has a number of different patchlevels of 7.0, with a link to "older releases"
at the bottom.
Or you can get source distributions (going back as far as 3.0) in .tar.bz2
format from http://ftp.vim.org/pub/vim/unix/ with additional (non-unix and/or
non-en-US) files going back to 5.0 (extra) and 6.0 (lang) in .tar.gz format at
http://ftp.vim.org/pub/vim/extra/ . As explained in
http://users.skynet.be/antoine.mechelynck/vim/compile.htm , I recommend
downloading the full (unix+extra+lang) sources regardless of whether or not
you're on Unix, whether or not you want English messages and menus.
Note that from time to time, bugs have been identified (and fixed) in the test
suite too, see the patch descriptions in http://ftp.vim.org/pub/vim/patches/
and its subdirectories.
