I use Vim 7.4.521 under Kubuntu 14.04.4. I downloaded and installed Nvim-R 0.9.5 (for Vim >= 7.4.1829) via
:so %. Doing the following:
$ vim somefile.R
on a file containing R code results in Vim reporting:
Nvim-R requires ... Vim >= 7.4.1829
If using Vim, it must have been compiled with both +channel and +job features.
$ vim --version | grep "channel\|job"
Do I need to download2 a newer or different version of Vim? I'd like to avoid compiling Vim from scratch ;)
1: As reported on the splash screen when starting Vim.
apt-get reports version "7.4.052".
2: vim.org is down at the moment.
