RubyMine vs. IntelliJ Ruby Plugin, pricing, licensing, etc.
The initial wave of RubyMine feedback has greatly exceeded our expectations – thanks to everyone who has blogged or twittered about our new product! And we’re definitely looking forward to hearing more from you, particularly your suggestions for creating the development tool of your dream for Ruby and Rails. This is just the time to influence the development of RubyMine so do not miss the chance.
Here are some answers to most common questions we’ve heard by now:
1. IntelliJ Ruby Plugin future
We are going to continue to develop and release the Ruby plugin for IntelliJ IDEA. The feature-set of the plugin will be quite similar with that of RubyMine because they are built from the same codebase. The plugin will remain free for everyone having an IntelliJ IDEA license.
2. RubyMine pricing
We want RubyMine to be really affordable, and the planned price for version 1.0 is $99. Note that our open-source licensing program also applies to RubyMine, so if you’re participating in an open-source project (for example, have a gem or two hosted at GitHub), you can apply for a free RubyMine license.
Have other questions? Do not hesitate to ask.

RubyMine Plans to Retire Support for Rails 3 and Other Outdated Features
Dear all, As some of you already know, RubyMine 2022.1 was shipped without support for Rails 3.
