Vifm v0.8.1 betaJanuary 02, 2016

New minor version delivers primarily various small improvements of different kinds. There is also improvement of navigation via named bookmarks (or tags), which can ease keeping track of what is where, and an ability to apply settings to specific directories or sub-trees (via combination of autocommands and local options).

The beta stage will last about two weeks. In case any serious bugs are found during this period, another beta version might be released.

Main changes
  • Added local options, which work until directory change.
  • Added named bookmarks (paths are associated with tags).
  • Added autocommands (with DirEnter event).
  • Added ability to sort by regexp-extracted part of file name.
  • Added builtin directory preview (similar to tree).
  • Added a way to communicate menu contents to Vim quickfix.
  • IPC got new (safe) implementation with listing/targeting of active instances, it's enabled by default again.
  • Updating local view settings from vifmrc now affects both panes (:windo is not necessary).
  • More predictive cursor updates on directory reload.
  • Improvements related to expression and command parsing.
