VIrus (VI resembling utility skeleton) was originally taken from busybox and stripped of most unrelated stuff. The intention is to provide a pure, minimalist VI implementation that allows you to switch off shell-escaping and other security risks by default, and allow the admin to offer an interim user to just have a vi as login-shell on a certain host, while allowing others to work with a resource-sensitive and small vi implementation for your OS bootdisks.

VIrus, GN and Chimera Browser will soon move to a server home, so for any build scripts use it, please check your URLs if anything fails.
Release Notes: Type difference compiler warnings were eliminated. Two strlcpy calls were improved to check for overflow and use sizeof() to determine buffersize.
Release Notes: Various strcat and strcpy calls were changed to the strl* equivalents. All defined switches were added to the makefile and the makefile was cleaned up. A possible problem with editing multiple files with the CRASHME binary was found, and compilation was tested on various systems. Precompiled binaries are now available for ROCK Linux ia32 and Mac OS X 10.2.6.
Release Notes: A buffer overflow patch was integrated from busybox 0.60.5. Compilation was tested on ROCK Linux 1.5.13 and 1.6.0 on ia32 and sparc64 and Solaris 2.6, 7.0, 8.0, and 9.0 on sparc32 and sparc64. It was also found to compile on Mac OS X 10.1.5 and 10.2.
Release Notes: Updates to include changes from busybox 0.60.3 (bypassing some checks for cursor keys), and new binaries for rocklinux (SPARC, IA32) and Mac OS X 10.1.5.
Release Notes: Makefile support was added as a preparation for the upcoming upgrade. It has been tested on Solaris 2.6/SPARC, Mac OS 10.1.5, and rocklinux 1.5.10, 1.5.12, and 1.5.17 for Intel and SPARC.
