RubyMine is 2.0 and counting

We just mined RubyMine 2.0 — go and grab it!

This is an important step as with this new version RubyMine bridges the previous gaps in terms of supported frameworks and tools. The IDE now does a great job and meets the needs of most Ruby and Rails developers.

The key changes are:

  • Support for Ruby 1.9 and the latest Ruby on Rails framework
  • Advanced refactorings for Ruby code with support for Rails project specifics
  • Improved Ruby code analysis and new code duplicates detection routine
  • Rails internationalization (i18n) support with coding assistance
  • Specific assistance for creating and running Cucumber test scenarios and Shoulda tests

Compared with the previous version, RubyMine 2.0 is based on a newer IntelliJ Platform version, which brings many general improvements to the IDE, such as: improved version control systems support, particularly, Git; integrated spell checker, and many others.

So, here is the plan for you:

  1. Read what’s new in RubyMine 2.0
  2. Download RubyMine 2.0
  3. Send us your feedback for this new version.

And for us:

  1. plan the new versions
  2. Have a party!
  3. Plan the new versions

Yours truly,
The RubyMine Team

    Awesome release, guys! It’s blazing fast on my mac!

  2. Are you planning any post-release patches or .001 builds in December/January?

  3. Rafael says:

    Thanks for the great release and your community-near development.
    This is really great.

  4. @Michael: for sure, there will be updates. But we do not have dates just yet. Are there any specific issues you’d like to see fixed?

  5. jonald says:

    ‘Scanning for gem requirements’ lockups are back :(

  6. @jonald: Could you provide more details on our forum ( Thanks!

  7. jonald says:

    Sorry, I have to drop RubyMine. It’s so slow now that it’s unusable and I can’t justify constantly having to wrestle with performance regressions every time a new version comes out. Every new version has these performance problems now.

    Version 2.0, beta 2 is still the best version you’ve released so far.

    Best of luck in the future.

    same here: running rm-96.788 and the “scanning gem requirements” locks up the ide. I’m using rvm with several different environments, maybe this makes a difference, bundler with a rails 3-project.

    Alas, this problem does not really go away after closing/reopening the ide….

  9. Oleg Shpynov says:

    Helllo Stefan,
    Could you please submit an issue at and attach threaddump as described here: next time this happens?

    I just had to drop in to agree with jonald. I think today is the day I drop RubyMine. There’s no excuse for how slow it is. “Find File” just usually takes a second, but there are way too many instances of it taking close to 5 minutes. It just gets to a point where even moving the cursor takes it over 10 seconds. This is unacceptable. I’m not running tests, the project isn’t huge, I only have 4 tabs open (with hardly any contents). This is just unacceptable. I’m supposed to be frustrated with my own bugs, not RubyMine’s.
