Vim 7.4 released!

[2013-08-10] Finally, after more than a thousand patches, there is a new version of Vim. This is mostly a bug-fix release. Also, many runtime files have been improved, syntax highlighting and indenting works better. To find out the details, do ":help version7.4" after installing it. Direct link to the MS-Windows installer. For Linux you probably want to use Mercurial for convenient building. For MacVim look here. Otherwise see the download page. (Bram Moolenaar)
