>I tried GRASS GIS versions 7.4.0 (current stable) and GRASS GIS 7.2.2 (old stable) but can't see r.vif listed under Addons in the Modules tab (see attached >screenshot). 

you have to click on the + before "Raster" to open the tree of installable raster addons.

>One thing I noticed is that when you re-install Grass and then install r.vif you get this message:

>WARNING: Extension <r.vif> already installed. Re-installing...
>Downloading precompiled GRASS Addons <r.vif>...
>Updating addons metadata file...
>Installation of <r.vif> successfully finished

yes, it's an obvious message as you install the script from the server over the local copy.
>I guess by tomorrow the new version of r.vif should be available via the server so will try again tomorrow.

the new version is already on the server and should be installable by g.extension, see

for winGRASS7.5.svn daily:

for  winGRASS7.4.0:
