[Ironruby-core] Visual Ruby / Ruby in Steel — what's up?

I'm using RubyMine and it works perfectly and you can also configure it to
use the IronRuby interpreter.
I have instructions how to do that in my book and I've found out that you
can get it for free on Amazon (should I even say that? eh whatever) - go to
the book's page<http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0672330784?ie=UTF8&tag=iron0c-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=0672330784>,
click on the cover image and the "Look Inside" dialog will open. Navigate to
page 36 and you'll find the instructions there.

One thing to notice - RubyMine is not free, but I think it worth the money.
