We hope you had great holidays, got inspired and are now ready for the new year’s challenges, adventures, and more ideas and magic.
We on the RubyMine team are happy to start this year by opening the Early Access Program for the next RubyMine 8.5. You’re welcome to download RubyMine 8.5 EAP (build 144.2925) and try it. You can install it side by side with RubyMine 8; no active subscription is required.
A lot of your feedback on RubyMine 8 was about focusing even more on Ruby and Rails and polishing the key IDE features. So for the next release we’re working on even better code insight, new refactorings, and more for Rails and Ruby. As we want to make our development process more transparent and share with you our progress on the new IDE features, with this program we are going to publish new builds weekly.
As you probably know Ruby 2.3 was recently released so it was only natural to include Ruby 2.3 support as the first RubyMine 8.5 feature. Here are some more details on that.

As hard to believe as it is, 20 years ago the first public version of Ruby saw the light of day. Ruby 0.95 was announced by Yukihiro Matsumoto, now widely known as Matz. Over these 20 years a lot of developers have discovered Ruby and fell in love with it, including us at JetBrains. Hopefully there are many more younger people who will do the same one day. Hurray to the whole Ruby community who has helped make this history happen!
To look back on the interesting and eventful journey of Ruby today, we’ve come up with a series of humorous cartoons illustrating the Ruby timeline. We invite you to celebrate the anniversary with us.
