RubyMine 2.5 EAP (build 97.39) – getting close to Beta

New RubyMine EAP update is available which is probably last before 2.5 Beta.

We’ve switched the development to a more stable platform branch, hence the 97 in the build number. Some other changes include:

Check out the release notes with full list of changes since the last update and download this build from EAP page.

We are getting really close to RubyMine 2.5 Beta, so any feedback you provide at this moment is very important.

    It’s coming along nicely, I’m using it instead of 2.0.2 as my daily driver. Only thing I’ve noticed in this release is that the debugger takes an age to start, but that just forces me to write better tests 😉

    Does that mean this release is missing some features from 98.47?

    The main missing feature is the autopopup code completion. The Ruby code completion hasn’t been tweaked for good operation with autopopup code completion anyway, and the performance impact is also noticeable.

    It looks like the new versions messed up some shortcuts. I can’t use CMD+n for “New” (classes, files, …) in the editor view.

    Using Mac 10.6.

    I assume you mean “Cntrl+N” instead “Meta(CMD)+N”. But it really doesn’t work in this build. Thanks, we’ve just fixed it.

    P.S: As a workaround – assign shortcut manually. For this:
    1. Open RM | FIle | Settings | Keymap
    2. Save as your default “Default for Mac OS X” keymap with some other name (built-in keymaps are readonly)
    3. In search field type “new” action name and assign shortcut to “Main Menu | File | New” action and probably to “Other | New” action too.

    Any plans on supporting this syntax:

    some_function(a: 1, b: 2)

    in addition to the traditional:

    blah(:a => 1, :b => 2)

    Hey! The Mac OS X installer now looks prettier! More like the good mac applications out there. Nice!

    I think, though, that in the Mac OS X installer, it’s confusing to have the Applications icon instead of the RubyMine icon as the icon of what you have to drag to the Applications folder to install.

    Thanks Pablo!
    Though I do not really understand the confusing thing you mention. I see the DMG like this: And I drag RubyMine to Applications.
    Do you see it different? Please send a screenshot if yes. Thank you!

    This syntax is already available, please ensure you’ve configured Ruby Interpreter to use 1.9 language level.

    @Oleg, so it is. Turns out that I had rvm setup wrong in RubyMine. Sorry about the noise.

    Looks like the EAP download links for the 2.5 builds are gone from the wiki… You might want to add them back in.

  13. Eugene Toporov says:

    Anton: the newer version has been released yesterday. Please update to it. Download links are available.

  14. Anton says:

    Eugene: I might be missing something, but I only see 3.0 Beta download link on – the others are all links to release notes only, I don’t see any links to 2.5EAP download. I had to dig through wiki page history going back about 5 revisions before I could see a 2.5 EAP download link, which I then had to change by hand to latest release version filename to download it.

  15. Eugene Toporov says:

    Anton: I do not really see why you need an older 2.5EAP? 3.0 Beta is a newer version. Please note that EAP builds expire after a certain period of time.

    Eugene: I thought 2.5Beta to 2.5 was more stable, and 3.0 was more experimental. Are you guys not releasing 2.5 and are going straight into 3.0?

  17. Eugene Toporov says:

    November 4, 2010

    Anton: Yes, this is correct. There will be no 2.5 release

    Eugene: ah, that makes more sense than. Thanks for all the great work!
