New version of ViEmu/Xcode, and new ViEmu for VS2013-preview

Saturday, July 27th, 2013

Just published two new versions of ViEmu:

ViEmu for Xcode 3.1.1 (

  • Fixed an issue with improper handling of an ObjC ref that could cause a required object to be collected by GC and a subsequent crash
  • Ctrl-] emulation to go to definition of a symbol or open an included file
  • Added settings: activate/deactivate beeps, and configure color of the visual region and the caret

ViEmu for VS2013 preview ( It’s now a separate build which installs only for VS2013 (not for other versions of Visual studio. Since VS2013 itself is not official yet, take this as a “preview build”, which allows testing and ensures releasing the official one will now be quick once VS2013 is released.

We are already working in new versions of ViEmu for Xcode, including ViEmu for Xcode 5, and also new versions of all ViEmus with more vi/vim emulation features. Stay tuned…
