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.
Release Notes: The value of st_blksize from stat(2) was still used without checking at points other than those fixed in the last release, causing a core dump when writing larger files with recent Linux kernels. The keyboard input character 255 ("y in ISO-8859-1) was misinterpreted as end-of-file in some cases.
Release Notes: This version fixes a read buffer overflow that occurred if the st_blksize field of the stat(2) structure contained large values. The regular expression code was updated. Vi now quits without giving a warning if a binary file was read but no changes were made by the user.
