Release Notes: vi no longer dies with a segmentation fault if a line does not fit on the screen after an insertion. The 'p' vi command now works correctly if the buffer contains a partial line with multibyte characters. Traditional regular expressions that sometimes failed to operate correctly have now been fixed.

When the 'ignorecase' option is toggled, saved regular expressions are now updated accordingly again.
