Bug Fixes

Previously, when using the VimExplorer file manager with the locale set to Simplified Chinese (zh_CN), the netrw.vim script inserted an unwanted "e" character in front of file names. The underlying code has been modified so that file names are now displayed correctly, without unwanted characters.
The spec file template that was used when new spec files were edited contained outdated information. With this update, the spec file template is updated to adhere to the latest spec file guidelines.
When using the file explorer in a subdirectory of the root directory, the "vim .." command displayed only part of the root directory's content. A patch has been applied to address this issue, and the "vim .." command now lists the content of the root directory properly in the described scenario.
Due to a typographic error in the filetype plug-in, the vim utility could display the httpd configuration files with incorrect syntax highlighting. This update corrects the errors in the filetype plug-in, and the httpd configuration files are now displayed with the correct syntax highlighting.
All users of vim are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
