Hi, my Vim and Python friends.
Here is another release of Allout-Vim, on the road of my learning about
how to write Python extensions for Vim. An enjoyable road so far! :-)
Since the first release, I reorganised mappings and commands a bit,
added new ones, and support for Visual mode in a few places it applies.
Known bugs have been corrected. Besides the `.tgz' distribution, there
is also a `.zip' distribution which should be easier for non-Unix users.
With this release, edition of Allout files in Vim, despite still a bit
different than with Emacs, is now of comparable comfort in my opinion.
As your comments and help could ease my learning, they are very welcome!
Allout files are a handy synoptic (or tree-like) representation of a
document. Such files were originally introduced as a GNU Emacs mode.
Vim offers tools and help for browsing or editing these Allout files.
The Allout-Vim package may be downloaded from:
while installation directives may be found at:
More documentation is also available on the Web as:
While syntax colouring of Allout files should work in almost any Vim,
Allout specific commands and mappings require a Python-enabled Vim.
