vim 9.0 has been released. I haven’t done much with it, but I did immediately go and enable the new popup menu for autocompletions. It’s so much nicer than having the autocompletion options running horizontally across the screen.
The new popup menu looks like this:
Here are the relevant lines from my
set wildchar=<Tab> set wildmenu if v:version >= 900 " Set popup menu set wildoptions=pum endif set wildmode=longest:full,full set wildignore=*~,#*#,*.sw?,*.o,*.class,.viminfo,*.pdf,*.mp3,*.gz,*.tgz,*.gif,*.jpg,*.png
The new thing is:
if v:version >= 900 " Set popup menu set wildoptions=pum endif
I check the vim version because not everyone machine I work on is using vim 9 yet.
