Why am I seeing errors in IntelliJ?
Well, considering the complexity of parsing Closure templates, and this project does not use the closure compiler to perform parsing, it is entirely likely that I missed something.
First, be sure you are running the latest version of the plugin. I deliberately prioritize fixing parser errors above all other bugs and feature improvements. My coworkers use the plugin daily and I consider myself accountable if they loose productivity on account of the plugin.
If you find that your bug is genuine, please report it at Non_Dairy issue page and I'll get to it as soon as I can.

- A sample source file if possible
I'm using IntelliJ Idea 9 or 10. Do you plan on back porting bug fixes or improvements?
In short, no. I know that there were a few minor bugs left in IDEA 9 and some nastier ones in 10, but nothing that should crash the IDE. The new work is built on top of architectural changes made for IDEA 11, and back porting recent improvements would consume a tremendous amount of time.
Can you add such-and-such feature?
There is a fairly exhaustive list of things I'd like the plugin to do at some point, but I'm one guy with a full-time job and a family. "We get there, when we get there."
The big list is on GitHub. Additional ideas are welcome. Prioritization is tracked on little yellow sticky notes and entirely subject to available time, feasibility, ROI, and public demand.
Why a Plugin for Closure Templates?
Simply put, our team started using Closure Templates in our project because they are nifty. As an avid IntelliJ IDEA user in an IntelliJ IDEA shop, I was disappointed there wasn't one already... so I built one.
