Hello Vim users!

I have built a version of Vim 8.0 with all the latest patches. This is
mainly interesting for MS-Windows users who download the binary.

Upgrading to this version is recommended, since it fixes several
problems.

I have renamed the original Vim 8.0 files to "80-002" (it's actually Vim
8.0.002). The new files are both available as as "80" and "80-069". I
first thought that replacing the existing files would be sufficient, but
quickly found that caching causes the old one to be downloaded. I
decided to make both available, so that anyone linking to a "80" file
will get the latest version (once caching catches up).

Since patch 8.0.0029 removed support for older MS-Windows systems, only
MS-Windows XP and later are supported.

Most MS-Windows users will want to get this one:
