      This is a BETA release of Vim 7.1. It consists of Vim 7.0 plus all
      patches and updated runtime files.

      people already. This BETA is mainly to check that the files has been
      setup properly. It's been almost a year since the last one!

      changes since Vim 7.0 with ":help version-7.1".

      patch if you can!
