Hi there,

let me first say big thanks for forking minibufexpl. Until a few minutes ago I was still using the version from 2004 - but in the process of upgrading all my plugins I realized that your version is far superior.

I found a very small 'bug' - the feature 'colorcolum' was only introduced in VIM 7.3 which won't be preinstalled everywhere for the next few years. I added simple feature detection for enabling it.

Thanks again for your great work!

Best regards,


Thanks so much for the pull request! This is something that was brought up on another pull request, and since it worked OK on my environment I went ahead and pushed it. Should have done some research, since I didn't know colorcolumn was only available for > 7.3 :(

Thanks again!
