Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A

Details

Updated vim packages that fix multiple bugs are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.

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#594997)

* The spec file template that was used when new spec files were edited contained
outdated information. With this update, the spec file template is updated to
adhere to the latest spec file guidelines. (BZ#634902)

* 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#652610)

* Due to a typographic error in the filetype plug-in, the vim utility could
display the httpd configuration files with incorrect syntax highlighting. This
update corrects the errors in the filetype plug-in, and the httpd configuration
files are now displayed with the correct syntax highlighting. (BZ#663753)

All users of vim are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix
these bugs.
