Dear vimming Clojurians,

Gorilla v1.0.0 is released. It is the successor of Chimp. Contrary
to Chimp it uses a network connection for communication with Clojure.
This makes things possible like a Repl in a Vim buffer, docstrings
in a balloon popups or arglists in the command completion.

The features are on the same level as with Chimp for the moment.

Currently Gorilla is highly experimental. Expect problems! There
is a documentation file contained in the distribution. Please read
it carefully for usage information and caveats - especially with
the Vim Repl.

- As Chimp, Gorilla also needs VimClojure and enabled syntax
- The Vim must have Ruby enabled. For Windows, that probably
means that one has to install Ruby. (But compared to Cygwin
for Chimp....)

When installing in parallel to Chimp, be sure to define
no_clojure_chimp_maps in your .vimrc, since the keyboard mappings

Gorilla may be obtained from the usual place:

to Clojure
Report from the field: I got this working on Windows XP with gvim 7.2
and Ruby 1.8.6-26. No special hacking required, the default Windows
binary installs of Vim and Ruby seem to "just work" together.

I've only done trivial tests so far, but the basic Clojure integration
is working. I'm sure we'll find issues, but it's a great start.

Thanks Meikel!
