This is yet another Solarized theme for Vim. It places itself half way between the original Solarized and the Flattened variant. It removes only some of the bullshit. The color palette is exactly the same as in Solarized, of course, although some highlight groups are defined slightly differently (for instance, I have tried to avoid red on blue). Solarized 8 also works in MacVim, gVim, etc…: no configuration is needed.
