"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."

    I really like Cream for Vim.

    from the Wikipedia page ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cream_(software) [wikipedia.org] )--
    "Cream is a configuration of the Vim text editor that consists of a set of scripts which can be run within Vim to make it behave"...

    or Cream's 'home' page:

    "A modern configuration of the powerful and famous Vim, Cream is for Microsoft Windows, GNU/Linux, and FreeBSD."

    Works great for me... probably a good variant for people who like their apps more 'GUIfied'. :)
