    I’ve experienced some serious sluggish while editing code with #638. Already turned off the new feature “Autoinsert arguments and blocks on autocompletion”, yet it’s still much less responsive than the previous build.
    Backed to #558 now.

    I seem unable to close the WEBrick server from the console. It is supposed to close with ctrl-C, but nothing happens with that key combo. Is there a way of forcing it? In order to stop it, I seem to have to attempt to shut the project down. Sometimes that works, but on other occasions I have had to reboot the box.

    I am running Ubuntu 8

    Any thoughts/ideas gratefully received

    We are working hard on perfomance at the moment: see for more detail:
    You can stop process running by pressing stop button (Ctrl+F2) in console controls.

    +1 on the sluggishness. I was experiencing 3-4 second delays between keystrokes. I’ve had to revert to previous versions of the Ruby plugin and IDEA 8.1. In that version, the syntax checking and autocompletion don’t work for me, so I’m eagerly awaiting a fix.

    +1 on sluggishness. My team has moved back to 535.

    Brian, Jerom,
    Thanks for your comments. The performance problem is fixed and the new build will most likely appear on Monday, Feb 9th.

    Thanks for you patience.
