version 3.1 (TODO: date):
- This is the last release done by @SirVer. The new maintainer of UltiSnips
is @seletskiy. The repository remains,
so this should not affect any users. This is also the last release to be
published on Please follow the master branch on GitHub for the
latest stable version.
- New option `e`: Context aware snippets. This gives very precise and
powerful control over which snippet should be expanded depending on
surrounding code. *UltiSnips-context-snippets*
- New option `m`: Trim whitespace in all snippet lines.
- Very powerful, freely configurable pre/post-expand and post-jump actions
allow for transforming the buffer outside the snippet. *UltiSnips-snippet-actions*
- Automatic triggering of snippets without the need to press the expand
trigger. *UltiSnips-autotrigger*
- Better error reporting for snippet errors including python stacktraces
and listing of executed code.
- Undo is more granular. Each jump and expand is now a separate undo step.
- UltiSnips now emits autocommands on certain events. *UltiSnips-custom-autocommands*
- clearsnippets now clears all snippets below the current priority. This
fits better with the priority system introduced in 3.0.
- snipMate snippets support can be disabled. *UltiSnipsEnableSnipMate*
- UltiSnipsEditSplit got a new value 'context'. *UltiSnipsEditSplit*
- Improved syntax highlighting for snippets filetype.
- Mappings and autocommands are now only established when needed, i.e. when
a snippet is active. This boosts performance outside of snippets.
- New integration with Unite, TagBar, and deoplete.
- New Ctags configuration file for snippet definitions.
- Bug fixes, performance improvements, code cleanups and refactorings.
- No longer supports Vim < 7.4.
version 3.0 (02-Mar-2014):
- Organisational changes: The project is now hosted on github. Snippets are
now shipped separately - please track honza/vim-snippets.
- UltiSnips is now a drop in replacement for snipMate - it parses snipMate
snippets and expands them emulating snipMates smaller feature set.
- Filetype tab completion for UltiSnipsEdit.
- UltiSnipsEdit now only edits private snippet files. Use UltiSnipsEdit! if
you want to edit shipped files.
- New option 's' which strips trailing whitespace before jumping to next
- New option 'a' which converts non-ascii characters into ascii characters
in transformations.
- New keyword in snippet files: priority defines which snippets should
overwrite others. This deprecates the '!' option.
- Remove common whitespace of visual line selections before inserting in an
indented tabstop.
- Support for overwriting the snippet directory name on a per buffer basis
to support per project snippets. *UltiSnips-snippet-search-path*
- The keymaps for jumping in snippets are now only mapped when a snippet is
active, allowing them to be used for something else otherwise.

- Other plugins can add sources for snippets to create snippets on the fly.

- added support for listing of valid triggers. Defaults to <c-tab>.
