Updates to unstable update site

I've hit my stride with a two-month release cycle so I'm also trying to make a habit of posting status updates once a month. In addition to the usual requests for more Vim features, in the last month I received a couple requests for features which aren't in Vim but our users wanted anyway.

The unstable update site currently has the following changes:

  • Add support for '\c' and '\C' in search to temporarily override ignorecase setting
  • Add support for '_' motion
  • Add support for ':e!' to revert file
  • Add support for "0-"9 and "- delete and yank registers
  • Add support for ':maximize' command to maximize editor area
  • Add support for ':copy' and ':move' operations
    • Useful with line range operations ':10,20 copy 140'
  • Add support for ':vim' command
    • Launches current file in gvim (so you can do things Vrapper doesn't support)
    • After saving and quitting gvim, Eclipse will reload the file
    • Path to gvim is defined by 'gvimpath' property (defaults to /usr/bin/gvim)
  • Refactored XML text object parsing to be more compliant with Vim
