      Hello Vim users,


      Announcing: Vim (Vi IMproved) version 7.2b BETA


      This is a BETA release of Vim 7.2. It consists of Vim 7.1 plus all
      patches, updated runtime files and some more.

      I expect this to be stable, since most of the patches have been used by
      many people already. However, I did include several patches the last
      few days, this might break something.

      Please report every problem you find! The time until a 7.2 release
      depends on how many problems are reported.

      The biggest addition since 7.1 is floating point support.

      Since version 7.2a several reported problems were fixed. The MS-Windows
      binary is now built with VC 2003, so that it also works on MS-Windows 98
      and ME. Should also work on Vista.

      Once you have installed Vim 7.2b BETA you can find details about the
      changes since Vim 7.1 with ":help version-7.2".


      Testing
      -------

      This is a BETA test version. Please give it a good test and report
      anything that isn't right. That includes a crash but also a typo in the
      documentation.

      I will not make an Amiga or OS/2 binary for Vim 7.2b. A Mac version is
      hopefully available soon on http://macvim.org/ and/or from the MacVim
      project at http://code.google.com/p/macvim/


      Gratitude
      ---------

      If you like Vim, this is the way to say thanks:

      Where to get it
      ---------------

      All files can be found below this directory:
      ftp://ftp.vim.org/pub/vim/unstable/

      Information about which files to download for what system (don't use the
      links, they are still for Vim 7.1):
      http://www.vim.org/download.php

      A list of mirror sites can be found here:
      http://www.vim.org/mirrors.php

      Vim 7.2b is also available from CVS. Subversion will follow later.
      http://www.vim.org/cvs.php
      http://www.vim.org/subversion.php

      The Aap files have also been updated.


      An overview of the files below "unstable":

      UNIX:
      unix/vim-7.2b.tar.bz2 sources + runtime files, bzip2 compressed

      MS-WINDOWS one-size-fits-all:
      pc/gvim72b.exe self-installing, includes all runtime files

      VARIOUS:
      extra/vim-7.2b-extra.tar.gz source files for non-Unix platforms
      extra/vim-7.2b-lang.tar.gz multi-language files
      doc/vim72bhtml.zip help files converted to HTML

      MS-WINDOWS separate files:
      pc/vim72brt.zip runtime files
      pc/vim72blang.zip files for translated messages and menus
      pc/gvim72b.zip GUI binary for Windows 95/98/NT/2000/XP
      pc/gvim72bole.zip GUI binary with OLE support
      pc/gvim72b_s.zip GUI binary for Windows 3.1 (untested)
      pc/vim72bd32.zip console version for MS-DOS/Windows 95/98
      pc/vim72bw32.zip console version for Windows NT/2000/XP
      pc/vim72bsrc.zip sources for PC (with CR-LF)

      DIFFS TO PREVIOUS RELEASE:
      unix/vim-7.2a-7.2b.diff.gz sources + runtime files
      extra/vim-7.2a-7.2b-extra.diff.gz extra files
      extra/vim-7.2a-7.2b-lang.diff.gz multi-language files

      There is no 16-bit DOS version, I could not build it.


      Mailing lists
      -------------

      For user questions you can turn to the Vim mailing list. There are a
      lot of tips, scripts and solutions. You can ask your Vim questions, but
      only if you subscribe. See http://www.vim.org/maillist.php#vim

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

      Subject specific lists:
      Multi-byte issues: http://www.vim.org/maillist.php#vim-multibyte
      Macintosh issues: http://www.vim.org/maillist.php#vim-mac

      Before you ask a question you should search the archives, someone may
      already have given the answer.


      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!
