MruMenu.vim 6.0.4 2003-05-23 6.0 Rajesh Kallingal MRU was not working while writing a new file. Added back the autocmd for BufWritePost and FileWritePost (Thanks to Edward J. Krall for reporting)
MruMenu.vim 6.0.3 2003-05-15 6.0 Rajesh Kallingal Speeded up the menu creation by moving the check for loaded buffers to run time rather than menu build time.

Handles help files correctly, thanks to Steve Hall.
