Neovim is a project that seeks to aggressively refactor Vim in order to:

Simplify maintenance and encourage contributions
Split the work between multiple developers
Enable the implementation of new/modern user interfaces without any modifications to the core source
Improve extensibility with a new plugin architecture
For lots more details, see the wiki!

Confined: Config files read from ~/snap/neovim-kalikiana/common/config/nvim rather than ~/.config/nvim.

I've been using it for about a year on my work laptop. It runs well and works with all my plugins.

Distributed cross-platform IRC client
You can use this client on your Ubuntu device to connect to a Quassel core running on a server. See also http://bugs.quassel-irc.org/projects/quassel-irc/wiki

Note: Right now connecting to IRC from the client without connecting to a core is not supported.

Any Quassel fans out there? Quassel, for those who don't know, is a cross-platform IRC client using Qt, and it has a unique optional client/server feature. I just pushed an initial port to a QML/Ubuntu Touch UI.

Can I haz MainView in a Window? Apps are currently advised to use a MainView as the root item, which can have a width and a height used as the window dimensions in a windowed environment - on phones and tablets by default all apps are always full screen. As soon as users can freely resize the ...

PageHeader tutorial. The new header property. This is a tutorial on how to use the new PageHeader component. So far, we had one header per application, implemented in the MainView, and configurable for each page using the Page.head property (which is an instance of PageHeadConfiguration).

Nexus 4 - rc-proposed channel: You can use the phone screen as a touchpad. And if you click in a text field the keyboard appears on the phone screen instead of the external screen. (Sorry for the low quality)

How does it work? Is it just steering the cursor and tapping clicks? Or is it more like an advanced track pad with all kinds of multi-touch gestures?

Is there any documentation that explains the store concept of ContentHub and how to get files the app's folder? https://developer.ubuntu.com/api/apps/qml/sdk-15.04.1/Ubuntu.Content/ has barely any explanation and guessing didn't get me far. Am I mean to write C++ code to move files around? I checked Telegram and Dekko but they don't seem to do anything like that and they don't use the store in any way.

That's what I would recommend - it's certainly possible to run everything on the phone and opt out of life cycle, if you don't care to use multiple clients at once.

New PageHeader.subtitle with framework 15.04.5 in OTA-11. With OTA-11 on the horizon, rc-proposed now has a new framework. If you want to use the latest UI Toolkit API, that is part of Ubuntu.Components 1.3, you should bump your framework to 15.04.5 - in QtCreator you can find your ...

Convergence anyone?
Although as always I'm going to be very harsh:
Low resolution? Old world USB ports? Why so heavy - is the battery that powerful?
Even wanting to appreciate the difficulties of coming up with a new device as a small company, if you mention avoiding electronic waste, it shouldn't exactly be outdated at release time...
I'm going to keep my eyes peeled for spec changes, though.

This is confusingly unhelpful.

"Package status is Pending review"

"Automated review found 1 errors and 0 warnings."

Clicking does not reveal any error messages. I'm guessing it's some stupid thing like QtCreator adding magic debug powder into the .click or my having forgotten to put something in there. But it's a bit annoying that I have to guess in the first place.
