"Neovim is an effort to aggressively re-factor the Vim source code and improve on:

  • It will provide first class support for embedding.
  • It lets you extend the editor in any programming language.
  • It supports more powerful GUIs.
  • Vim plugins will work with it.

Hosted on Bounty Source it has reached $25,500 of it's goal of $10,000, although there are still 3 days to reach further stretch goals! You can view the projects current progress and even pitch in over at GitHub. As someone who has started using Vim full-time over the last 6 months I feel that this is a very good project for the longevity of Vim."

    Unnecessary: You can already run vim inside of emacs, by using "M-x term". Emacs will prompt you with "Run program:", and then you enter in /usr/bin/vim (or wherever you have one), and poof, you now have vim running in emacs.

    The only thing that stops a bad guy with a compiler is a good guy with a compiler.

    That's fine, as I can the type !emacs from vim, and up pops emacs.
