Upgrade vim machine

Vim-config on Mac OS X. GitHub Gist: instantly share code, notes, and snippets. A new release of Vim is available. 'This is a stable version. There are many bug fixes and updated runtime files. The only new feature worth mentioning is support for floating point. Upgrading from a previous version is highly recommended: a few crashing bugs and several security issues were fixed.' Run brew link macvim You now have the latest versions of vim and macvim managed by brew. Run brew update && brew upgrade every once in a while to upgrade them. This includes the installation of the CLI mvim and the mac application (which both point to the same thing). The command, command -v vim, shows the alias was created when its output is as follows. Alias vim=/usr/local/bin/vim The same VIM RC files are used by both versions of vim. The advantage of pointing to the symbolic link instead of the binary executable is that the alias does not need to be updated on each upgrade of MacVim, which is often.
