*** Cream (for Vim) Version 0.31 Released ***
The Cream (for Vim) project (http://cream.sourceforge.net) has
released the latest version of an easy-to-use configuration for Vim.
Cream configures the famous and free Vim text editor so that it is
simple to use for those of us familiar with Apple or Windows platform
software. Through intuitive menus, keyboard shortcuts, and extensive
editing functions, Cream makes Vim approachable for new users and adds
powerful features for experienced users on both Windows and Linux.
This major release features a re-worked spell check loader and greatly
enhanced German, French and Spanish dictionaries to provide a better
scale of speed vs. words checked. NOTE: If you have ever downloaded
supplemental spell check dictionaries, you will need to upgrade them
with the new ones on the site.
Other refinements include better user profiling on Windows, more
keymap options, horizontal scrollbar when text is wrapped, a new
filename stamp add-on, improvements to word counting, installation
script polishes, and many bug fixes.
