to see what was added to each of these major versions. For example, in
the version5.txt there is an entry under "NEW FEATURES" that says 'Perl
and Python Support'. You may need to do some searching through the
files as well. While it doesn't show up in at the top of the page, a
search for TCL in version5.txt shows that it was added for Vim 5.2.
Actually, having never really read them before, it looks like there is
all kinds of neat historical info in there. These should be perfect for
what you want.
