I have uploaded another bugfix-version of vim-5.7 to sourceware

The files can be found under:


and are named 


This new version fixes the following problems:

o all softlinks in /bin and /usr/bin converted to hardlinks. This
saves space in the tar and the applications are all starteable from
outside of cygwin
o default /usr/share/vim/vimrc added that enables status-bar
syntax-highlighting & backup - files

Older fixes:

o patch file changed so that it is directly usable with the original
vim sources
o /bin/vi.exe is now identical to /usr/bin/vim.exe (both are now the
enhanced version of vim)

Corinna has thought about holding vim back until cygwin 1.1.3 is
released; this would make it easier to fix problems with cr/lf because
of the new mechanisms in 1.1.3

I am not sure what to do; what are your opinions?

Have fun,

Michael Ring
