Both. I was reading quickly when I saw that functionality described at I incorrectly assumed that
it was describing customizations to vim provided by vim-ruby. I
understand now that it was describing customizations beyond what
vim-ruby provides.

I think it would be nice if each release of vim-ruby had a version
number associated with it and there was a vim command you could run to
find out what version you have ... like running "ruby -v" to find out
what version of Ruby is installed. Maybe there's already a way to do
that and I just haven't stumbled across it.

Is there a web page that provides a complete list of the features that
vim-ruby provides?
