VIM 7.0 Released with x64 Binaries

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by Charlie Russel - MVP, Jun 8, 2006.

  1. My favourite editor, VIM (http://www.vim.org), has always worked quite well
    under x64 Edition, but I've been hoping someone would port it to native
    64bit. Well, with the release of VIM 7.0 (and what a huge upgrade this is,
    lots of cool new stuff), there is now a native 64bit version. In fact, there
    are two - one for x64, and one for IA64, both available at:
    http://georgevreilly.com/vim/. Thanks for doing the port, George!

    Nice to see x64 support. IA64 support as well is even more impressive. A
    s/w vendor like that deserves a shot at our business just for making the
    effort!

  3. I'm not sure vendor is the correct term here. Vim is Open Source and freely
    distributed as "charity ware". If you use it regularly you're asked to
    donate to Uganda children's organizations. George Reilly did the port to x64
    and IA64. Vi was always my editor of choice, and Vim just makes it so much
    better.
