      Announcing: Vim (Vi IMproved) version 7.1


      This is a stable release of Vim, version 7.1. Since version 7.0 lots of
      problems were fixed and runtime files were updated. It has been one
      year and five days since 7.0!

      Most of Vim 7.1 was already available as patches for quite a while. A
      couple of test versions were made to spot problems in the distribution.
      Therefore Vim 7.1 can be considered very stable.

      If you are using an older version, it is highly recommended you install
      Vim 7.1. Several crashing bugs and a security issue were fixed.

      Once you have installed Vim 7.1 you can find details about the
      changes since Vim 7.0 with ":help version-7.1".

      I will not make an Amiga or OS/2 binary for Vim 7.1. A Mac version is
      hopefully available soon on http://macvim.org/

      only if you subscribe. See http://www.vim.org/maillist.php#vim

      If you want to help Vim development or get the latest patches, subscribe
      to the vim-dev mailing list. See http://www.vim.org/maillist.php#vim-dev

      Subject specific lists:

      Reporting bugs
      --------------

      Send them to <bugs@...>. Please describe the problem precisely.
      All the time spent on answering mail is subtracted from the time that is
      spent on improving Vim! Always give a reproducible example and try to
      find out which settings or other things influence the appearance of the
      bug. Try starting without your own vimrc file: "vim -u NONE". Try
      different machines if possible. See ":help bugs" in Vim. Send me a
      patch if you can!

      If something needs discussing with other developers, send a message to the
      vim-dev mailing list. You need to subscribe first.


      Happy Vimming!
