      Hello Vim users,

      Announcing: Vim (Vi IMproved) version 7.4b BETA

      This is the second BETA release of Vim 7.4.

      A number of problems have been fixed since 7.4a. If no big problems are
      reported then I will release 7.4 soon. Please report anything that
      isn't right. That includes a crash but also a typo in the documentation
      or a missing file.

      The biggest additions since 7.3:
      - A new, faster regular expression engine.
      - More than a thousand fixes and small improvements.

      Once you have installed Vim 7.4b BETA you can find details about the
      changes since Vim 7.3 with:
      :help version-7.4

      Where to get it

      The best way to obtain the latest Vim 7.4 is using Mercurial.
      hg clone https://vim.googlecode.com/hg/ vim
      cd vim
      hg update
      More information here: http://www.vim.org/mercurial.php
      The tag for this beta version is v7-4b-000.

      For MS-Windows most of you will want the self-installing executable:

      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

      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 <vim-dev@...>. 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 a patch
      if you can!

      Happy Vimming!
