JetBrains Releases RubyMine 6: a Faster, More Insightful Ruby & Rails IDE
RubyMine 6 brings support for multiple projects, improved language support for Ruby 2.1 preview (and earlier versions), and works faster thanks to multiple performance optimizations.
November 26, 2013
Prague, Czech Republic, November 26, 2013 — JetBrains®, a world leader in professional software development tools, today announced the general availability of RubyMine 6, the new major release of their powerful Ruby and Rails IDE.
This new release focuses on improving Ruby language support with enhanced code insight and a faster debugger, and comes with long-awaited support for multiple projects. In addition, the IDE as a whole works faster than ever before thanks to a set of significant performance optimizations.
“In this release we strengthened Ruby support and boosted the overall IDE performance: doubled the speed of the visual debugger, reworked code insight for faster editing, and sped up code completion. It’s really flying now,” said Oleg Sukhodolsky, RubyMine lead developer. “We’ve also been listening to web developers, so now RubyMine 6 does a better job of meeting their needs by providing support for Stylus and Compass stylesheets and enhancing support for LESS, SASS and SCSS.”
Other key features in RubyMine 6 include:
- 2 new refactorings: “Extract Class” and “Find Duplicates for Extract Method”
- Built-in SSH console and local terminal
- General code insight improvements
- Integration with Zeus
- Improved Ruby visual debugger and support for gem debugger with a multi-process debugging option
- Adjustable auto-test delay, and more
This release also includes many features and improvements from the IntelliJ Platform continuously developed by JetBrains, including:
- GitHub pull requests from the IDE
- Database and SQL improvements
- Presentation and Full Screen views for Windows, Linux and OS X
- Support for Subversion 1.8
