Description

LSAC(v2)
Vim (Vi IMproved) is an updated and improved version of the vi editor. This update fixes the following bugs: * Previously, when using the VimExplorer file manager with the locale set to Simplified Chinese (zh_CN), the netrw.vim script inserted an unwanted "e" character in front of file names. The underlying code has been modified so that file names are now displayed correctly, without unwanted characters. (BZ#591578) * Under certain circumstances, when doing completion in Vim, the text editor entered a recursive function call without returning and stopped responding to user input. With this update, a patch has been applied to prevent such a recursive loop. (BZ#681108) * When using the file explorer in a subdirectory of the root directory, the "vim .." command displayed only part of the root directory's content. A patch has been applied to address this issue, and the "vim .." command now lists the content of the root directory properly in the described scenario. (BZ#825307) All users of vim are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
