Finally got round to upgrading Doris to version 1.1. Upgraded relevant
libraries to latest versions (see change notes below). Major addition is
Luasocket. This means that you can now create remote Doris sessions and
log onto them. For instance, you can do remote graphical debugging (i.e.
send OpenGL commands, as Lua, from an application to a listening Doris
instance on a network).

Enjoy, Nick

P.S. Any bugs etc, please report them to the SF project:

1.1 - "Remote Doris" support. Lua 5.0.2 & GLUI integration.
