Vim is Vi IMproved, a clone of the classic Unix text editor, vi. I have used vi in one form or another for 20 years. I have contributed to the Vim open source project on and off since the mid-1990s. Most notably, I wrote a lot of the Win32 console-mode support in Vim 4.x; I also built the first proof-of-concept implementation of Win32 gvim for Vim 5.0. Latterly, I ported Vim to Win64.

FlexWiki plugin

I have created a plugin for FlexWiki, which adds syntax highlighting. FlexWiki is an ASP.NET-based wiki.

Socialtext Wiki plugin

I have created a plugin for Socialtext Wiki, which adds syntax highlighting. Socialtext is an Open Source wiki.

PBwiki plugin

I have created a plugin for PBwiki, which adds syntax highlighting. PBwiki is a popular free, hosted wiki.

Win64 binaries

I have ported Vim to run natively on Win64, the 64-bit flavors of Windows. The Win32 vim.exe and gvim.exe have always run on Win64, but things like the "Edit with Vim" shell extension didn't work.

2008/8/9. With the release of Vim 7.2, I have moved the binaries to the vim-win3264 project at Google Code.
