 'list' is set, 'hlsearch' didn't highlight a match at the end of the
line.  Now highlight the '$'.

The Paste menu item in the menu bar, the popup menu and the toolbar were all
different.  Now made them all equal to how it was done in mswin.vim.

st_dev can be smaller than "unsigned".  The compiler may give an overflow
warning.  Added a configure check for dev_t.

Athena: closing a confirm() dialog killed Vim.

Various typos in the documentation. (Matt Dunford)

Python interface: The definition of _DEBUG could cause trouble, undefine it.
The error message for not being able to load the shared library wasn't
translated.  (Muraoka Taro)

Mac: (Dany St-Amant and Axel Kielhorn)
- Several fixes.
- Vim was eating 80% of the CPU time.
- The project os_mac.pbxproj didn't work,  Moved it to a subdirectory.
- Made the menu priority work for the menubar.
- Fixed a problem with dragging the scrollbar.
- Cleaned up the various #ifdefs.

Unix: When catching a deadly signal and we keep getting one use _exit() to
exit in a quick and dirty way.

Athena menu ordering didn't work correctly. (David Harrison)

A ":make" or ":grep" command with a long argument could cause a crash.

Doing ":new file" and using "Quit" for the ATTENTION dialog still opened a new

GTK: When starting the GUI and there is an error in the .vimrc file, don't
present the wait-return prompt, since the message was given in the terminal.

When there was an error in a .vimrc file the terminal where gvim was started
could be cleared.  Set msg_row in main.c before writing any messages.

GTK and X11 GUI: When trying to read characters from the user (e.g. with
input()) before the Vim window was opened caused Vim to hang when it was
started from the desktop.

OS/390 uses 31 bit pointers.  That broke some computations with MAX_COL.
Reduce MAX_COL by one bit for OS/390. (Ralf Schandl)

When defining a function and it already exists, Vim didn't say it existed
until after typing it.  Now do this right away when typing it.

The message remembered for displaying later (keep_msg) was sometimes pointing
into a generic buffer, which might be changed by the time the message is
displayed.  Now make a copy of the message.

When using multi-byte characters in a menu and a trailing byte is a backslash,
the menu would not be created correctly.  (Muraoka Taro)
Using a multibyte character in the substitute string where a trail byte is a
backslash didn't work.  (Muraoka Taro)

When setting "t_Co" in a vimrc file, then setting it automatically from an
xterm termresponse and then setting it again manually caused a crash.

When getting the value of a string option that is not supported, the number
zero was returned.  This breaks a check like "&enc == "asdf".  Now an empty
string is returned for string options.

Crashed when starting the GTK GUI while using 'notitle' in the vimrc, setting
'title' in the gvimrc and starting the GUI with ":gui".  Closed the connection
to the X server accidentally.

Had to hit return after selecting an entry for ":ts".

The message from ":cn" message was sometimes cleared.  Now display it after
redrawing if it doesn't cause a scroll (truncated when necessary).

hangulin.c didn't compile when the GUI was disabled.  Disable it when it won't

When setting a termcap option like "t_CO", the value could be displayed as
being for a normal key with a modifier, like "<M-=>".

When expanding the argument list, entries which are a directory name did not
get included.  This stopped "vim c:/" from opening the file explorer.

":syn match sd "^" nextgroup=asdf" skipped the first column and matched the
nextgroup in the second column.

GUI: When 'lazyredraw' is set, 'showmatch' didn't work.  Required flushing
the output.

Don't define the <NetMouse> termcode in an xterm, reduces the problem when
someone types <Esc> } in Insert mode.

Made slash_adjust() work correctly for multi-byte characters. (Yasuhiro
Using a filename in Big5 encoding for autocommands didn't work (backslash in
trailbyte).  (Yasuhiro Matsumoto)

DOS and Windows: Expanding *.vim also matched file.vimfoo.  Expand path like
Unix to avoid problems with Windows dir functions.  Merged the DOS and Win32

Win32: Gvimext could not edit more than a few files at once, the length of the
argument was fixed.

"ls -1 * | xargs vim" worked, but the input was in cooked mode.  Now switch to
raw mode when needed.  Use dup() to copy the stderr file descriptor to stdin
to make shell commands work.  No longer requires an external program to do

When using ":filetype off", ftplugin and indent usage would be switched off at
the same time.  Don't do this, setting 'filetype' manually can still use them.

GUI: When writing a double-byte character, it could be split up in two calls
to gui_write(), which doesn't work.  Now flush before the output buffer
becomes full.

When 'laststatus' is set and 'cmdheight' is two or bigger, the intro message
would be written over the status line.
The ":intro" command didn't work when there wasn't enough room.

Configuring for Ruby failed with a recent version of Ruby. (Akinori Musha)

Athena: When deleting the directory in which Vim was started, using the file
browser made Vim exit.  Removed the use of XtAppError().

When using autoconf 2.50, UNIX was not defined.  Moved the comment for "#undef
UNIX" to a separate line.

Win32: Disabled _OnWindowPosChanging() to make maximize work better.

Win32: Compiling with VC 4.0 didn't work. (Walter Briscoe)

- Finally fixed the problems with deleting a menu. (David Harrison)
- Athena: When closing the confirm() dialog, worked like OK was pressed,
  instead of Cancel.

The file explorer didn't work in compatible mode, because of line

Didn't give an error message for ":digraph a".

When using Ex mode in the GUI and typing a special key, <BS> didn't delete it
correctly.  Now display '?' for a special key.

When an operator is pending, clicking in another window made it apply to that
window, even though the line numbers could be beyond the end of the buffer.

When a function call doesn't have a terminating ")" Vim could crash.

Perl interface: could crash on exit with perl 5.6.1. (Anduin Withers)

Using %P in 'errorformat' wasn't handled correctly. (Tomas Zellerin)

Using a syntax cluster that includes itself made Vim crash.

GUI: With 'ls' set to 2, dragging the status line all the way up, then making
the Vim window smaller: Could not the drag status line anymore.

"vim -c startinsert! file" placed cursor on last char of a line, instead of
after it.  A ":set" command in the buffer menu set w_set_curswant.  Now don't
do this when w_curswant is MAXCOL.

Win32: When the gvim window was maximized and selecting another font, the
window would no longer fill the screen.

The line with 'pastetoggle' in ":options" didn't show the right value when it
is a special key.  Hitting <CR> didn't work either.

Formatting text, resulting in a % landing in the first line, repeated the % in
the following lines, like it's the start of a comment.

GTK: When adding a toolbar item while gvim is already running, it wasn't
possible to use the tooltip.  Now it works by adding the tooltip first.

The output of "g CTRL-G" mentioned "Char" but it's actually bytes.

Searching for the end of a oneline region didn't work correctly when there is
an offset for the highlighting.

Syntax highlighting: When synchronizing on C-comments, //*/ was seen as the
start of a comment.

Win32: Without scrollbars present, the MS mouse scroll wheel didn't work.
Also handle the scrollbars when they are not visible.

Motif: When there is no right scrollbar, the bottom scrollbar would still
leave room for it.  (Marcin Dalecki)

When changing 'guicursor' and the value is invalid, some of the effects would
still take place.  Now first check for errors and only make the new value
effective when it's OK.

Using "A" In Visual block mode, appending to lines that don't extend into the
block, padding was wrong.

When pasting a block of text, a character that occupies more than one screen
column could be deleted and spaces inserted instead.  Now only do that with a

Fixed conversion of documentation to HTML using Perl. (Dan Sharp)

Give an error message when a menu name starts with a dot.

Avoid a hang when executing a shell from the GUI on HP-UX by pushing "ptem"
even when sys/ptem.h isn't present.

When creating the temp directory, make sure umask is 077, otherwise the
directory is not accessible when it was set to 0177.

Unix: When resizing the window and a redraw is a bit slow, could get a window
resize event while redrawing, resulting in a messed up window.  Any input
(e.g., a mouse click) would redraw.

The "%B" item in the status line became zero in Insert mode (that's normal)
for another than the current window.

The menu entries to convert to xxd and back didn't work in Insert mode.

When ":vglobal" didn't find a line where the pattern doesn't match, the error
message would be the wrong way around.

When ignoring a multi-line error message with "%-A", the continuation lines
would be used anyway. (Servatius Brandt)

"grx" on a double-wide character inserted "x", instead of replacing the
character with "x ".  "gR" on <xx> ('display' set the "uhex") didn't replace
at all.  When doing "gRxx" on a control character the first "x" would be
inserted, breaking the alignment.

Added "0)" to 'cinkeys', so that when typing a ) it is put in the same place
as where "==" would put it.

Win32: When maximized, adding/removing toolbar didn't resize the text area.

When using <C-RightMouse> a count was discarded.

When typing CTRL-V and <RightMouse> in the command line, would insert

Using "vis" or "vas" when 'selection' is exclusive didn't include the last

When adding to an option like 'grepprg', leading space would be lost.  Don't
expand environment variables when there is no comma separating the items.

GUI: When using a bold-italic font, would still use the bold trick and

Motif: The default button didn't work in dialogs, the first one was always
used.  Had to give input focus to the default button.

When using CTRL-T to jump within the same file, the '' mark wasn't set.

Undo wasn't Vi compatible when using the 'c' flag for ":s".  Now it undoes the
whole ":s" command instead of each confirmed replacement.

The Buffers menu, when torn-off, disappeared when being refreshed.  Add a
dummy item to avoid this.

Removed calling msg_start() in main(), it should not be needed.

vim_strpbrk() did not support multibyte characters. (Muraoka Taro)

The Amiga version didn't compile, the code was too big for relative jumps.
Moved a few files from ex_docmd.c to ex_cmds2.c

When evaluating the "= register resulted in the "= register being changed, Vim
would crash.

When doing ":view file" and it fails, the current buffer was made read-only.

Motif: For some people the separators in the toolbar disappeared when resizing
the Vim window. (Marcin Dalecki)

Win32 GUI: when setting 'lines' to a huge number, would not compute the
available space correctly.  Was counting the menu height twice.

Conversion of the docs to HTML didn't handle the line with the +quickfix tag
correctly. (Antonio Colombo)

Win32: fname_case() didn't handle multi-byte characters correctly. (Yasuhiro

The Cygwin version had trouble with fchdir().  Don't use that function for

The generic check in scripts.vim for "conf" syntax was done before some checks
in filetype.vim, resulting in "conf" syntax too often.

Dos32: Typing lagged behind.  Would wait for one biostick when checking if a
character is available.

GTK: When setting 'columns' while starting up "gvim", would set the width of
the terminal it was started in.

When using ESC in Insert mode, an autoindent that wraps to the next line
caused the cursor to move to the end of the line temporarily.  When the
character before the cursor was a double-wide multi-byte character the cursor
would be on the right halve, which causes problems with some terminals.

Didn't handle multi-byte characters correctly when expanding a file name.
(Yasuhiro Matsumoto)

Win32 GUI: Errors generated before the GUI is decided to start were not

globpath() didn't reserve enough room for concatenated results. (Anduin

When expanding an option that is very long already, don't do the expansion, it
would be truncated to MAXPATHL. (Anduin Withers)

When 'selection' is "exclusive", using "Fx" in Visual mode only moved until
just after the character.

When using IME on the console to enter a file name, the screen may scroll up.
Redraw the screen then. (Yasuhiro Matsumoto)

Motif: In the find/replace dialog the "Replace" button didn't work first time,
second time it replaced all matches.  Removed the use of ":s///c".
GTK: Similar problems with the find/replace dialog, moved the code to a common

X11: Use shared GC's for text. (Marcin Dalecki)

"]i" found the match under the cursor, instead of the first one below it.
Same for "]I", "] CTRL-I", "]d", "]D" and "] CTRL-D".

Win16: When maximized and the font is changed, don't change the window size.
(Vince Negri)

When 'lbr' is set, deleting a block of text could leave the cursor in the
wrong position.

Win32: When opening a file with the "Edit with Vim" popup menu entry,
wildcards would cause trouble.  Added the "--literal" argument to avoid
expanding file names.

When using "gv", it didn't restore that "$" was used in Visual block mode.

Win32 GUI: While waiting for a shell command to finish, the window wasn't
redrawn at all. (Yasuhiro Matsumoto)

Syntax highlighting: A match that continues on a next line because of a
contained region didn't end when that region ended.

The ":s" command didn't allow flags like 'e' and 'i' right after it.

When using ":s" to split a line, marks were moved to the next line.  Vi keeps
them in the first line.

When using ":n" ":rew", the previous context mark was at the top of the file,
while Vi puts it in the same place as the cursor.  Made it Vi compatible.

Fixed Vi incompatibility: Text was not put in register 1 when using "c" and
"d" with a motion character, when deleting within one line with one of the
commands: % ( ) `<character> / ? N n { }

Win32 GUI: The tooltip for tear-off items remained when the tear-off item was
no longer selected.

GUI: When typing ":" at the more prompt, would return to Normal mode and not
redraw the screen.

When starting Vim with an argument "-c g/at/p" the printed lines would
overwrite each other.

BeOS: Didn't compile.  Configure didn't add the os_beos files, the QNX check
removed them.  Various changes to os_beos.cc. (Joshua Haberman)
Removed the check for the hardware platform, the BeBox has not been produced
for a long time now.

Win32 GUI: don't use a message box when the shell returns an error code,
display the message in the Vim window.

Make_mvc.mak always included "/debug" for linking.  "GUI=no" argument didn't
work.  Use "DEBUG=yes" instead of "DEBUG=1" to make it consistent. (Dan Sharp)

When a line in the tags file ended in ;" (no TAB following) the command would
not be recognized as a search command.

X11: The inputMethod resource never worked.  Don't use the "none" input method
for SGI, it apparently makes the first character in Input method dropped.

Fixed incorrect tests in os_mac.h. (Axel Kielhorn)

Win32 console: When the console where Vim runs in is closed, Vim could hang in
trying to restore the window icon. (Yasuhiro Matsumoto)

When using ":3call func()" or ":3,3call func() the line number was ignored.

When 'showbreak' and 'linebreak' were both set, Visual highlighting sometimes
continued until the end of the line.

GTK GUI: Tearoff items were added even when 'guioptions' didn't contain 't'
when starting up.

MS-Windows: When the current directory includes a "~", searching files with
"gf" or ":find" didn't work.  A "$" in the directory had the same problem.
Added mch_has_exp_wildcard() functions.

When reducing the Vim window height while starting up, would get an
out-of-memory error message.

When editing a very long search pattern, 'incsearch' caused the redraw of the
command line to fail.

Motif GUI: On some systems the "Help" menu would not be on the far right, as
it should be.  On some other systems (esp. IRIX) the command line would not
completely show.  Solution is to only resize the menubar for Lesstif.

Using "%" in a line that contains "\\" twice didn't take care of the quotes
properly.  Now make a difference between \" and \\".

For non-Unix systems a dummy file is created when finding a swap name to
detect a 8.3 filesystem.  When there is an existing swap file, would get a
warning for the file being created outside of Vim.  Also, when closing the Vim
window the file would remain.

Motif: The menu height was always computed, using a "-menuheight" argument
was setting the room for the command line.  Now make clear the argument is not

For some (EBCDIC) systems, POUND was equal to '#'.  Added an #if for that to
avoid a duplicate case in a switch.

The GUI may have problems when forking.  Always call _exit() instead of exit()
in the parent, the child will call exit().

Win32 GUI: Accented characters were often wrong in dialogs and tearoff menus.
Now use CP_ACP instead of CP_OEMCP. (Vince Negri)

When displaying text with syntax highlighting causes an error (e.g., running
out of stack) the syntax highlighting is disabled to avoid further messages.

When a command in a .vimrc or .gvimrc causes an ATTENTION prompt, and Vim was
started from the desktop (no place to display messages) it would hang.  Now
open the GUI window early to be able to display the messages and pop up the

"r<CR>" on a multi-byte character deleted only the first byte of the
character.  "3r<CR>" deleted three bytes instead of three characters.

When interrupting reading a file, Vi considers the buffer modified.  Added the
'i' flag in 'cpoptions' flag for this (we don't want it modified to be able to
do ":q").

When using an item in 'guicursor' that starts with a colon, Vim would get
stuck or crash.

When putting a file mark in a help file and later jumping back to it, the
options would not be set.  Extended the modeline in all help files to make
this work better.

When a modeline contained "::" the local option values would be printed.  Now
ignore it.

Some help files did not use a 8.3 names, which causes problems when using
MS-DOS unzip.  Renamed "multibyte.txt" to "mbyte.txt", "rightleft.txt" to
"rileft.txt", "tagsearch.txt" to "tagsrch.txt", "os_riscos.txt" to

When Visual mode is blockwise, using "iw" or "aw" made it characterwise.  That
doesn't seem right, only do this when in linewise mode.  But then do it
always, not only when start and end of Visual mode are equal.

When using "viw" on a single-letter word and 'selection' is exclusive, would
not include the word.

When formatting text from Insert mode, using CTRL-O, could mess up undo

While writing a file (also for the backup file) there was no check for an
interrupt (hitting CTRL-C).  Vim could hang when writing a large file over a
slow network, and moving the mouse didn't make it appear (when 'mousehide' is
set) and the screen wasn't updated in the GUI.  Also allow interrupting when
syncing the swap file, it can take a long time.

When using ":mksession" while there is help window, it would later be restored
to the right file but not marked as a help buffer.  ":help" would then open
another window.  Now use the value "help" for 'buftype' to mark a help buffer.

The session file contained absolute path names in option values, that doesn't
work when the home directory depends on the situation.  Replace the home
directory with ~/ when possible.

When using 'showbreak' a TAB just after the shown break would not be counted
correctly, the cursor would be positioned wrong.

With 'showbreak' set to "--->" or "------->" and 'sts' set to 4, inserting
tabs did not work right.  Could cause a crash.  Backspacing was also wrong,
could get stuck at a line break.

Win32: crashed when tearing off a menu with over 300 items.

GUI: A menu or toolbar item would appear when only a tooltip was defined for

When 'scrolloff' is non-zero and "$" is in 'cpoptions', using "s" while the
last line of the file is the first line on screen, the text wasn't displayed.

When running "autoconf", delete the configure cache to force starting cleanly
when configure is run again.

When changing the Normal colors for cterm, the value of 'background' was
changed even when the GUI was used.

The warning for a missing vimrun.exe was always given on startup, but some
people just editing a file don't need to be bothered by it.  Only show it when
vimrun would be used.

When using "%" in a multibyte text it could get confused by trailbytes that
match. (Muraoka Taro)

Termcap entry for RiscOS was wrong, using 7 and 8 in octal codes.

Athena: The title of a dialog window and the file selector window were not
set. (David Harrison)

The "htmlLink" highlight group specified colors, which gives problems when
using a color scheme.  Added the "Underlined" highlight group for this.

After using ":insert" or ":change" the '[ mark would be one line too low.

When looking for the file name after a match with 'include' one character was
skipped.  Same for 'define'.

Win32 and DJGPP: When editing a file with a short name in a directory, and
editing the same file but using the long name, would end up with two buffers
on the same file.

"gf" on a filename that starts with "../" only worked when the file being
edited is in the current directory.  An include file search didn't work
properly for files starting with "../" or ".".  Now search both relative to
the file and to the current directory.

When 'printheader', 'titlestring', 'iconstring', 'rulerformat' or 'statusline'
contained "%{" but no following "}" memory was corrupted and a crash could

":0append" and then inserting two lines did not redraw the blank lines that
were scrolled back down.

When using insert mode completion in a narrow window, the message caused a
scroll up.  Now shorten the message if it doesn't fit and avoid writing the
ruler over the message.

XIM still didn't work correctly on some systems, especially SGI/IRIX.  Added
the 'imdisable' option, which is set by default for that system.

Patch 6.0aw.008
Problem:    When the first character of a file name is over 127, the Buffers
            menu entry would get a negative priority and cause problems.

length of a multi-byte string.  Use the maximum length then. (Yasuhiro

Patch 6.0ax.001
Problem:    When 'patchmode' is set, appending to a file gives an empty
            original file. (Ed Ralston)
Solution:   Also make a backup copy when appending and 'patchmode' is set.
Files:      src/fileio.c

Patch 6.0ax.002
Problem:    When 'patchmode' is set, appending to a compressed file gives an
            uncompressed original file. (Ed Ralston)
Solution:   Create the original file before decompressing.
Files:      runtime/plugin/gzip.vim

Patch 6.0ax.005
Problem:    Athena file selector keeps the title of the first invocation.
Solution:   Set the title each time the file selector is opened. (David
Files:      src/gui_at_fs.c

Patch 6.0ax.007
Problem:    When using GPM (mouse driver in a Linux console) a double click is
            interpreted as a scroll wheel click.
Solution:   Check if GPM is being used when deciding if a mouse event is for
            the scroll wheel.
Files:      src/term.c

Patch 6.0ax.010
Problem:    The Edit.Save menu and the Save toolbar button didn't work when
            the buffer has no file name.
Solution:   Use a file browser to ask for a file name.  Also fix the toolbar
            Find item in Visual mode.
Files:      runtime/menu.vim

Patch 6.0ax.012
Problem:    When 'cpoptions' contains "$", breaking a line for 'textwidth'
            doesn't redraw properly. (Stefan Schulze)
Solution:   Remove the dollar before breaking the line.
Files:      src/edit.c

Patch 6.0ax.014
Problem:    Win32: On Windows 98 ":make -f file" doesn't work when 'shell' is
            "command.com" and 'makeprg' is "nmake".  The environment isn't
            passed on to "nmake".
Solution:   Also use vimrun.exe when redirecting the output of a command.
Files:      src/os_win32.c

Patch 6.0ax.016
Problem:    The version number was reported wrong in the intro screen.
Solution:   Check for a version number with two additional letters.
Files:      src/version.c

Patch 6.0ax.019
Problem:    When scrolling a window with folds upwards, switching to another
            vertically split window and back may not update the scrollbar.
Solution:   Limit w_botline to the number of lines in the buffer plus one.

The license text was updated to make the meaning clearer and make it
compatible with the GNU GPL.  Otherwise distributors have a problem when
linking Vim with a GPL'ed library.

When installing the "less.sh" script it was not made executable. (Chuck Berg)

Win32: The "9" key on the numpad wasn't working. (Julian Kinraid)

The NSIS install script didn't work with NSIS 1.80 or later.  Also add
Vim-specific icons. (Pruchnik)

The script for conversion to HTML contained an "if" in the wrong place.
(Michael Geddes)

Allow using ":ascii" in the sandbox, it's harmless.

Removed creat() from osdef2.h.in, it wasn't used and may cause a problem when
it's redefined to creat64().

The text files in the VisVim directory were in "dos" format.  This caused
problems when applying a patch.  Now keep them in "unix" format and convert
them to "dos" format only for the PC archives.

Add ruby files to the dos source archive, they can be used by Make_mvc.mak.
(Mirek Pruchnik)

"cp -f" doesn't work on all systems.  Change "cp -f" in the Makefile to "rm
-f" and "cp".

Didn't compile on a Compaq Tandem Himalaya OSS. (Michael A. Benzinger)

The GTK file selection dialog didn't include the "Create Dir", "Delete File"
and "Rename File" buttons.

When doing ":browse source" the dialog has the title "Run Macro".  Better
would be "Source Vim script". (Yegappan Lakshmanan)

Win32: Don't use the printer font as default for the font dialog.

"make doslang" didn't work when configure didn't run (yet).  Set $MAKEMO to
"yes". (Mirek Pruchnik)

The ToolBar TagJump item used "g]", which prompts for a selection even when
there is only one matching tag.  Use "g<C-]>" instead.

The ming makefile for message translations didn't have the right list of

The MS-Windows 3.1 version complains about LIBINTL.DLL not found.  Compile
this version without message translations.

The Borland 5 makefile contained a check for Ruby which is no longer needed.
The URLs for the TCL library was outdated. (Dan Sharp)

The eviso.ps file was missing from the DOS runtime archive, it's needed for
printing PostScript in the 32bit DOS version.

In menu files ":scriptencoding" was used in a wrong way after patch 6.1a.032
Now use ":scriptencoding" in the file where the translations are given.  Do
the same for all menus in latin1 encoding.

Included a lot of fixes for the Macintosh, mostly to make it work with Carbon.
(Dany StAmant, Axel Kielhorn, Benji Fisher)

Improved the vimtutor shell script to use $TMPDIR when it exists, and delete
the copied file when exiting in an abnormal way. (Max Ischenko)

When "iconv.dll" can't be found, try using "libiconv.dll".

When encryption is used, filtering with a shell command wasn't possible.

DJGPP: ":cd c:" always failed, can't get permissions for "c:".
Win32: ":cd c:/" failed if the previous current directory on c: had become

DJGPP: Shift-Del and Del both produce \316\123.  Default mapping for Del is
wrong.  Disabled it.

Dependencies on header files in MingW makefile was wrong.

Win32: Don't use ACL stuff for MSVC 4.2, it's not supported. (Walter Briscoe)

Win32 with Borland: bcc.cfg was caching the value for $(BOR), but providing a
different argument to make didn't regenerate it.

Win32 with MSVC: Make_ivc.mak generates a new if_ole.h in a different
directory, the if_ole.h in the src directory may be used instead.  Delete the
distributed file.

When a window is vertically split and then ":ball" is used, the window layout
is messed up, can cause a crash. (Muraoka Taro)

When 'insertmode' is set, using File/New menu and then double clicking, "i" is
soon inserted. (Merlin Hansen)

When Select mode is active and using the Buffers menu to switch to another
buffer, an old selection comes back.  Reset VIsual_reselect for a ":buffer"

When Select mode is active and 'insertmode' is set, using the Buffers menu to
switch to another buffer, did not return to Insert mode.  Make sure
"restart_edit" is set.

When double clicking on the first character of a word while 'selection' is
"exclusive" didn't select that word.

Patch 6.0.001
Problem:    Loading the sh.vim syntax file causes error messages. (Corinna
Solution:   Add an "if". (Charles Campbell)
Files:      runtime/syntax/sh.vim

Patch 6.0.002
Problem:    Using a '@' item in 'viminfo' doesn't work. (Marko Leipert)
Solution:   Add '@' to the list of accepted items.
Files:      src/option.c

Patch 6.0.003
Problem:    The configure check for ACLs on AIX doesn't work.
Solution:   Fix the test program so that it compiles. (Tomas Ogren)
Files:      src/configure.in, src/auto/configure

Patch 6.0.004
Problem:    The find/replace dialog doesn't reuse a previous argument
Solution:   After removing a "\V" terminate the string. (Zwane Mwaikambo)
Files:      src/gui.c

Patch 6.0.005
Problem:    In Insert mode, "CTRL-O :ls" has a delay before redrawing.
Solution:   Don't delay just after wait_return() was called.  Added the
            did_wait_return flag.
Files:      src/globals.h, src/message.c, src/normal.c, src/screen.c

Patch 6.0.006
Problem:    With a vertical split, 'number' set and 'scrolloff' non-zero,
            making the window width very small causes a crash. (Niklas
Solution:   Check for a zero width.
Files:      src/move.c

Patch 6.0.007
Problem:    When setting 'filetype' while there is no FileType autocommand, a
            following ":setfiletype" would set 'filetype' again. (Kobus
Solution:   Set did_filetype always when 'filetype' has been set.
Files:      src/option.c

Patch 6.0.008
Problem:    'imdisable' is missing from the options window. (Michael Naumann)
Solution:   Add an entry for it.
Files:      runtime/optwin.vim

Patch 6.0.009
Problem:    Nextstep doesn't have S_ISBLK. (John Beppu)
Solution:   Define S_ISBLK using S_IFBLK.
Files:      src/os_unix.h

Patch 6.0.010
Problem:    Using "gf" on a file name starting with "./" or "../" in a buffer
            without a name causes a crash. (Roy Lewis)
Solution:   Check for a NULL file name.
Files:      src/misc2.c

Patch 6.0.011
Problem:    Python: After replacing or deleting lines get an ml_get error.
            (Leo Lipelis)
Solution:   Adjust the cursor position for deleted or added lines.
Files:      src/if_python.c

Files:      src/charset.c

Patch 6.0.020
Problem:    When obtaining the value of a global variable internally, could
            get the function-local value instead.  Applies to using <Leader>
            and <LocalLeader> and resetting highlighting in a function.
Solution:   Prepend "g:" to the variable name. (Aric Blumer)
Files:      src/syntax.c, src/term.c

Patch 6.0.021
Problem:    The 'cscopepathcomp' option didn't work.

Problem:    GTK: When using arrow keys to navigate through the menus, the
            separators are selected.
Solution:   Set the separators "insensitive". (Pavel Kankovsky)
Files:      src/gui_gtk.c, src/gui_gtk_x11.c

Patch 6.0.027
Problem:    VMS: Printing doesn't work, the file is deleted too quickly.
            No longer need the VMS specific printing menu.
            gethostname() is not available with VAXC.
            The makefile was lacking selection of the tiny-huge feature set.

Patch 6.0.029
Problem:    When making a change in line 1, then in line 2 and then deleting
            line 1, undo info could be wrong.  Only when the changes are undone
            at once. (Gerhard Hochholzer)
Solution:   When not saving a line for undo because it was already done
            before, remember for which entry the last line must be computed.
            Added ue_getbot_entry pointer for this.  When the number of lines
            changes, adjust the position of newer undo entries.
Files:      src/structs.h, src/undo.c

Patch 6.0.030
Problem:    Using ":source! file" doesn't work inside a loop or after
            ":argdo". (Pavol Juhas)
Solution:   Execute the commands in the file right away, do not let the main
            loop do it.

Files:      src/eval.c

Patch 6.0.035
Problem:    The menu item Edit/Global_Settings/Toggle_Toolbar doesn't work
            when 'ignorecase' is set. (Allen Castaban)
Solution:   Always match case when checking if a flag is already present in
Files:      runtime/menu.vim

Patch 6.0.036
Problem:    OS/2, MS-DOS and MS-Windows: Using a path that starts with a
            slash in 'tags' doesn't work as expected. (Mathias Koehrer)

Files:      src/misc2.c

Patch 6.0.037
Problem:    When the user has set "did_install_syntax_menu" to avoid the
            default Syntax menu it still appears. (Virgilio)

            is set.
Files:      runtime/menu.vim

Patch 6.0.038
Problem:    When 'selection' is "exclusive", deleting a block of text at the
            end of a line can leave the cursor beyond the end of the line.
Solution:   Correct the cursor position.
Files:      src/ops.c

Patch 6.0.039
Problem:    "gP" leaves the cursor in the wrong position when 'virtualedit' is
            used.  Using "c" in blockwise Visual mode leaves the cursor in a
            strange position.
Solution:   For "gP" reset the "coladd" field for the '] mark.  For "c" leave
            the cursor on the last inserted character.
Files:      src/ops.c

Files:      src/ex_docmd.c

Patch 6.0.043
Problem:    Patch 6.0.041 was wrong.
Solution:   Use mch_getenv() instead of vim_getenv().
Files:      src/ex_cmds2.c

Patch 6.0.044
Problem:    Using a "containedin" list for a syntax item doesn't work for an
            item that doesn't have a "contains" argument.  Also, "containedin"
            doesn't ignore a transparent item. (Timo Frenay)
Solution:   When there is a "containedin" argument somewhere, always check for
            contained items.  Don't check for the transparent item but the
            item it's contained in.
Files:      src/structs.h, src/syntax.c

Solution:   Don't allow nested atoms inside "\%[]".
Files:      src/regexp.c

Patch 6.0.048
Problem:    Win32: In the console the mouse doesn't always work correctly.
            Sometimes after getting focus a mouse movement is interpreted like
            a button click.
Solution:   Use a different function to obtain the number of mouse buttons.
            Avoid recognizing a button press from undefined bits. (Vince Negri)
Files:      src/os_win32.c

Patch 6.0.049
Problem:    When using evim the intro screen is misleading. (Adrian Nagle)
Solution:   Mention whether 'insertmode' is set and the menus to be used.

Solution:   Use dec_cursor() instead of decrementing the column number.
Files:      src/search.c

Files:      src/auto/configure, src/configure.in

Patch 6.0.053 (extra)
Problem:    Various problems with QNX.
Solution:   Minor fix for configure.  Switch on terminal clipboard support in
            main.c.  Fix "pterm" mouse support.  os_qnx.c didn't build without
            photon. (Julian Kinraid)

            src/main.c, src/misc2.c, src/option.h, src/os_qnx.c, src/os_qnx.h,

Patch 6.0.054
Problem:    When using mswin.vim, CTRL-V pastes a block of text like it is
            normal text.  Using CTRL-V in blockwise Visual mode leaves "x"
            characters behind.
Solution:   Make CTRL-V work as it should.  Do the same for the Paste menu
Files:      runtime/menu.vim, runtime/mswin.vim

Files:      src/gui_gtk_x11.c

Patch 6.0.056
Problem:    Using "CTRL-O cw" in Insert mode results in a nested Insert mode.
            <Esc> doesn't leave Insert mode then.
Solution:   Only use nested Insert mode when 'insertmode' is set or when a
            mapping is used.
Files:      src/normal.c

Patch 6.0.057
Problem:    Using ":wincmd g}" in a function doesn't work.  (Gary Holloway)
Solution:   Execute the command directly, instead of putting it in the
            typeahead buffer.
Files:      src/normal.c, src/proto/normal.pro, src/window.c

Patch 6.0.058
Problem:    When a Cursorhold autocommand moved the cursor, the ruler wasn't

Patch 6.0.063
Problem:    When 'cpoptions' includes "$", using "cw" to type a ')' on top of
            the "$" doesn't update syntax highlighting after it.
Solution:   Stop displaying the "$" when typing a ')' in its position.
Files:      src/search.c

Patch 6.0.064 (extra)
Problem:    The NSIS install script doesn't work with newer versions of NSIS.
            The diff feature doesn't work when there isn't a good diff.exe on
            the system.
Solution:   Replace the GetParentDir instruction by a user function.
            Fix a few cosmetic problems.  Use defined constants for the
            version number, so that it's defined in one place only.
            Only accept the install directory when it ends in "vim".
            (Eduardo Fernandez)
            Add a diff.exe and use it from the default _vimrc.

Solution:   Fix the wrong entries. (David Harrison)
Files:      src/term.c

Patch 6.0.072
Problem:    When 'lazyredraw' is set, a mapping that stops Visual mode, moves

Solution:   Add a check for a read-only file before renaming the file to
            become the backup.
Files:      src/fileio.c

Patch 6.0.080
Problem:    When using a session file that has the same file in two windows,
            the fileinfo() call in do_ecmd() causes a scroll and a hit-enter
            prompt. (Robert Webb)
Solution:   Don't scroll this message when 'shortmess' contains 'O'.
Files:      src/ex_cmds.c

Solution:   Add the composing characters to the redo buffer.
Files:      src/normal.c

Patch 6.0.085
Problem:    When 'mousefocus' is set, using "s" to go to Insert mode and then
            moving the mouse pointer to another window stops Insert mode,

Problem:    Message translations are incorrect, which may cause a crash.
            (Peter Figura)
            The Turkish translations needed more work and the maintainer
            didn't have time.
Solution:   Fix order of printf arguments.  Remove %2$d constructs.
            Add "-v" to msgfmt to get a warning for wrong translations.

Patch 6.0.090
Problem:    When a wrapping line does not fit in a window and 'scrolloff' is
            bigger than half the window height, moving the cursor left or
            right causes the screen to flash badly. (Lubomir Host)
Solution:   When there is not enough room to show 'scrolloff' screen lines and
            near the end of the line, show the end of the line.
Files:      src/move.c

Patch 6.0.091
Problem:    Using CTRL-O in Insert mode, while 'virtualedit' is "all" and the

Patch 6.0.094
Problem:    Athena: When clicking in the horizontal scrollbar Vim crashes.
            (Paul Ackersviller)
Solution:   Use the thumb size instead of the window pointer of the scrollbar
            (which is NULL). (David Harrison)
            Also avoid that scrolling goes the wrong way in a narrow window.

            binding. (Dany StAmant)
Files:      src/normal.c

Patch 6.0.104
Problem:    Multi-byte: When '$' is in 'cpoptions', typing a double-wide
            character that overwrites the left halve of an old double-wide
            character causes a redraw problem and the cursor stops blinking.
Solution:   Clear the right half of the old character. (Yasuhiro Matsumoto)
Files:      src/edit.c, src/screen.c

Patch 6.0.105
Problem:    Multi-byte: In a window of one column wide, with syntax
            highlighting enabled a crash might happen.

Patch 6.0.108
Problem:    When using folding could try displaying line zero, resulting in an
            error for a NULL pointer.
Solution:   Stop decrementing w_topline when the first line of a window is in
            a closed fold.
Files:      src/window.c

Patch 6.0.109
Problem:    XIM: When the input method is enabled, repeating an insertion with

            stuff buffer.
Files:      src/ui.c

Patch 6.0.110
Problem:    Using undo after executing "OxjAxkdd" from a register in
            an empty buffer gives an error message.  (Gerhard Hochholzer)
Solution:   Don't adjust the bottom line number of an undo block when it's
            zero.  Add a test for this problem.

Patch 6.0.118
Problem:    When $TMPDIR is a relative path, the temp directory is missing a
            trailing slash and isn't deleted when Vim exits. (Peter Holm)
Solution:   Add the slash after expanding the directory to an absolute path.
Files:      src/fileio.c

Patch 6.0.119 (depends on patch 6.0.116)

Solution:   Move "&&" to other lines. (Vince Negri)
Files:      src/eval.c

Patch 6.0.124
Problem:    When using a ":substitute" command that starts with "\="
            (evaluated as an expression), "~" was still replaced with the
            previous substitute string.
Solution:   Skip the replacement when the substitute string starts with "\=".
            Also adjust the documentation about doubling backslashes.
Files:      src/ex_cmds.c, runtime/doc/change.txt

Patch 6.0.125 (extra)
Problem:    Win32: When using the multi_byte_ime feature pressing the shift
            key would be handled as if a character was entered, thus mappings
            with a shifted key didn't work. (Charles Campbell)
Solution:   Ignore pressing the shift, control and alt keys.
Files:      src/os_win32.c

Patch 6.0.126
Problem:    The python library was always statically linked.
Solution:   Link the python library dynamically. (Matthias Klose)
Files:      src/auto/configure, src/configure.in

Patch 6.0.127
Problem:    When using a terminal that swaps screens and the Normal background
            color has a different background, using an external command may
            cause the color of the wrong screen to be changed. (Mark Waggoner)
Solution:   Don't call screen_stop_highlight() in stoptermcap().
Files:      src/term.c

Patch 6.0.128
Problem:    When moving a vertically split window to the far left or right,
            the scrollbars are not adjusted. (Scott E Lee)  When 'mousefocus'
            is set the mouse pointer wasn't adjusted.
Solution:   Adjust the scrollbars and the mouse pointer.
Files:      src/window.c

Patch 6.0.129
Problem:    When using a very long file name, ":ls" (repeated a few times)
            causes a crash.  Test with "vim `perl -e 'print "A"x1000'`".
Solution:   Terminate a string before getting its length in buflist_list().
Files:      src/buffer.c

Patch 6.0.130

            (Yegappan Lakshmanan)
Solution:   When redrawing the topline don't scroll twice.
Files:      src/screen.c

Patch 6.0.131
Problem:    When using bufname() and there are two matches for listed buffers
            and one match for an unlisted buffer, the unlisted buffer is used.
            (Aric Blumer)
Solution:   When there is a match with a listed buffer, don't check for
            unlisted buffers.
Files:      src/buffer.c

Patch 6.0.132
Problem:    When setting 'iminsert' in the vimrc and using an xterm with two

Files:      src/option.c

Patch 6.0.133
Problem:    When opening another buffer while 'keymap' is set and 'iminsert'
            is zero, 'iminsert' is set to one unexpectedly. (Igor Goldenberg)
Solution:   Don't set 'iminsert' as a side effect of defining a ":lmap"
            mapping.  Only do that when 'keymap' is set.
Files:      src/getchar.c, src/option.c

Patch 6.0.134
Problem:    When completing ":set tags=" a path with an embedded space causes
            the completion to stop. (Sektor van Skijlen)
Solution:   Escape spaces with backslashes, like for ":set path=".  Also take
            backslashes into account when searching for the start of the path
            to complete (e.g., for 'backupdir' and 'cscopeprg').

Patch 6.0.135
Problem:    Menus that are not supposed to do anything used "<Nul>", which
            still produced an error beep.
            When CTRL-O is mapped for Insert mode, ":amenu" commands didn't
            work in Insert mode.
            Menu language falls back to English when $LANG ends in "@euro".
Solution:   Use "<Nop>" for a menu item that doesn't do anything, just like
            Use ":anoremenu" instead of ":amenu".
            Ignore "@euro" in the locale name.
Files:      runtime/makemenu.vim, runtime/menu.vim, src/menu.c

Patch 6.0.136
Problem:    When completing in Insert mode, a mapping could be unexpectedly

Patch 6.0.137
Problem:    GUI: When using the find or find/replace dialog from Insert mode,
            the input mode is stopped.

            have focus.
Files:      src/ui.c

Patch 6.0.138
Problem:    GUI: When using the find or find/replace dialog from Insert mode,
            the text is inserted when CTRL-O is mapped. (Andre Pang)
            When opening the dialog again, a whole word search isn't
            When doing "replace all" a whole word search was never done.
Solution:   Don't put a search or replace command in the input buffer,
            execute it directly.
            Recognize "\<" and "\>" after removing "\V".
            Add "\<" and "\>" also for "replace all".
Files:      src/gui.c

Patch 6.0.139
Problem:    When stopping 'wildmenu' completion, the statusline of the
            bottom-left vertically split window isn't redrawn. (Yegappan
Solution:   Redraw all the bottom statuslines.

Patch 6.0.140
Problem:    Memory allocated for local mappings and abbreviations is leaked
            when the buffer is wiped out.
Solution:   Clear the local mappings when deleting a buffer.
Files:      src/buffer.c, src/getchar.c, src/proto/getchar.pro, src/vim.h

Patch 6.0.141
Problem:    When using ":enew" in an empty buffer, some buffer-local things
            are not cleared.  b:keymap_name is not set.
Solution:   Clear user commands and mappings local to the buffer when re-using
            the current buffer.  Reload the keymap.
Files:      src/buffer.c

Patch 6.0.142

            may not be updated properly when making a change.
Solution:   Add the "linebreaks" argument to ":syn sync".
Files:      runtime/doc/syntax.txt, src/screen.c, src/structs.h, src/syntax.c

Patch 6.0.144
Problem:    After patch 6.0.088 redoing "veU" doesn't work.
Solution:   Don't add the "U" to the redo buffer, it will be used as an undo
Files:      src/normal.c

Patch 6.0.145
Problem:    When Vim can't read any input it might get stuck.  When
            redirecting stdin and stderr Vim would not read commands from a
            file.  (Servatius Brandt)
Solution:   When repeatedly trying to read a character when it's not possible,
            exit Vim.  When stdin and stderr are not a tty, still try reading
            from them, but don't do a blocking wait.
Files:      src/ui.c

Patch 6.0.146
Problem:    When 'statusline' contains "%{'-'}" this results in a zero.
            (Milan Vancura)
Solution:   Don't handle numbers with a minus as a number, they were not
            displayed anyway.
Files:      src/buffer.c

Patch 6.0.147
Problem:    It's not easy to mark a Vim version as being modified.  The new
            license requires this.
Solution:   Add the --modified-by argument to configure and the MODIFIED_BY
            define.  It's used in the intro screen and the ":version" output.
Files:      src/auto/configure, src/configure.in, src/config.h.in,
            src/feature.h, src/version.c

Patch 6.0.148
Problem:    After "p" in an empty line, `[ goes to the second character.
            (Kontra Gergely)
Solution:   Don't increment the column number in an empty line.
Files:      src/ops.c

Patch 6.0.149
Problem:    The pattern "\(.\{-}\)*" causes a hang.  When using a search
            pattern that causes a stack overflow to be detected Vim could
            still hang.
Solution:   Correctly report "operand could be empty" when using "\{-}".
            Check for "out_of_stack" inside loops to avoid a hang.
Files:      src/regexp.c

Patch 6.0.150
Problem:    When using a multi-byte encoding, patch 6.0.148 causes "p" to work
            like "P". (Sung-Hyun Nam)
Solution:   Compute the byte length of a multi-byte character.
Files:      src/ops.c

Patch 6.0.151

Patch 6.0.153
Problem:    When using (illegal) double-byte characters and Vim syntax
            highlighting Vim can crash. (Yasuhiro Matsumoto)
Solution:   Increase a pointer over a character instead of a byte.
Files:      src/regexp.c

Patch 6.0.154
Problem:    MS-DOS and MS-Windows: The menu entries for xxd don't work when
            there is no xxd in the path.
            When converting back from Hex the filetype may remain "xxd" if it
            is not detected.
Solution:   When xxd is not in the path use the one in the runtime directory,
            where the install program has put it.
            Clear the 'filetype' option before detecting the new value.
Files:      runtime/menu.vim

Files:      src/ui.c

Patch 6.0.156
Problem:    Starting Vim with the -b argument and two files, ":next" doesn't
            set 'binary' in the second file, like Vim 5.7. (Norman Diamond)
Solution:   Set the global value for 'binary'.
Files:      src/option.c

Patch 6.0.157
Problem:    When defining a user command with "-complete=dir" files will also
            be expanded.  Also, "-complete=mapping" doesn't appear to work.
            (Michael Naumann)
Solution:   Use the expansion flags defined with the user command.
            Handle expanding mappings specifically.
Files:      src/ex_docmd.c

Patch 6.0.158
Problem:    When getting the warning for a file being changed outside of Vim
            and reloading the file, the 'readonly' option is reset, even when
            the permissions didn't change. (Marcel Svitalsky)
Solution:   Keep 'readonly' set when reloading a file and the permissions
            didn't change.
Files:      src/fileio.c

Patch 6.0.159
Problem:    Wildcard expansion for ":emenu" also shows separators.
Solution:   Skip menu separators for ":emenu", ":popup" and ":tearoff".
            Also, don't handle ":tmenu" as if it was ":tearoff".  And leave
            out the alternatives with "&" included.
Files:      src/menu.c

Patch 6.0.160
Problem:    When compiling with GCC 3.0.2 and using the "-O2" argument, the
            optimizer causes a problem that makes Vim crash.
Solution:   Add a configure check to avoid "-O2" for this version of gcc.

Patch 6.0.196
Problem:    When 'virtualedit' is set, 'selection' is "exclusive" and visually
            selecting part of a tab at the start of a line, "x" joins it with
            the previous line.  Also, when the selection spans more than one
            line the whole tab is deleted.
Solution:   Take coladd into account when adjusting for 'selection' being
            "exclusive".  Also expand a tab into spaces when deleting more
            than one line.

Solution:   Make getviscol() and getviscol2() use getvvcol() to obtain the
            virtual cursor position.  Adjust coladvance() and oneleft() to
            skip over the 'showbreak' characters.

Patch 6.0.206
Problem:    Unix: if expanding a wildcard in a file name results in a

            wildcard, it is expanded again.
            Windows: ":edit \[abc]" could never edit the file "[abc]".
Solution:   Don't expand wildcards in already expanded parts.
            Don't remove backslashes used to escape the special meaning of a
            wildcard; can edit "[abc]" if '[' is removed from 'isfname'.

Patch 6.0.209
Problem:    GUI GTK: After selecting a 'guifont' with the font dialog there
            are redraw problems for multi-byte characters.
Solution:   Separate the font dialog from setting the new font name to avoid
            that "*" is used to find wide and bold fonts.
            When redrawing extra characters for the bold trick, take care of
            UTF-8 characters.

Solution:   Go to end of the fold before counting context lines.
Files:      src/move.c

Patch 6.1b.023

            delete,modify,write) and the file has modify rights, trying to
            write the file deletes it.  Making the file read/write/execute
            (not delete) solves it. (Mark Canup)

VERSION 6.2                                             version-6.2

This section is about improvements made between version 6.1 and 6.2.

This is mainly a bug-fix release.  There are also a few new features.

Main new features:
- Support for GTK 2. (Daniel Elstner)
- Support for editing Arabic text. (Nadim Shaikli & Isam Bayazidi)
- ":try" command and exception handling. (Servatius Brandt)
- Support for the neXtaw GUI toolkit (mostly like Athena). (Alexey Froloff)
- Cscope support for Win32. (Khorev Sergey)
- Support for PostScript printing in various 8-bit encodings. (Mike Williams)

Changed                                                 changed-6.2

Removed the scheme indent file, the internal Lisp indenting works well now.

Moved the GvimEXt, OleVim and VisVim directories into the "src" directory.
This is more consistent with how xxd is handled.

The VisVim.dll file is installed in the top directory, next to gvimext.dll,
instead of in a subdirectory "VisVim".  Fixes that NSIS was uninstalling it
from the wrong directory.

Removed the art indent file, it didn't do anything.

submatch() returned line breaks with CR instead of LF.

Changed the Win32 Makefiles to become more uniform and compile gvimext.dll.
(Dan Sharp)

'cindent': Align a "//" comment with a "//" comment in a previous line.
(Helmut Stiegler)

Previously only for xterm-like terminals parent widgets were followed to find
the title and icon label.  Now do this for all terminal emulators.

Made it possible to recognize backslashes for "%" matching.  The 'M' flag in
'cpoptions' disables it. (Haakon Riiser)

Removed the Make_tcc.mak makefile for Turbo C.  It didn't work and we probably
can't make it work (the compiler runs out of memory).

Even though the documentation refers to keywords, "[ CTRL-D" was using
'isident' to find matches.  Changed it to use 'iskeyword'.  Also applies to
other commands that search for defined words in included files such as
":dsearch", "[D" and "[d".

Made 'keywordprg' global-local. (Christian Robinson)

Enabled the Netbeans interface by default.  Reversed the configure argument
from "--enable-netbeans" to "--disable-netbeans".

Add -Dalloca when running lint to work around a problem with alloca()

When selecting an item in the error window to jump to, take some effort to
find an ordinary window to show the file in (not a preview window).

Support for PostScript printing of various 8-bit encodings. (Mike Williams)

inputdialog() accepts a third argument that is used when the dialog is
cancelled.  Makes it possible to see a difference between cancelling and
entering nothing.

Included Aap recipes.  Can be used to update Vim to the latest version,
building and installing.

"/" option in 'cinoptions': extra indent for comment lines. (Helmut Stiegler)

Vim variable "v:register" and functions setreg(), getreg() and getregtype().
(Michael Geddes)

"v" flag in 'cpoptions': Leave text on screen with backspace in Insert mode.
(Phillip Vandry)

Dosinst.exe also finds gvimext.dll in the "GvimExt" directory.  Useful when
running install in the "src" directory for testing.

Support tag files that were sorted with case ignored. (Flemming Madsen)

When completing a wildcard in a leading path element, as in "../*/Makefile",
only the last part ("Makefile") was listed.  Support custom defined

Also recognize "rxvt" as an xterm-like terminal. (Tomas Styblo)

Proper X11 session management.  Fixes that the WM_SAVE_YOURSELF event was not

cleanup the code for giving messages.  (Khorev Sergey)

GUI: Support more than 222 columns for mouse positions.

The Vim icons in PNG format didn't have a transparent background. (Greg

Fixed a large number of spelling mistakes in the docs. (Adri Verhoef)

The #defines for prototype generation were causing trouble.  Changed them to

A new version of libintl.h uses __asm__, which confuses cproto.  Define a
dummy __asm__ macro.

When 'virtualedit' is set can't move to halfway an unprintable character.
Cripples CTRL-V selection. (Taro Muraoka)
Allow moving to halfway an unprintable character.  Don't let getvvcol() change
the pos->coladd argument.

When a tab wraps to the next line, 'listchars' is set and 'foldcolumn' is
non-zero, only one character of the foldcolumn is highlighted. (Muraoka Taro)

When using ":catch" without an argument Vim crashes. (Yasuhiro Matsumoto)
When no argument given use the ".*" pattern.

Win32: When gvim.exe is started from a shortcut with the window style property
set to maximize Vim doesn't start with a maximized window. (Yasuhiro

again when it's already visible. (Helmut Stiegler)

gui_gtk.c used MAX, but it's undefined to avoid a conflict with system header

Win32: When closing a window from a mapping some pixels remain on the
statusline. (Yasuhiro Matsumoto)

A column number in an errorformat that goes beyond the end of the line may
cause a crash.

":throw 'test'" crashes Vim. (Yasuhiro Matsumoto)

The file selector's scrollbar colors are not set after doing a ":hi Scrollbar
guifg=color".  And the file selector's colors are not changed by the
colorscheme command.  (David Harrison)

Motif: When compiling with FEAT_FOOTER defined, the text area gets a few
pixels extra space on the right.  Remove the special case in
gui_get_base_width(). (David Harrison)

Using CTRL-R CTRL-P in Insert mode puts the '] mark in the wrong position.
(Helmut Stiegler)

When 'formatoptions' includes "awct" a non-comment wasn't auto-formatted.

DEC style mouse support didn't work if the page field is not empty.

"vim -l one two" did only set 'lisp' in the first file.  Vi does it for every

":set tw<" didn't work.  Was checking for '^' instead of '<'.

In ":hardcopy > %.ps" the "%" was not expanded to the current filename.

Made ":redraw" also update the Visual area.

When a not implemented command, such as ":perl", has wrong arguments the less
important error was reported, giving the user the idea the command could work.

On non-Unix systems autocommands for writing did not attempt a match with the
short file name, causing a pattern like "a/b" to fail.

VMS: e_screenmode was not defined and a few other fixes for VMS. (Zoltan

redraw_msg() depended on FEAT_ARABIC instead of FEAT_RIGHTLEFT. (Walter

Various changes for the PC Makefiles. (Walter Briscoe)

Use _truename() instead of our own code to expand a file name into a full
path. (Walter Briscoe)

Error in filetype check for /etc/modutils. (Lubomir Host)

Cscope interface: allocated a buffer too small.

Win16: remove a trailing backslash from a path when obtaining the permission
flags. (Vince Negri)

When searching for tags with case ignored Vim could hang.

re-allocate enough memory. (Vince Negri)

A user command may cause a crash.  Don't use the command index when it's
negative. (Vince Negri)

putenv() didn't work for MingW and Cygwin. (Dan Sharp)

Many functions were common between os_msdos.c and os_win16.c.  Use os_msdos.c
for compiling the Win16 version and remove the functions from os_win16.c.
(Vince Negri)

For terminals that behave like an xterm but didn't have a name that is
recognized, the window title would not always be set.

When syntax highlighting is off ":hardcopy" could still attempt printing

Crash when using ":catch" without an argument.  (Servatius Brandt)

Win32: ":n #" doubled the backslashes.

Fixed Arabic shaping for the command line. (Nadim Shaikli)

Avoid splitting up a string displayed on the command line into individual
characters, it breaks Arabic shaping.

Updated Cygwin and MingW makefiles to use more dependencies. (Dan Sharp)

2html.vim didn't work with 'nomagic' set.

When a local argument list is used and doing ":only" Vim could crash later.
(Muraoka Taro)

When using "%P" in 'statusline' and the fillchar is "-", a percentage of 3%

MSwin: Handling of backslashes and double quotes for command line arguments
was not like what other applications do.  (Walter Briscoe)

Test32 sometimes didn't work, because test11.out was written as TEST11.OUT.

Avoid pointer conversions warnings for Borland C 5.5 in dosinst.c and

More improvements for Make_bc3.mak file. (Walter Briscoe)

When ":syn sync linebreaks=1" is used, editing the first line caused a redraw
of the whole screen.

Making translated messages didn't work, if_perl.xs wasn't found. (Vlad

Motif and Athena: moving Vim to the foreground didn't uniconify it.  Use
XMapRaised() instead of XRaiseWindow(). (Srikanth Sankaran)

When using ":ptag" in a window where 'scrollbind' is set the preview window
would also have 'scrollbind' set.  Also reset 'foldcolumn' and 'diff'.

Various commands that split a window took over 'scrollbind', which is hardly
ever desired.  Esp. for "q:" and ":copen".  Mostly reset 'scrollbind' when
splitting a window.

When 'shellslash' is set in the vimrc file the first entry of ":scriptnames"
would still have backslashes.  Entries in the quickfix list could also have
wrong (back)slashes.

Win32: printer dialog texts were not translated. (Yasuhiro Matsumoto)

When using a multi-byte character with a K_SPECIAL byte or a special key code
with "--remote-send" the received byte sequence was mangled.  Put it in the
typeahead buffer instead of the input buffer.

Win32: The cursor position was incorrect after changing cursor shape.
(Yasuhiro Matsumoto).

Win32: When 'encoding' is not the current codepage the title could not be set
to non-ascii characters.

"vim -d scp://machine/file1 scp://machine/file2" did not work, there was only
one window.  Fixed the netrw plugin not to wipe out the buffer if it is
displayed in other windows.

"/$" caused "e" in last column of screen to disappear, a highlighted blank was
displayed instead.

":s/ *\ze\n//e" removed the line break and introduced arbitrary text.  Was
using the line count including what matched after the "\ze".

Using the "c" flag with ":s" changed the behavior when a line break is
replaced and "\@<=" is used.  Without "c" a following match was not found.

":%s/\vA@<=\nB@=//gce" got stuck on "A\nB" when entering "n".

VMS: add HAVE_STRFTIME in the config file. (Zoltan Arpadffy)

When a delete prompts if a delete should continue when yanking is not
possible, restore msg_silent afterwards.

":sign" did not complain about a missing argument.

When adding or deleting a sign 'hlsearch' highlighting could disappear.
Use the generic functions for updating signs.

On MS-Windows NT, 2K and XP don't use command.com but cmd.exe for testing.
Makes the tests work on more systems.

In the DOS tests don't create "/tmp" to avoid an error.

Mac classic: Problems with reading files with CR vs CR/LF.  Rely on the
library version of fgets() to work correctly for Metrowerks 2.2. (Axel

When typing a password a "*" was shown for each byte instead of for each
character.  Added multi-byte handling to displaying the stars. (Yasuhiro

When using Perl 5.6 accessing $curbuf doesn't work.  Add an #ifdef to use
different code for 5.6 and 5.8.  (Dan Sharp)

MingW and Cygwin: Don't strip the debug executable. (Dan Sharp)

An assignment to a variable with curlies that includes "==" doesn't work.
Skip over the curlies before searching for an "=". (Vince Negri)

When cancelling the selection of alternate matching tags the tag stack index

Patch 6.1.060
Problem:    When 'virtualedit' is set and 'selection' is "exclusive", deleting
            a character just before a tab changes the tab into spaces.  Undo
            doesn't restore the tab. (Helmut Stiegler)

            conform to the standard method://[user@]host[:port]/path.

Patch 6.1.082
Problem:    On MS-Windows the vimrc_example.vim script is sourced and then
            mswin.vim.  This enables using select mode, but since "p" is
            mapped it doesn't replace the selection.
Solution:   Remove the mapping of "p" from vimrc_example.vim, it's obsolete.

Patch 6.1.102
Problem:    Unprintable and multi-byte characters in a statusline item are not
            truncated correctly. (Yasuhiro Matsumoto)

Files:      src/buffer.c

Patch 6.1.103
Problem:    A function returning from a while loop, with 'verbose' set to 12
            or higher, doesn't mention the return value.  A function with the
            'abort' attribute may return -1 while the verbose message says
            something else.
Solution:   Move the verbose message about returning from a function to
            call_func(). (Servatius Brandt)

Patch 6.1.112
Problem:    When using ":argdo", ":bufdo" or ":windo", CTRL-O doesn't go to
            the cursor position from before this command but every position
            where the argument was executed.
Solution:   Only remember the cursor position from before the ":argdo",
            ":bufdo" and ":windo".

Patch 6.1.116
Problem:    When 'endofline' is changed while 'binary' is set a file should be
            considered modified. (Olaf Buddenhagen)
Solution:   Remember the 'eol' value when editing started and consider the
            file changed when the current value is different and 'binary' is
            set.  Also fix that the window title isn't updated when 'ff' or
            'bin' changes.

Patch 6.1.143 (depends on 6.1.142)
Problem:    Auto formatting near the end of the file moves the cursor to a
            wrong position.  In Insert mode some lines are made one char too

Solution:   Don't always move to the end of the line in the last line.  Don't
            position the cursor past the end of the line in Insert mode.
            After deleting a line save the cursor line for undo.

Problem:    Making changes in several lines and then a change in one of these
            lines that splits it in two or more lines, undo information was
            corrupted.  May cause a crash. (Dave Fishburn)
Solution:   When skipping to save a line for undo because it was already
            saved, move it to become the last saved line, so that when the
            command changes the line count other saved lines are not involved.

Patch 6.1.195
Problem:    The quickfix and preview windows always keep their height, while
            other windows can't fix their height.
Solution:   Add the 'winfixheight' option, so that a fixed height can be
            specified for any window.  Also fix that the wildmenu may resize a

Patch 6.1.206
Problem:    The script generated with ":mksession" doesn't work properly when

Patch 6.1.217
Problem:    When sourcing the same Vim script using a different name (symbolic
            link or MS-Windows 8.3 name) it is listed twice with
            ":scriptnames".  (Tony Mechelynck)
Solution:   Turn the script name into a full path before using it.  On Unix
            compare inode/device numbers.

            'insertmode' is set, Vim does not return to Insert mode. (Mickael
Solution:   Add the command CTRL-\ CTRL-G that goes to Insert mode if
            'insertmode' is set and to Normal mode otherwise.  Append this to
            menus defined with ":amenu".

Patch 6.1.220
Problem:    When using a BufReadPost autocommand that changes the line count,
            e.g., "$-1join", reloading a file that was changed outside Vim
            does not work properly. (Alan G Isaac)
Solution:   Make the buffer empty before reading the new version of the file.
            Save the lines in a dummy buffer, so that they can be put back
            when reading the file fails.

Problem:    Win32: When IME is activated 'iminsert' is set, but it might never
            be reset when IME is disabled. (Muraoka Taro)
            All systems: 'iminsert' is set to 2 when leaving Insert mode, even
            when langmap is being used. (Peter Valach)
Solution:   Don't set "b_p_iminsert" in _OnImeNotify(). (Muraoka Taro)
            Don't store the status of the input method in 'iminsert' when
            'iminsert' is one.  Also for editing the command line and for
            arguments to Normal mode commands.

            is not an existing file. (Aric Blumer)
Solution:   Included non-existing files, as documented.
Files:      src/eval.c

Patch 6.1.225
Problem:    Using <C-O><C-^> in Insert mode has a delay when starting "vim -u
            NONE" and ":set nocp hidden". (Emmanuel)  do_ecmd() uses
            fileinfo(), the redraw is done after a delay to give the user time
            to read the message.
Solution:   Put the message from fileio() in "keep_msg", so that the redraw is
            done before the delay (still needed to avoid the mode message
            overwrites the fileinfo() message).
Files:      src/buffer.c

Files:      src/eval.c

Patch 6.1.228 (extra)
Problem:    Win32: The special output function for Hangul is used too often,
            causing special handling for other situations to be skipped.
            bInComposition is always FALSE, causing ImeGetTempComposition()
            always to return NULL.
Solution:   Remove HanExtTextOut().  Delete the dead code around
            bInComposition and ImeGetTempComposition().

Patch 6.1.229
Problem:    Win32: Conversion to/from often used codepages requires the iconv
            library, which is not always available.

            possible. (mostly by Glenn Maynard)
            Also fixes missing declaration for patch 6.1.220.

Patch 6.1.231
Problem:    Double clicking with the mouse to select a word does not work for
            multi-byte characters.
Solution:   Use vim_iswordc() instead of vim_isIDc().  This means 'iskeyword'
            is used instead of 'isident'.  Also fix that mixing ASCII with
            multi-byte word characters doesn't work, the mouse class for
            punctuation and word characters was mixed up.
Files:      src/normal.c

Patch 6.1.232 (depends on 6.1.226)

Patch 6.1.472
Problem:    When there is an authentication error when connecting to the X
            server Vim exits.
Solution:   Use XSetIOErrorHandler() to catch the error and longjmp() to avoid
            the exit.  Also do this in the main loop, so that when the X
            server exits a Vim running in a console isn't killed.

            (Gordon Prieur)
Solution:   Fix the tests in configure.in where the default is to enable a

            XIM activation.  Japanese XIM may hang when using 'imactivatekey'.
            Can't activate XIM after typing fFtT command or ":sh".
Solution:   Properly set the flag that indicates the IM is active.  Update the
            cursor right away.  Do not send a key-release event.  Handle
            Normal mode and running an external command differently.

VERSION 6.3                                             version-6.3

This section is about improvements made between version 6.2 and 6.3.

This is mainly a bug-fix release.  There are also a few new features.
The major number of new items is in the runtime files and translations.

Changed                                                 changed-6.3

The intro message also displays a note about sponsoring Vim, mixed randomly
with the message about helping children in Uganda.

Included the translated menus, keymaps and tutors with the normal runtime
files.  The separate "lang" archive now only contains translated messages.

Made the translated menu file names a bit more consistent.  Use "latin1" for
"iso_8859-1" and "iso_8859-15".

Removed the "file_select.vim" script from the distribution.  It's not more
useful than other scripts that can be downloaded from www.vim.org.

The "runtime/doc/tags" file is now always in unix fileformat.  On MS-Windows
it used to be dos fileformat, but ":helptags" generates a unix format file.

Added                                                   added-6.3

New commands:
        :cNfile         go to last error in previous file
        :cpfile         idem
        :changes        print the change list
        :keepmarks      following command keeps marks where they are
        :keepjumps      following command keeps jumplist and marks
        :lockmarks      following command keeps marks where they are
        :redrawstatus   force a redraw of the status line(s)

New options:
        'antialias'     Mac OS X: use smooth, antialiased fonts
        'helplang'      preferred help languages

The big Win32 version is now compiled with Ruby interface, version 1.8.  For
Python version 2.3 is used.  For Perl version 5.8 is used.

            (Taro Muraoka)
Files:      src/fold.c

Patch 6.2.160
Problem:    When 'virtualedit' is "all" and 'selection' is "exclusive",

Problem:    The "-or" argument of "find" doesn't work for SysV systems.
Solution:   Use "-o" instead. (Gordon Prieur)
Files:      src/Makefile

Patch 6.2.172 (after 6.2.169)
Problem:    The prototype for _Xmblen() still causes trouble.
Solution:   Include the X11 header file that defines the prototype.

Patch 6.2.173 (extra)
Problem:    Win32: Ruby interface doesn't work with Ruby 1.8.0 for other
            compilers than MSVC.
Solution:   Fix the BC5, Cygwin and Mingw makefiles. (Dan Sharp)
Files:      src/Make_bc5.mak, src/Make_cyg.mak, src/Make_ming.mak

Patch 6.2.174
Problem:    After the ":intro" message only a mouse click in the last line
            gets past the hit-return prompt.
Solution:   Accept a click at or below the hit-return prompt.
Files:      src/gui.c, src/message.c

Patch 6.2.175
Problem:    Changing 'backupext' in a *WritePre autocommand doesn't work.
            (William Natter)
Solution:   Move the use of p_bex to after executing the *WritePre
            autocommands.  Also avoids reading allocated memory after freeing.
Files:      src/fileio.c

Patch 6.2.176
Problem:    Accented characters in translated help files are not handled
            correctly. (Fabien Vayssiere)

Problem:    VisVim: Opening a file with a space in the name doesn't work. (Rob
            Retter)  Arbitrary commands are being executed. (Neil Bird)
Solution:   Put a backslash in front of every space in the file name.
            (Gerard Blais)  Terminate the CTRL-\ CTRL-N command with a NUL.
Files:      src/VisVim/Commands.cpp, src/VisVim/VisVim.rc

Patch 6.2.178
Problem:    People who don't know how to exit Vim try pressing CTRL-C.
Solution:   Give a message how to exit Vim when CTRL-C is pressed and it
            doesn't cancel anything.
Files:      src/normal.c

Patch 6.2.179 (extra)
Problem:    The en_gb messages file isn't found on case sensitive systems.
Solution:   Rename en_gb to en_GB. (Mike Williams)

Patch 6.2.181 (after 6.2.171)
Problem:    The "-o" argument of "find" has lower priority than the implied
            "and" with "-print".
Solution:   Add parenthesis around the "-o" expression. (Gordon Prieur)
Files:      src/Makefile

Patch 6.2.182 (after 6.2.094)
Problem:    Compilation with tiny features fails because of missing
            get_past_head() function.
Solution:   Adjust the #ifdef for get_past_head().
Files:      src/misc1.c

Patch 6.2.183 (after 6.2.178)
Problem:    Warning for char/unsigned char mixup.
Solution:   Use MSG() instead of msg(). (Tony Leneis)
Files:      src/normal.c

Patch 6.2.184
Problem:    With 'formatoptions' set to "1aw" inserting text may cause the
            paragraph to be ended. (Alan Schmitt)
Solution:   Temporarily add an extra space to make the paragraph continue
            after moving the word after the cursor to the next line.
            Also format when pressing Esc.
Files:      src/edit.c, src/normal.c, src/proto/edit.pro

Patch 6.2.185
Problem:    Restoring a session with zero-height windows does not work
            properly. (Charles Campbell)
Solution:   Accept a zero argument to ":resize" as intended.  Add a window
            number argument to ":resize" to be able to set the size of other
            windows, because the current window cannot be zero-height.
            Fix the explorer plugin to avoid changing the window sizes.  Add
            the winrestcmd() function for this.

            src/ex_cmds.h, src/ex_docmd.c, src/proto/window.pro, src/window.c

Patch 6.2.186 (after 6.2.185)
Problem:    Documentation file eval.txt contains examples without indent.
Solution:   Insert the indent.  Also fix other mistakes.
Files:      runtime/doc/eval.txt

Patch 6.2.187
Problem:    Using Insure++ reveals a number of bugs.  (Dominique Pelle)
Solution:   Initialize variables where needed.  Free allocated memory to avoid
            leaks.  Fix comparing tags to avoid reading past allocated memory.

Patch 6.2.188 (extra)
Problem:    MS-Windows: Multi-byte characters in a filename cause trouble for
            the window title.
Solution:   Return when the wide function for setting the title did its work.
Files:      src/gui_w48.c

Patch 6.2.189
Problem:    When setting 'viminfo' after editing a new buffer its marks are
            not stored. (Keith Roberts)
Solution:   Set the "b_marks_read" flag when skipping to read marks from the
            viminfo file.
Files:      src/fileio.c

Patch 6.2.190
Problem:    When editing a compressed files, marks are lost.
Solution:   Add the ":lockmarks" modifier and use it in the gzip plugin.
            Make exists() also check for command modifiers, so that the
            existence of ":lockmarks" can be checked for.
            Also add ":keepmarks" to avoid that marks are deleted when
            filtering text.
            When deleting lines put marks 'A - 'Z and '0 - '9 at the first
            deleted line instead of clearing the mark.  They were kept in the
            viminfo file anyway.
            Avoid that the gzip plugin puts deleted text in registers.

            src/ex_docmd.c, src/mark.c, src/structs.h

Patch 6.2.191
Problem:    The intro message is outdated.  Information about sponsoring and
            registering is missing.
Solution:   Show info about sponsoring and registering Vim in the intro
            message now and then.  Add help file about sponsoring.
Files:      runtime/doc/help.txt, runtime/doc/sponsor.txt, runtime/doc/tags,
            runtime/menu.vim, src/version.c

Patch 6.2.192
Problem:    Using CTRL-T and CTRL-D with "gR" messes up the text.  (Jonathan
Solution:   Avoid calling change_indent() recursively.
Files:      src/edit.c

Patch 6.2.193
Problem:    When recalling a search pattern from the history from a ":s,a/c,"
            command the '/' ends the search string. (JC van Winkel)
Solution:   Store the separator character with the history entries.  Escape
            characters when needed, replace the old separator with the new one.
            Also fixes that recalling a "/" search for a "?" command messes up
            trailing flags.

Patch 6.2.194 (after 6.2.068)
Problem:    For NetBeans, instead of writing the file and sending an event
            about it, tell NetBeans to write the file.
Solution:   Add the "save" command, "netbeansBuffer" command and
            "buttonRelease" event to the netbeans protocol.  Updated the
            interface to version 2.2.  (Gordon Prieur)
            Also: open a fold when the cursor has been positioned.
            Also: fix memory leak, free result of nb_quote().

Solution:   Mark the messages to be translated.
Files:      src/ex_cmds.c

Patch 6.2.199 (after 6.2.194)
Problem:    Vim doesn't work perfectly well with NetBeans.
Solution:   When NetBeans saves the file, reset the timestamp to avoid "file
            changed" warnings.  Close a buffer in a proper way.  Don't try
            giving a debug message with an invalid pointer.  Send a
            newDotAndMark message when needed.  Report a change by the "r"
            command to NetBeans.  (Gordon Prieur)
Files:      src/netbeans.c, src/normal.c

Patch 6.2.200
Problem:    When recovering a file, 'fileformat' is always the default, thus
            writing the file may result in differences. (Penelope Fudd)
Solution:   Before recovering the file try reading the original file to obtain
            the values of 'fileformat', 'fileencoding', etc.
Files:      src/memline.c

Patch 6.2.201
Problem:    When 'autowriteall' is set ":qall" still refuses to exit if there
            is a modified buffer. (Antoine Mechelynck)
Solution:   Attempt writing modified buffers as intended.
Files:      src/ex_cmds2.c

Patch 6.2.202
Problem:    Filetype names of CHILL and ch script are confusing.
Solution:   Rename "ch" to "chill" and "chscript" to "ch".

            runtime/syntax/ch.vim, runtime/syntax/chill.vim

Patch 6.2.203
Problem:    With characterwise text that has more than one line, "3P" works
            wrong.  "3p" has the same problem.  There also is a display
            problem. (Daniel Goujot)
Solution:   Perform characterwise puts with a count in the right position.
Files:      src/ops.c

Patch 6.2.204 (after 6.2.086)
Problem:    "]]" in a file with closed folds moves to the end of the file.
            (Nam SungHyun)
Solution:   Find one position in each closed fold, then move to after the fold.
Files:      src/search.c

Patch 6.2.205 (extra)
Problem:    MS-Windows: When the taskbar is at the left or top of the screen,
            the Vim window placement is wrong.
Solution:   Compute the size and position of the window correctly. (Taro

Patch 6.2.206
Problem:    Multi-byte characters cannot be used as hotkeys in a console
            dialog.  (Mattias Erkisson)
Solution:   Handle multi-byte characters properly.  Also put () or [] around
            default hotkeys.
Files:      src/message.c, src/macros.h

Patch 6.2.207
Problem:    When 'encoding' is a multi-byte encoding, expanding an
            abbreviation that starts where insertion started results in
            characters before the insertion to be deleted.  (Xiangjiang Ma)
Solution:   Stop searching leftwards for the start of the word at the position
            where insertion started.
Files:      src/getchar.c

Patch 6.2.208
Problem:    When using fold markers, three lines in a row have the start
            marker and deleting the first one with "dd", a nested fold is not
            deleted.  (Kamil Burzynski)
            Using marker folding, a level 1 fold doesn't stop when it is
            followed by "{{{2", starting a level 2 fold.
Solution:   Don't stop updating folds at the end of a change when the nesting
            level of folds is larger than the fold level.
            Correctly compute the number of folds that start at "{{{2".
            Also avoid a crash for a NULL pointer.
Files:      src/fold.c

Patch 6.2.209
Problem:    A bogus fold is created when using "P" while the cursor is in the
            middle of a closed fold. (Kamil Burzynski)
Solution:   Correct the line number where marks are modified for closed folds.
Files:      src/ops.c

Patch 6.2.210 (extra)
Problem:    Mac OSX: antialiased fonts are not supported.
Solution:   Add the 'antialias' option to switch on antialiasing on Mac OSX
            10.2 and later. (Peter Cucka)
Files:      runtime/doc/options.txt, src/gui_mac.c, src/option.h, src/option.c

Patch 6.2.211 (extra)
Problem:    Code for handling file dropped on Vim is duplicated.
Solution:   Move the common code to gui_handle_drop().
            Add code to drop the files in the window under the cursor.
            Support drag&drop on the Macintosh.  (Taro Muraoka)
            When dropping a directory name edit that directory (using the
            explorer plugin)
            Fix that changing directory with Shift pressed didn't work for
            relative path names.

Patch 6.2.212 (after 6.2.199)
Problem:    NetBeans: Replacing with a count is not handled correctly.
Solution:   Move reporting the change outside of the loop for the count.
            (Gordon Prieur)
Files:      src/normal.c

Patch 6.2.213 (after 6.2.208)
Problem:    Using marker folding, "{{{1" doesn't start a new fold when already
            at fold level 1. (Servatius Brandt)
Solution:   Correctly compute the number of folds that start at "{{{1".
Files:      src/fold.c

Patch 6.2.219
Problem:    Syntax highlighting hangs on an empty match of an item with a
            nextgroup.  (Charles Campbell)
Solution:   Remember that the item has already matched and don't match it
            again at the same position.
Files:      src/syntax.c

Patch 6.2.220
Problem:    When a Vim server runs in a console a remote command isn't handled
            before a key is typed.  (Joshua Neuheisel)
Solution:   Don't try reading more input when a client-server command has been

Solution:   Add the XFILE flag to ":cscope". (Gary Johnson)
Files:      src/ex_cmds.h

Patch 6.2.222
Problem:    Using "--remote" several times on a row only opens some of the
            files. (Dany St-Amant)
Solution:   Don't delete all typeahead when the server receives a command from
            a client, only delete typed characters.
Files:      src/main.c

Patch 6.2.223
Problem:    Cscope: Avoid a hang when cscope waits for a response while Vim
            waits for a prompt.
            Error messages from Cscope mess up the display.
Solution:   Detect the hit-enter message and respond by sending a return
            character to cscope. (Gary Johnson)
            Use EMSG() and strerror() when possible.  Replace perror() with
            PERROR() everywhere, add emsg3().

Patch 6.2.228
Problem:    Receiving CTRL-\ CTRL-N after typing "f" or "m" doesn't switch Vim
            back to Normal mode.  Same for CTRL-\ CTRL-G.
Solution:   Check if the character typed after a command is CTRL-\ and obtain
            another character to check for CTRL-N or CTRL-G, waiting up to
            'ttimeoutlen' msec.

Patch 6.2.230 (extra)
Problem:    Win32: a complex pattern may cause a crash.
Solution:   Use __try and __except to catch the exception and handle it
            gracefully, when possible.  Add myresetstkoflw() to reset the
            stack overflow. (Benjamin Peterson)

Patch 6.2.231 (after 6.2.046)
Problem:    Various problems when an error exception is raised from within a
            builtin function.  When it is invoked while evaluating arguments
            to a function following arguments are still evaluated.  When
            invoked with a line range it will be called for remaining lines.
Solution:   Update "force_abort" also after calling a builtin function, so
            that aborting() always returns the correct value. (Servatius

Patch 6.2.233
Problem:    On Mac OSX adding -pthread for Python only generates a warning.
            The test for Perl threads rejects Perl while it's OK.
            Tcl doesn't work at all.
            The test for Ruby fails if ruby exists but there are no header
            files.  The Ruby library isn't detected properly
Solution:   Avoid adding -pthread on Mac OSX.  Accept Perl threads when it's
            not the 5.5 threads.
            Use the Tcl framework for header files.  For Ruby rename cWindow
            to cVimWindow to avoid a name clash. (Ken Scott)
            Only enable Ruby when the header files can be found.  Use "-lruby"
            instead of "libruby.a" when it can't be found.

Patch 6.2.237
Problem:    GTK 2: Thai text is drawn wrong.  It changes when moving the
            cursor over it.
Solution:   Disable the shaping engine, it moves combining characters to a
            wrong position and combines characters, while drawing the cursor
            doesn't combine characters.

Patch 6.2.238 (after 6.2.231)
Problem:    ":function" does not work inside a while loop. (Servatius Brandt)
Solution:   Add get_while_line() and pass it to do_one_cmd() when in a while
            loop, so that all lines are stored and can be used again when
            repeating the loop.
            Adjust test 49 so that it checks for the fixed problems.

Patch 6.2.239
Problem:    GTK 2: With closed folds the arrow buttons of a vertical scrollbar
            often doesn't scroll. (Moshe Kaminsky)
Solution:   Hackish solution: Detect that the button was pressed from the
            mouse pointer position.
Files:      src/gui_gtk.c, src/gui.c

Patch 6.2.240
Problem:    GTK 2: Searching for bitmaps for the toolbar doesn't work as with
            other systems.  Need to explicitly use "icon=name".  (Ned Konz,
            Christian J.  Robinson)
Solution:   Search for icons like done for Motif.
Files:      src/gui_gtk.c

Patch 6.2.241
Problem:    GTK 2: Search and Search/Replace dialogs are synced, that makes no
            sense.  Buttons are sometimes greyed-out. (Jeremy Messenger)
Solution:   Remove the code to sync the two dialogs.  Adjust the code to react
            to an empty search string to also work for GTK2. (David Necas)
Files:      src/gui_gtk.c

Patch 6.2.242
Problem:    Gnome: "vim --help" only shows the Gnome arguments, not the Vim
Solution:   Don't let the Gnome code remove the "--help" argument and don't
            exit at the end of usage().
Files:      src/gui_gtk_x11.c, src/main.c

Patch 6.2.243 (extra)
Problem:    Mac: Dropping a file on a Vim icon causes a hit-enter prompt.
Solution:   Move the dropped files to the global argument list, instead of the
            usual drop handling. (Eckehard Berns)
Files:      src/main.c, src/gui_mac.c

Patch 6.2.244
Problem:    ':echo "\xf7"' displays the illegal byte as if it was a character
            and leaves "cho" after it.
Solution:   When checking the length of a UTF-8 byte sequence and it's shorter
            than the number of bytes available, assume it's an illegal byte.
Files:      src/mbyte.c

Patch 6.2.245
Problem:    Completion doesn't work for ":keepmarks" and ":lockmarks".
Solution:   Add the command modifiers to the table of commands. (Madoka
Files:      src/ex_cmds.h, src/ex_docmd.c

Patch 6.2.246
Problem:    Mac: Starting Vim from Finder doesn't show error messages.
Solution:   Recognize that output is being displayed by stderr being
            "/dev/console".  (Eckehard Berns)
Files:      src/main.c, src/message.c

Patch 6.2.247 (after 6.2.193)
Problem:    When using a search pattern from the viminfo file the last
            character is replaced with a '/'.

Files:      src/ex_getln.c

Patch 6.2.248
Problem:    GTK: When XIM is enabled normal "2" and keypad "2" cannot be
Solution:   Detect that XIM changes the keypad key to the expected ASCII
            character and fall back to the non-XIM code. (Neil Bird)
Files:      src/gui_gtk_x11.c, src/mbyte.c, src/proto/mbyte.pro

Patch 6.2.249
Problem:    ":cnext" moves to the error in the next file, but there is no
            method to go back.
Solution:   Add ":cpfile" and ":cNfile".
Files:      src/ex_cmds.h, src/quickfix.c, src/vim.h, runtime/doc/quickfix.txt

Patch 6.2.250
Problem:    Memory leaks when using signs. (Xavier de Gaye)
Solution:   Delete the list of signs when unloading a buffer.
Files:      src/buffer.c

Patch 6.2.251
Problem:    GTK: The 'v' flag in 'guioptions' doesn't work. (Steve Hall)
            Order of buttons is reversed for GTK 2.2.4.  Don't always get
            focus back after handling a dialog.
Solution:   Make buttons appear vertically when desired.  Reverse the order in
            which buttons are added to a dialog.  Move mouse pointer around
            when the dialog is done and we don't have focus.
Files:      src/gui_gtk.c

Patch 6.2.252 (extra, after 6.2.243)
Problem:    Mac: Dropping a file on a Vim icon causes a hit-enter prompt for
            Mac OS classic.
Solution:   Remove the #ifdef from the code that fixes it for Mac OSX.
Files:      src/gui_mac.c

Patch 6.2.253
Problem:    When 'tagstack' is not set a ":tag id" command does not work after
            a ":tjump" command.
Solution:   Set "new_tag" when 'tagstack' isn't set. (G. Narendran)
Files:      src/tag.c

Patch 6.2.254
Problem:    May run out of space for error messages.
Solution:   Keep room for two more bytes.
Files:      src/quickfix.c

Patch 6.2.255
Problem:    GTK: A new item in the popup menu is put just after instead of
            just before the right item. (Gabriel Zachmann)
Solution:   Don't increment the menu item index.
Files:      src/gui_gtk.c

Patch 6.2.256
Problem:    Mac: "macroman" encoding isn't recognized, need to use
Solution:   Recognize "macroman" with an alias "mac". (Eckehard Berns)
Files:      src/mbyte.c

Patch 6.2.257 (after 6.2.250)
Problem:    Signs are deleted for ":bdel", but they could still be useful.
Solution:   Delete signs only for ":bwipe".
Files:      src/buffer.c

Patch 6.2.258
Problem:    GUI: can't disable (grey-out) a popup menu item.  (Ajit Thakkar)
Solution:   Loop over the popup menus for all modes.
Files:      src/menu.c

Patch 6.2.259
Problem:    If there are messages when exiting, on the console there is a
            hit-enter prompt while the message can be read; in the GUI the
            message may not be visible.
Solution:   Use the hit-enter prompt when there is an error message from
            writing the viminfo file or autocommands, or when there is any
            output in the GUI and 'verbose' is set.  Don't use a hit-enter
            prompt for the non-GUI version unless there is an error message.
Files:      src/main.c

Patch 6.2.260
Problem:    GTK 2: Can't quit a dialog with <Esc>.
            GTK 1 and 2: <Enter> always gives a result, even when the default
            button has been disabled.
Solution:   Handle these keys explicitly.  When no default button is specified
            use the first one (works mostly like it was before).
Files:      src/gui_gtk.c

Patch 6.2.261
Problem:    When 'autoindent' and 'cindent' are set and a line is recognized
            as a comment, starting a new line won't do 'cindent' formatting.
Solution:   Also use 'cindent' formatting for lines that are used as a
            comment. (Servatius Brandt)
Files:      src/misc1.c

Patch 6.2.262
Problem:    1 CTRL-W w beeps, even though going to the first window is
            possible. (Charles Campbell)
Solution:   Don't beep.
Files:      src/window.c

Patch 6.2.263
Problem:    Lint warnings: Duplicate function prototypes, duplicate macros,
            use of a zero character instead of a zero pointer, unused
            variable.  Clearing allocated memory in a complicated way.
Solution:   Remove the function prototypes from farsi.h.  Remove the
            duplicated lines in keymap.h.  Change getvcol() argument from NUL
            to NULL.  Remove the "col" variable in regmatch().  Use
            lalloc_clear() instead of lalloc(). (Walter Briscoe)
Files:      src/farsi.h, src/keymap.h, src/ops.c, src/regexp.c, src/search.c

Patch 6.2.264 (after 6.2.247)
Problem:    Writing past allocated memory when using a command line from the
            viminfo file.
Solution:   Store the NUL in the right place.
Files:      src/ex_getln.c

Patch 6.2.265
Problem:    Although ":set" is not allowed in the sandbox, ":let &opt = val"
Solution:   Do allow changing options in the sandbox, but not the ones that
            can't be changed from a modeline.
Files:      src/ex_cmds.h, src/options.c

Patch 6.2.266
Problem:    When redirecting output and using ":silent", line breaks are
            missing from output of ":map" and ":tselect".  Alignment of
            columns is wrong.
Solution:   Insert a line break where "msg_didout" was tested.  Update msg_col
            when redirecting and using ":silent".
Files:      src/getchar.c, src/message.c

Patch 6.2.267 (extra)
Problem:    Win32: "&&" in a tearoff menu is not shown. (Luc Hermitte)
Solution:   Use the "name" item from the menu instead of the "dname" item.
Files:      src/gui_w32.c, src/menu.c

Patch 6.2.268
Problem:    GUI: When changing 'guioptions' part of the window may be off
            screen. (Randall Morris)
Solution:   Adjust the size of the window when changing 'guioptions', but only
            when adding something.
Files:      src/gui.c

Patch 6.2.269
Problem:    Diff mode does not highlight a change in a combining character.
            (Raphael Finkel)
Solution:   Make diff_find_change() multi-byte aware: find the start byte of
            a character that contains a change.
Files:      src/diff.c

Patch 6.2.270
Problem:    Completion in Insert mode, then repeating with ".", doesn't handle
            composing characters in the completed text. (Raphael Finkel)
Solution:   Don't skip over composing chars when adding completed text to the
            redo buffer.
Files:      src/getchar.c

Patch 6.2.271
Problem:    NetBeans: Can't do "tail -f" on the log.  Passing socket info with
            an argument or environment variable is not secure.
Solution:   Wait after initializing the log.  Allow passing the socket info
            through a file. (Gordon Prieur)
Files:      runtime/doc/netbeans.txt, src/main.c, src/netbeans.c

Patch 6.2.272
Problem:    When the "po" directory exists, but "po/Makefile" doesn't,
            building fails.  Make loops when the "po" directory has been
            deleted after running configure.
Solution:   Check for the "po/Makefile" instead of just the "po" directory.
            Check this again before trying to run make with that Makefile.
Files:      src/auto/configure, src/configure.in, src/Makefile

Patch 6.2.273
Problem:    Changing the sort order in an explorer window for an empty
            directory produces error messages. (Doug Kearns)
Solution:   When an invalid range is used for a function that is not going to
            be executed, skip over the arguments anyway.
Files:      src/eval.c

Patch 6.2.274
Problem:    ":print" skips empty lines when 'list' is set and there is no
            "eol" in 'listchars'. (Yakov Lerner)
Solution:   Skip outputting a space for an empty line only when 'list' is set
            and the end-of-line character is not empty.
Files:      src/message.c

Patch 6.2.275 (extra, after 6.2.267)
Problem:    Warning for uninitialized variable when using gcc.
Solution:   Initialize "acLen" to zero. (Bill McCarthy)
Files:      src/gui_w32.c

Patch 6.2.276
Problem:    ":echo X()" does not put a line break between the message that X()
            displays and the text that X() returns. (Yakov Lerner)
Solution:   Invoke msg_start() after evaluating the argument.
Files:      src/eval.c

Patch 6.2.277
Problem:    Vim crashes when a ":runtime ftplugin/ada.vim" causes a recursive
            loop. (Robert Nowotniak)
Solution:   Restore "msg_list" before returning from do_cmdline().
Files:      src/ex_docmd.c

Patch 6.2.278
Problem:    Using "much" instead of "many".
Solution:   Correct the error message.
Files:      src/eval.c

Patch 6.2.279
Problem:    There is no default choice for a confirm() dialog, now that it is

Patch 6.2.280
Problem:    "do" and ":diffget" don't work in the first line and the last line
            of a buffer. (Aron Griffis)
Solution:   Find a difference above the first line and below the last line.
            Also fix a few display updating bugs.

Solution:   Adjust the header file. (Mike Williams)
Files:      runtime/print/prolog.ps

Patch 6.2.282
Problem:    When using CTRL-O to go back to a help file, it becomes listed.
            (Andrew Nesbit)
            Using ":tag" or ":tjump" in a help file doesn't keep the help file
            settings (e.g. for 'iskeyword').
Solution:   Don't mark a buffer as listed when its help flag is set.  Put all
            the option settings for a help buffer together in do_ecmd().
Files:      src/ex_cmds.c

Patch 6.2.283
Problem:    The "local additions" in help.txt are used without conversion,
            causing latin1 characters showing up wrong when 'enc' is utf-8.
            (Antoine J. Mechelynck)
Solution:   Convert the text to 'encoding'.
Files:      src/ex_cmds.c

Patch 6.2.284
Problem:    Listing a function puts "endfunction" in the message history.
            Typing "q" at the more prompt isn't handled correctly when listing
            variables and functions.  (Hara Krishna Dara)
Solution:   Don't use msg() for "endfunction".  Check "got_int" regularly.
Files:      src/eval.c

Patch 6.2.285
Problem:    GUI: In a single wrapped line that fills the window, "gj" in the
            last screen line leaves the cursor behind. (Ivan Tarasov)
Solution:   Undraw the cursor before scrolling the text up.
Files:      src/gui.c

Patch 6.2.286
Problem:    When trying to rename a file and it doesn't exist, the destination
            file is deleted anyway. (Luc Deux)
Solution:   Don't delete the destination when the source doesn't exist. (Taro
Files:      src/fileio.c

Patch 6.2.287 (after 6.2.264)

Solution:   Handle all modifiers for these keys.  (Eckehard Berns)
Files:      src/gui_mac.c

Patch 6.2.295
Problem:    When in debug mode, receiving a message from a remote client
            causes a crash.  Evaluating an expression causes Vim to wait for
            "cont" to be typed, without a prompt.  (Hari Krishna Dara)
Solution:   Disable debugging when evaluating an expression for a client.
            (Michael Geddes)  Don't try reading into the typeahead buffer when
            it may have been filled in another way.

            Python recursively. (Matthew Mueller)
Files:      src/if_python.c

Patch 6.2.298
Problem:    A change always sets the '. mark and an insert always sets the '^
            mark, even when this is not wanted.
            Cannot go back to the position of older changes without undoing
            those changes.
Solution:   Add the ":keepjumps" command modifier.
            Add the "g," and "g;" commands.

Solution:   Restore "restart_edit" after an insert command that was not typed.
            Avoid waiting with displaying the mode when there is no text to be
            Fix that "CTRL-O ." sometimes doesn't put the cursor back after
            the end-of-line.  Only reset the flag that CTRL-O was used past
            the end of the line when restarting editing.  Update "o_lnum"
            number when inserting text and "o_eol" is set.

Patch 6.2.311 (after 6.2.298)
Problem:    When making several changes in one line the changelist grows
            quickly.  There is no error message for reaching the end of the
            changelist.  Reading changelist marks from viminfo doesn't work
Solution:   Only make a new entry in the changelist when making a change in
            another line or 'textwidth' columns away.  Add E662, E663 and E664
            error messages.  Put a changelist mark from viminfo one position
            before the end.

            backslashes, while this pattern should only have forward slashes.
Solution:   Make expanding environment variables respect 'shellslash' and set
            p_ssl when expanding the autocommand pattern.
Files:      src/fileio.c, src/misc1.c, src/proto/fileio.pro

Patch 6.2.324 (extra)

Patch 6.2.327
Problem:    When formatting text all marks in the formatted lines are lost.
            A word is not joined to a previous line when this would be
            possible.  (Mikolaj Machowski)
Solution:   Try to keep marks in the same position as much as possible.
            Also keep mark positions when joining lines.
            Start auto-formatting in the previous line when appropriate.
            Add the "gw" operator: Like "gq" but keep the cursor where it is.

Patch 6.2.339
Problem:    Crash when using many different highlight groups and a User
            highlight group.  (Juergen Kraemer)

Solution:   Obtain the clipboard contents before displaying it.
Files:      src/ops.c

Patch 6.2.341 (extra)
Problem:    Win32: When the path to diff.exe contains a space and using the
            vimrc generated by the install program, diff mode does not work.
Solution:   Put the first double quote just before the space instead of before
            the path.
Files:      src/dosinst.c

Problem:    Title doesn't work with some window managers.  X11: Setting the
            text property for the window title is hard coded.
Solution:   Use STRING format when possible.  Use the UTF-8 function when
            it's available and 'encoding' is utf-8. Use
            XStringListToTextProperty().  Do the same for the icon name.

Patch 6.2.345 (extra)
Problem:    Win32: Copy/paste between two Vims fails if 'encoding' is not set
            properly or there are illegal bytes.
Solution:   Use a raw byte format.  Always set it when copying.  When pasting
            use the raw format if 'encoding' is the same.

Patch 6.2.349
Problem:    Finding a match using 'matchpairs' may cause a crash.
            'matchpairs' is not used for 'showmatch'.

Patch 6.2.355 (after 6.2.303)
Problem:    When 'encoding' is a double-byte encoding different from the
            current locale, the width of characters is not correct.
            Possible failure and memory leak when using iconv, Unicode
            digraphs and 'encoding' is not "utf-8".
Solution:   Use iconv() to discover the actual width of characters.
            Add the "vc_fail" field to vimconv_T.
            When converting a digraph, init the conversion type to NONE and
            cleanup afterwards.

Patch 6.2.356
Problem:    When using a double-byte 'encoding' and 'selection' is
            "exclusive", "vy" only yanks the first byte of a double-byte
            character.  (Xiangjiang Ma)
Solution:   Correct the column in unadjust_for_sel() to position on the first
            byte, always include the trailing byte of the selected text.

Patch 6.2.363
Problem:    In an empty file with 'showmode' off, "i" doesn't change the ruler
            from "0-1" to "1".  Typing "x<BS>" does show "1", but then <Esc>
            doesn't make it "0-1" again.  Same problem for ruler in
            statusline.  (Andrew Pimlott)
Solution:   Remember the "empty line" flag with Insert mode and'ed to it.
Files:      src/screen.c

Patch 6.2.364

            which is a problem for mbyte.txt.
Solution:   Adjust the awk script. (Ilya Sher)
Files:      runtime/doc/makehtml.awk

Patch 6.2.365

Patch 6.2.368
Problem:    When 'autochdir' is set, closing a window doesn't change to the
            directory of the new current window. (Salman Halim)
Solution:   Handle 'autochdir' always when a window becomes the current one.
Files:      src/window.c

Patch 6.2.369
Problem:    Various memory leaks: when using globpath(), when searching for
            help tags files, when defining a function inside a function, when
            giving an error message through an exception, for the final "."
            line in ":append", in expression "cond ? a : b" that fails and for
            missing ")" in an expression.  Using NULL pointer when adding
            first user command and for pointer computations with regexp.
            (tests by Dominique Pelle)
Solution:   Fix the leaks by freeing the allocated memory.  Don't use the
            array of user commands when there are no entries.  Use a macro
            instead of a function call for saving and restoring regexp states.

Patch 6.2.373
Problem:    When 'winminheight' is zero and a window is reduced to zero
            height, the ruler always says "Top" instead of the cursor
            position. (Antoine J. Mechelynck)
Solution:   Don't recompute w_topline for a zero-height window.
Files:      src/window.c

Patch 6.2.374
Problem:    ":echo "hello" | silent normal n" removes the "hello" message.
            (Servatius Brandt)

Problem:    DOS: "make test" fails when running it again.  Can't "make test"
            with Borland C.

Patch 6.2.381
Problem:    Setting 'fileencoding' to a comma separated list (confusing it
            with 'fileencodings') does not result in an error message.
            Setting 'fileencoding' in an empty file marks it as modified.
            There is no "+" in the title after setting 'fileencoding'.
Solution:   Check for a comma in 'fileencoding'.  Only consider a non-empty
            file modified by changing 'fileencoding'.  Update the title after
            changing 'fileencoding'.

Patch 6.2.385  (extra)
Problem:    Win32: forward_slash() and trash_input_buf() are undefined when
            compiling with small features. (Ajit Thakkar)
Solution:   Change the #ifdefs for forward_slash().  Don't call
            trash_input_buf() if the input buffer isn't used.
Files:      src/fileio.c, src/os_win32.c

Patch 6.2.386
Problem:    Wasting time trying to read marks from the viminfo file for a
            buffer without a name.
Solution:   Skip reading marks when the buffer has no name.
Files:      src/fileio.c

Patch 6.2.387
Problem:    There is no highlighting of translated items in help files.
Solution:   Search for a "help_ab.vim" syntax file when the help file is
            called "*.abx".  Also improve the help highlighting a bit.
Files:      runtime/syntax/help.vim

Patch 6.2.388
Problem:    GTK: When displaying some double-width characters they are drawn
            as single-width, because of conversion to UTF-8.
Solution:   Check the width that GTK uses and add a space if it's one instead
            of two.
Files:      src/gui_gtk_x11.c

Patch 6.2.389
Problem:    When working over a slow connection, it's very annoying that the
            last line is partly drawn and then cleared for every change.
Solution:   Don't redraw the bottom line if no rows were inserted or deleted.
            Don't draw the line if we know "@" lines will be used.
Files:      src/screen.c

Patch 6.2.390
Problem:    Using "r*" in Visual mode on multi-byte characters only replaces
            every other character. (Tyson Roberts)
Solution:   Correct the cursor position after replacing each character.
Files:      src/ops.c

Patch 6.2.391 (extra)
Problem:    The ":highlight" command is not tested.
Solution:   Add a test script for ":highlight".

Patch 6.2.392 (after 6.2.384)
Problem:    Unused variable.
Solution:   Remove "dlen".
Files:      src/menu.c

Patch 6.2.393
Problem:    When using very long lines the viminfo file can become very big.
Solution:   Add the "s" flag to 'viminfo': skip registers with more than the
            specified Kbyte of text.
Files:      runtime/doc/options.txt, src/ops.c, src/option.c

Patch 6.2.394  (after 6.2.391)
Problem:    Test 51 fails on a terminal with 8 colors. (Tony Leneis)
Solution:   Use "DarkBlue" instead of "Blue" to avoid the "bold" attribute.
Files:      src/testdir/test51.in

Patch 6.2.395
Problem:    When using ":tag" or ":pop" the previous matching tag is used.
            But since the current file is different, the ordering of the tags
            may change.
Solution:   Remember what the current buffer was for when re-using cur_match.
Files:      src/edit.c, src/ex_cmds.c, src/proto/tag.pro, src/structs.h,

Patch 6.2.396
Problem:    When CTRL-T jumps to another file and an autocommand moves the
            cursor to the '" mark, don't end up on the right line.  (Michal
Solution:   Set the line number after loading the file.
Files:      src/tag.c

Patch 6.2.397
Problem:    When using a double-byte 'encoding' mapping <M-x> doesn't work.
            (Yasuhiro Matsumoto)
Solution:   Do not set the 8th bit of the character but use a modifier.
Files:      src/gui_gtk_x11.c, src/gui_x11.c, src/misc2.c

Patch 6.2.398 (extra)
Problem:    Win32 console: no extra key modifiers are supported.
Solution:   Encode the modifiers into the input stream.  Also fix that special
            keys are converted and stop working when 'tenc' is set.  Also fix
            that when 'tenc' is initialized the input and output conversion is
            not setup properly until 'enc' or 'tenc' is set.
Files:      src/getchar.c, src/option.c, src/os_win32.c

Patch 6.2.399
Problem:    A ":set" command that fails still writes a message when it is
            inside a try/catch block.
Solution:   Include all the text of the message in the error message.
Files:      src/charset.c, src/option.c

Patch 6.2.400
Problem:    Can't compile if_xcmdsrv.c on HP-UX 11.0.
Solution:   Include header file poll.h. (Malte Neumann)
Files:      src/if_xcmdsrv.c

Patch 6.2.401
Problem:    When opening a buffer that was previously opened, Vim does not
            restore the cursor position if the first line starts with white
            space.  (Gregory Margo)
Solution:   Don't skip restoring the cursor position if it is past the blanks
            in the first line.
Files:      src/buffer.c

Patch 6.2.402
Problem:    Mac: "make install" doesn't generate help tags. (Benji Fisher)
Solution:   Generate help tags before copying the runtime files.
Files:      src/Makefile

Patch 6.2.403
Problem:    ":@y" checks stdin if there are more commands to execute.  This
            fails if stdin is not connected, e.g., when starting the GUI from
            KDE. (Ned Konz)
Solution:   Only check for a next command if there still is typeahead.
Files:      src/ex_docmd.c

Patch 6.2.404
Problem:    Our own function to determine width of Unicode characters may get
            outdated. (Markus Kuhn)
Solution:   Use wcwidth() when it is available.  Also use iswprint().
Files:      src/auto/configure, src/configure.in, src/config.h.in, src/mbyte.c

Patch 6.2.405
Problem:    Cannot map zero without breaking the count before a command.
            (Benji Fisher)
Solution:   Disable mapping zero when entering a count.
Files:      src/getchar.c, src/globals.h, src/normal.c

Patch 6.2.406
Problem:    ":help \zs", ":help \@=" and similar don't find useful help.
Solution:   Prepend "/\" to the arguments to find the desired help tag.
Files:      src/ex_cmds.c

Patch 6.2.407 (after 6.2.299)
Problem:    ":help \@<=" doesn't find help.
Solution:   Avoid that ":help \@<=" searches for the "<=" language.
Files:      src/tag.c

Patch 6.2.408
Problem:    ":compiler" is not consistent: Sets local options and a global
            variable. (Douglas Potts)  There is no error message when a
            compiler is not supported.
Solution:   Use ":compiler!" to set a compiler globally, otherwise it's local
            to the buffer and "b:current_compiler" is used.  Give an error
            when no compiler script could be found.
            Note: updated compiler plugins can be found at
Files:      runtime/compiler/msvc.vim, runtime/doc/quickfix.txt, src/eval.c,

Patch 6.2.409
Problem:    The cursor ends up in the last column instead of after the line
            when doing "i//<Esc>o" with 'indentexpr' set to "cindent(v:lnum)".
            (Toby Allsopp)
Solution:   Adjust the cursor as if in Insert mode.
Files:      src/misc1.c

Patch 6.2.410 (after 6.2.389)
Problem:    In diff mode, when there are more filler lines than fit in the
            window, they are not drawn.
Solution:   Check for filler lines when skipping to draw a line that doesn't
Files:      src/screen.c

Patch 6.2.411
Problem:    A "\n" inside a string is not seen as a line break by the regular
            expression matching. (Hari Krishna Dara)
Solution:   Add the vim_regexec_nl() function for strings where "\n" is to be
            matched with a line break.
Files:      src/eval.c, src/ex_eval.c, src/proto/regexp.c, src/regexp.c

Patch 6.2.412
Problem:    Ruby: "ruby << EOF" inside a function doesn't always work.  Also
            for ":python", ":tcl" and ":perl".
Solution:   Check for "<< marker" and skip until "marker" before checking for
Files:      src/eval.c

Patch 6.2.413 (after 6.2.411)
Problem:    Missing prototype for vim_regexec_nl(). (Marcel Svitalsky)
Solution:   Now really include the prototype.
Files:      src/proto/regexp.pro

Patch 6.2.414
Problem:    The function used for custom completion of user commands cannot
            have <SID> to make it local. (Hari Krishna Dara)
Solution:   Pass the SID of the script where the user command was defined on
            to the completion.  Also clean up #ifdefs.
Files:      src/ex_docmd.c, src/eval.c, src/ex_getln.c, src/structs.h

Patch 6.2.415
Problem:    Vim may crash after a sequence of events that change the window
            size.  The window layout assumes a larger window than is actually
            available. (Servatius Brandt)
Solution:   Invoke win_new_shellsize() from screenalloc() instead of from
Files:      src/screen.c, src/term.c

Patch 6.2.416
Problem:    Compiler warning for incompatible pointer.
Solution:   Remove the "&" in the call to poll(). (Xavier de Gaye)
Files:      src/os_unix.c

Patch 6.2.417 (after 6.2.393)
Problem:    Many people forget that the '"' item in 'viminfo' needs to be
            preceded with a backslash,
Solution:   Add '<' as an alias for the '"' item.
Files:      runtime/doc/options.txt, src/ops.c, src/option.c

Patch 6.2.418
Problem:    Using ":nnoremap <F12> :echo "cheese" and ":cabbr cheese xxx":
            when pressing <F12> still uses the abbreviation. (Hari Krishna)
Solution:   Also apply "noremap" to abbreviations.
Files:      src/getchar.c

Patch 6.2.419 (extra)
Problem:    Win32: Cannot open the Vim window inside another application.
Solution:   Add the "-P" argument to specify the window title of the
            application to run inside. (Zibo Zhao)

Patch 6.2.420
Problem:    Cannot specify a file to be edited in binary mode without setting
            the global value of the 'binary' option.
Solution:   Support ":edit ++bin file".

            src/ex_docmd.c, src/fileio.c, src/misc2.c

Patch 6.2.421
Problem:    Cannot set the '[ and '] mark, which may be necessary when an
            autocommand simulates reading a file.
Solution:   Allow using "m[" and "m]".
Files:      runtime/doc/motion.txt, src/mark.c

Patch 6.2.422
Problem:    In CTRL-X completion messages the "/" makes them less readable.
Solution:   Remove the slashes. (Antony Scriven)
Files:      src/edit.c

Patch 6.2.423
Problem:    ":vertical wincmd ]" does not split vertically.
Solution:   Add "postponed_split_flags".
Files:      src/ex_docmd.c, src/globals.h, src/if_cscope.c, src/tag.c

Patch 6.2.424
Problem:    A BufEnter autocommand that sets an option stops 'mousefocus' from
            working in Insert mode (Normal mode is OK). (Gregory Seidman)
Solution:   In the Insert mode loop invoke gui_mouse_correct() when needed.
Files:      src/edit.c

Patch 6.2.425
Problem:    Vertical split and command line window: can only drag status line
            above the cmdline window on the righthand side, not lefthand side.
Solution:   Check the status line row instead of the window pointer.
Files:      src/ui.c

Patch 6.2.426
Problem:    A syntax region end match with a matchgroup that includes a line
            break only highlights the last line with matchgroup. (Gary
Solution:   Also use the line number of the position where the region
            highlighting ends.
Files:      src/syntax.c

Patch 6.2.427 (extra)
Problem:    When pasting a lot of text in a multi-byte encoding, conversion
            from 'termencoding' to 'encoding' may fail for some characters.
            (Kuang-che Wu)
Solution:   When there is an incomplete byte sequence at the end of the read
            text keep it for the next time.
Files:      src/mbyte.c, src/os_amiga.c, src/os_mswin.c, src/proto/mbyte.pro,
            src/proto/os_mswin.pro, src/ui.c

Patch 6.2.428
Problem:    The X11 clipboard supports the Vim selection for char/line/block
            mode, but since the encoding is not included  can't copy/paste
            between two Vims with a different 'encoding'.
Solution:   Add a new selection format that includes the 'encoding'.  Perform
            conversion when necessary.
Files:      src/gui_gtk_x11.c, src/ui.c, src/vim.h

Patch 6.2.429
Problem:    Unix: glob() doesn't work for a directory with a single quote in
            the name. (Nazri Ramliy)
Solution:   When using the shell to expand, only put double quotes around
            spaces and single quotes, not the whole thing.
Files:      src/os_unix.c

Patch 6.2.430
Problem:    BOM at start of a vim script file is not recognized and causes an
            error message.
Solution:   Detect the BOM and skip over it.  Also fix that after using
            ":scriptencoding" the iconv() file descriptor was not closed
            (memory leak).
Files:      src/ex_cmds2.c

Patch 6.2.431
Problem:    When using the horizontal scrollbar, the scrolling is limited to
            the length of the cursor line.
Solution:   Make the scroll limit depend on the longest visible line.  The
            cursor is moved when necessary.  Including the 'h' flag in
            'guioptions' disables this.

Patch 6.2.433
Problem:    Translating "VISUAL" and "BLOCK" separately doesn't give a good
            result. (Alejandro Lopez Valencia)
Solution:   Use a string for each combination.

Files:      src/gui.c

Patch 6.2.435
Problem:    When there are vertically split windows the minimal Vim window
            height is computed wrong.
Solution:   Use frame_minheight() to correctly compute the minimal height.
Files:      src/window.c

Patch 6.2.436
Problem:    Running the tests changes the user's viminfo file.
Solution:   In test 49 tell the extra Vim to use the test viminfo file.
Files:      src/testdir/test49.vim

Patch 6.2.437
Problem:    ":mksession" always puts "set nocompatible" in the session file.
            This changes option settings. (Ron Aaron)
Solution:   Add an "if" to only change 'compatible' when needed.
Files:      src/ex_docmd.c

Patch 6.2.438
Problem:    When the 'v' flag is present in 'cpoptions', backspacing and then
            typing text again: one character too much is overtyped before
            inserting is done again.
Solution:   Set "dollar_vcol" to the right column.
Files:      src/edit.c

Patch 6.2.439
Problem:    GTK 2: Changing 'lines' may cause a mismatch between the window
            layout and the size of the window.
Solution:   Disable the hack with force_shell_resize_idle().

Patch 6.2.440
Problem:    When 'lazyredraw' is set the window title is still updated.
            The size of the Visual area and the ruler are displayed too often.
Solution:   Postpone redrawing the window title.  Only show the Visual area
            size when waiting for a character.  Don't draw the ruler
Files:      src/buffer.c, src/normal.c, src/screen.c

Patch 6.2.441
Problem:    ":unabbreviate foo " doesn't work, because of the trailing space,
            while an abbreviation with a trailing space is not possible. (Paul
Solution:   Accept a match with the lhs of an abbreviation without the
            trailing space.
Files:      src/getchar.c

Patch 6.2.442
Problem:    Cannot manipulate the command line from a function.
Solution:   Add getcmdline(), getcmdpos() and setcmdpos() functions and the

Patch 6.2.443
Problem:    With ":silent! echoerr something" you don't get the position of
            the error.  emsg() only writes the message itself and returns.
Solution:   Also redirect the position of the error.
Files:      src/message.c

Patch 6.2.444
Problem:    When adding the 'c' flag to a ":substitute" command it may replace
            more times than without the 'c' flag.  Happens for a  match that
            starts with "\ze" (Marcel Svitalsk) and when using "\@<=" (Klaus
Solution:   Correct "prev_matchcol" when replacing the line.  Don't replace
            the line when the pattern uses look-behind matching.
Files:      src/ex_cmds.c, src/proto/regexp.pro, src/regexp.c

Patch 6.2.445
Problem:    Copying vimtutor to /tmp/something is not secure, a symlink may
            cause trouble.
Solution:   Create a directory and create the file in it.  Use "umask" to
            create the directory with mode 700.  (Stefan Nordhausen)
Files:      src/vimtutor

Patch 6.2.446 (after 6.2.404)

Solution:   Disable the code to use the library functions, use our own.
Files:      src/mbyte.c

Patch 6.2.447 (after 6.2.440)
Problem:    Now that the title is only updated when redrawing, it is no longer
            possible to show it while executing a function. (Madoka Machitani)
Solution:   Make ":redraw" also update the title.
Files:      src/ex_docmd.c

Patch 6.2.448 (after 6.2.427)
Problem:    Mac: conversion done when 'termencoding' differs from 'encoding'

Solution:   Check for an incomplete sequence at the end of the chunk to be
            converted. (Eckehard Berns)
Files:      src/mbyte.c

Patch 6.2.449 (after 6.2.431)

Patch 6.2.451
Problem:    GTK: when using XIM there are various problems, including setting
            'modified' and breaking undo at the wrong moment.

Patch 6.2.452
Problem:    In diff mode, when DiffAdd and DiffText highlight settings are
            equal, an added line is highlighted with DiffChange. (Tom Schumm)
Solution:   Remember the diff highlight type instead of the attributes.
Files:      src/screen.c

Patch 6.2.453
Problem:    ":s/foo\|\nbar/x/g" does not replace two times in "foo\nbar".
            (Pavel Papushev)
Solution:   When the pattern can match a line break also try matching at the
            NUL at the end of a line.

Patch 6.2.457 (after 6.2.244)
Problem:    When 'encoding' is "utf-8" and writing text with chars above 0x80
            in latin1, conversion is wrong every 8200 bytes. (Oyvind Holm)
Solution:   Correct the utf_ptr2len_check_len() function and fix the problem
            of displaying 0xf7 in utfc_ptr2len_check_len().

Problem:    Compiler warnings for missing prototypes.
Solution:   Include the missing prototypes.
Files:      src/proto/os_win32.pro

Patch 6.2.461
Problem:    After using a search command "x" starts putting single characters
            in the numbered registers.
Solution:   Reset "use_reg_one" at the right moment.
Files:      src/normal.c

Patch 6.2.462
Problem:    Finding a matching parenthesis does not correctly handle a
            backslash in a trailing byte.
Solution:   Handle multi-byte characters correctly. (Taro Muraoka)
Files:      src/search.c

Patch 6.2.463 (extra)
Problem:    Win32: An NTFS file system may contain files with extra info
            streams.  The current method to copy them creates one and then
            deletes it again.  (Peter Toennies)  Also, only three streams with
            hard coded names are copied.
Solution:   Use BackupRead() to check which info streams the original file
            contains and only copy these streams.
Files:      src/os_win32.c

Patch 6.2.464 (extra, after 6.2.427)
Problem:    Amiga: Compilation error with gcc. (Ali Akcaagac)
Solution:   Move the #ifdef outside of Read().
Files:      src/os_amiga.c

Patch 6.2.465
Problem:    When resizing the GUI window the window manager sometimes moves it
            left of or above the screen. (Michael McCarty)
Solution:   Check the window position after resizing it and move it onto the
            screen when it isn't.
Files:      src/gui.c

Patch 6.2.466 (extra, after 6.2.456)
Problem:    Win32: Compiling with Borland C fails, and an un/signed warning.

Files:      src/os_win32.c

Patch 6.2.467 (extra, after 6.2.463)
Problem:    Win32: can't compile without multi-byte feature. (Ajit Thakkar)
Solution:   Add #ifdefs around the info stream code.
Files:      src/os_win32.c

Patch 6.2.468
Problem:    Compiler warnings for shadowed variables. (Matthias Mohr)
Solution:   Delete superfluous variables and rename others.

            src/fold.c, src/option.c, src/os_unix.c, src/quickfix.c,

Patch 6.2.469 (extra, after 6.2.456)
Problem:    Win32: Can't create swap file when 'encoding' differs from the
            active code page. (Kriton Kyrimis)
Solution:   In enc_to_ucs2() terminate the converted string with a NUL
Files:      src/os_mswin.c

Patch 6.2.470
Problem:    The name returned by tempname() may be equal to the file used for
            shell output when ignoring case.
Solution:   Skip 'O' and 'I' in tempname().
Files:      src/eval.c

Patch 6.2.471
Problem:    "-L/usr/lib" is used in the link command, even though it's
            supposed to be filtered out. "-lw" and "-ldl" are not
            automatically added when needed for "-lXmu". (Antonio Colombo)
Solution:   Check for a space after the argument instead of before.  Also
            remove "-R/usr/lib" if it's there.  Check for "-lw" and "-ldl"
            before trying "-lXmu".
Files:      src/auto/configure, src/configure.in, src/link.sh

Patch 6.2.472
Problem:    When using a FileChangedShell autocommand that changes the current
            buffer, a buffer exists that can't be wiped out.
            Also, Vim sometimes crashes when executing an external command
            that changes the buffer and a FileChangedShell autocommand is
            used.  (Hari Krishna Dara)
            Users are confused by the warning for a file being changed outside
            of Vim.
Solution:   Avoid that the window counter for a buffer is incremented twice.
            Avoid that buf_check_timestamp() is used recursively.
            Add a hint to look in the help for more info.
Files:      src/ex_cmds.c, src/fileio.c

Patch 6.2.473
Problem:    Using CTRL-] in a help buffer without a name causes a crash.
Solution:   Check for name to be present before using it. (Taro Muraoka)
Files:      src/tag.c

Patch 6.2.474 (extra, after 6.2.456)
Problem:    When Vim is starting up conversion is done unnecessarily.  Failure
            to find the runtime files on Windows 98. (Randall W. Morris)
Solution:   Init enc_codepage negative, only use it when not negative.
            Don't use GetFileAttributesW() on Windows 98 or earlier.
Files:      src/globals.h, src/gui_w32.c, src/gui_w48.c, src/os_mswin.c,

Patch 6.2.475
Problem:    Commands after "perl <<EOF" are parsed as Vim commands when they
            are not executed.
Solution:   Properly skip over the perl commands.
Files:      src/ex_docmd.c, src/ex_getln.c, src/if_perl.xs, src/if_python.c,
            src/if_ruby.c, src/if_tcl.c, src/misc2.c

Patch 6.2.476
Problem:    When reloading a hidden buffer changed outside of Vim and the
            current buffer is read-only, the reloaded buffer becomes
            read-only.  (Hari Krishna Dara)
Solution:   Save the 'readonly' flag of the reloaded buffer instead of the
            current buffer.
Files:      src/fileio.c

Patch 6.2.477
Problem:    Using remote_send(v:servername, "\<C-V>") causes Vim to hang.
            (Yakov Lerner)
Solution:   When the resulting string is empty don't set received_from_client.
Files:      src/main.c

Patch 6.2.478
Problem:    Win32: "--remote file" fails changing directory if the current
            directory name starts with a single quote.  (Iestyn Walters)
Solution:   Add a backslash where it will be removed later.
Files:      src/main.c, src/misc2.c, src/proto/misc2.pro

Patch 6.2.479
Problem:    The error message for errors during recovery goes unnoticed.
Solution:   Avoid that the hit-enter prompt overwrites the message.  Add a few
            lines to make the error stand out.
Files:      src/main.c, src/message.c, src/memline.c

Patch 6.2.480
Problem:    NetBeans: Using negative index in array.  backslash at end of
            message may cause Vim to crash. (Xavier de Gaye)
Solution:   Initialize buf_list_used to zero. Check for trailing backslash.
Files:      src/netbeans.c

Patch 6.2.481
Problem:    When writing a file it is not possible to specify that hard and/or
            symlinks are to be broken instead of preserved.
Solution:   Add the "breaksymlink" and "breakhardlink" values to 'backupcopy'.
            (Simon Ekstrand)

Patch 6.2.482
Problem:    Repeating insert of CTRL-K 1 S doesn't work.  The superscript 1 is
            considered to be a digit. (Juergen Kraemer)
Solution:   In vim_isdigit() only accept '0' to '9'.  Use VIM_ISDIGIT() for
            speed where possible.  Also add vim_isxdigit().

Patch 6.2.484
Problem:    MS-Windows: With the included diff.exe, differences after a CTRL-Z
            are not recognized.  (Peter Keresztes)
Solution:   Write the files with unix fileformat and invoke diff with --binary
            if possible.
Files:      src/diff.c

Patch 6.2.485
Problem:    A BufWriteCmd autocommand cannot know if "!" was used or not.

Problem:    Missing ")" in *.ch filetype detection.
Solution:   Add the ")".  (Ciaran McCreesh)
Files:      runtime/filetype.vim

Patch 6.2.489
Problem:    When accidentally opening a session in Vim which has already been
            opened in another Vim there is a long row of ATTENTION prompts.
            Need to quit each of them to get out. (Robert Webb)
Solution:   Add the "Abort" alternative to the dialog.
Files:      src/memline.c

Patch 6.2.490
Problem:    With 'paragraph' it is not possible to use a single dot as a
            paragraph boundary.  (Dorai Sitaram)
Solution:   Allow using "  " (two spaces) in 'paragraph' to match ".$" or
            ". $"
Files:      src/search.c

Patch 6.2.491
Problem:    Decrementing a position doesn't take care of multi-byte chars.

Files:      src/mbyte.c, src/misc2.c, src/proto/mbyte.pro

Patch 6.2.492
Problem:    When using ":redraw" while there is a message, the next ":echo"
            still causes text to scroll. (Yasuhiro Matsumoto)
Solution:   Reset msg_didout and msg_col, so that after ":redraw" the next
            message overwrites an existing one.
Files:      src/ex_docmd.c

Patch 6.2.493
Problem:    "@x" doesn't work when 'insertmode' is set. (Benji Fisher)
Solution:   Put "restart_edit" in the typeahead buffer, so that it's used
            after executing the register contents.
Files:      src/ops.c

Patch 6.2.494
Problem:    Using diff mode with two windows, when moving horizontally in
            inserted lines, a fold in the other window may open.
Solution:   Compute the line number in the other window correctly.
Files:      src/diff.c

Patch 6.2.495 (extra, after 6.2.456)
Problem:    Win32: The file dialog doesn't work on Windows 95.
Solution:   Put the wide code of gui_mch_browse() in gui_mch_browseW() and use
            it only on Windows NT/2000/XP.

Patch 6.2.496
Problem:    FreeBSD 4.x: When compiled with the pthread library (Python) a
            complicated pattern may cause Vim to crash.  Catching the signal
            doesn't work.
Solution:   When compiled with threads, instead of using the normal stacksize
            limit, use the size of the initial stack.

Patch 6.2.503
Problem:    Mac: Can't compile MacRoman conversions without the GUI.
Solution:   Also link with the Carbon framework for the terminal version, for
            the MacRoman conversion functions. (Eckehard Berns)
            Remove -ltermcap from the GUI link command, it is not needed.
Files:      src/auto/configure, src/Makefile, src/configure.in

Patch 6.2.504
Problem:    Various problems with 'cindent', among which that a
            list of variable declarations is not indented properly.
Solution:   Fix the wrong indenting.  Improve indenting of C++ methods.
            Add the 'i', 'b' and 'W' options to 'cinoptions'. (mostly by
            Helmut Stiegler)
            Improve indenting of preprocessor-continuation lines.

Patch 6.2.505
Problem:    Help for -P argument is missing. (Ronald Hoellwarth)
Solution:   Add the patch that was missing in 6.2.419.
Files:      runtime/doc/starting.txt

Patch 6.2.506 (extra)
Problem:    Win32: When 'encoding' is a codepage then reading a utf-8 file
            only works when iconv is available.  Writing a file in another
            codepage uses the wrong kind of conversion.
Solution:   Use internal conversion functions.  Enable reading and writing
            files with 'fileencoding' different from 'encoding' for all valid
            codepages and utf-8 without the need for iconv.
Files:      src/fileio.c, src/testdir/Make_dos.mak, src/testdir/test52.in,

Patch 6.2.507
Problem:    The ownership of the file with the password for the NetBeans
            connection is not checked.  "-nb={file}" doesn't work for GTK.
Solution:   Only accept the file when owned by the user and not accessible by
            others.  Detect "-nb=" for GTK.
Files:      src/netbeans.c, src/gui_gtk_x11.c

Patch 6.2.508
Problem:    Win32: "v:lang" does not show the current language for messages if
            it differs from the other locale settings.
Solution:   Use the value of the $LC_MESSAGES environment variable.
Files:      src/ex_cmds2.c

Patch 6.2.509 (after 6.2.508)
Problem:    Crash when $LANG is not set.
