Vim 8.0 has been released some weeks ago and maybe you want to install it. Sometimes, binaries in packages are often not up-to-date or not configured with python. Here the command to install it from source with python et python3 options (useful if you use YouCompleteMe):
git clone https://github.com/vim/vim cd vim ./configure --enable-pythoninterp --enable-python3interp make sudo make install
You can also add other options. You can list them with:
Personally, I use the following flags
./configure --with-features=huge \ --enable-multibyte \ --enable-rubyinterp=yes \ --enable-pythoninterp=yes \ --enable-python3interp=yes \ --enable-perlinterp=yes \ --enable-luainterp=yes \ --enable-gui=gtk2 \ --enable-cscope \ --prefix=$INSTALL_COMPILED_DIRECTORY/vim
where $INSTALL_COMPILED_DIRECTORY is another directory in my home where the binaries will be installed instead of /usr. In this case, I don’t need to use sudo and it doesn’t affect the standard installation of vim.
