Notes from UPDATING
These upgrade notes are taken from /usr/ports/UPDATING
  • 2018-01-11
    Affects: users of editors/vim-lite
      The vim-lite port has been renamed to vim-console, because it isn't
      actually any lighter. All three vim packages are built with
      --enable-features=huge. Portmaster users will need to run this
      	portmaster -o editors/vim-console editors/vim-lite
      If the switch doesn't happen automatically for you, just delete the
      vim-lite package and install vim-console.
Port Moves
  • port moved to editors/vim-console on 2018-01-11

Rename editors/vim-lite to editors/vim-console. The vim-console port isn't
actually any lighter---it's built with exactly the same feature-set as
the main vim port. The only difference is lack of gtk20 GUI, and the
language bindings are off by default.

An UPDATING entry is included.

Add editors/vim-tiny.

By popular request, this is a slave port that installs only the vim binary. It
no dependencies, produces a 1 MB package with a 3 MB installed footprint, and
is unable to do anything except edit files. It contains no help files, no
files, no syntax highlighting, no filetype-specific indenting, non-US keymaps,
macros, or spell-checking.

vim-tiny is designed for minimal installs, and is the wrong choice for most

Simplify the "lite" package even more

Make the only differences between "lite" and "regular" vim just console
mode and no language bindings. This was already the case (the default
feature set is "huge"), but now it's explicit.

Add a pkg-descr to vim-lite that explains the above, and remove some
text in the pkg-descr that makes absolutely no sense.

There's no effective change to generated package, but the port is
getting updated tomorrow anyway.

This will facilitate the future removal at some point of the "lite"
package, so that it can be replaced by a "console" flavour.

While here, remove a variable that was last used in 2001.

Reorganize and simplify the vim Makefile

There should be no changes to the generated packages from this reorganization.
The bulk of the changes involve better leveraging OPTIONS helpers, including
making vim-lite into an OPTION (which is always SLAVEd or EXCLUDEd).

Update vim to 8.0.0019, add GTK3 support, and take maintainership.
Many, many thanks to Sunpoet for all the time he has spent working
on and improving this port!

Many smaller changes in this update as well:
- Languange support was moved into its own OPTIONS group for clarity
  (a visual change only; it does not affect the knobs themselves)
- Reorganize and format the Makefile for clarity
- Remove a few pieces of cruft
- Add many missing dependencies for most of the GUI options
- Use better (more robust) build constructs where possible
