Introducing RubyMine 3.1 Early Access (build 102.217)

You did not think we’d be having a long holiday after RubyMine 3.0, did you?

If you looked at RubyMine roadmap you had probably noticed version 3.1 coming and now it has all the planed tasks marked as done. So, we guessed you’d like to try it out. Especially considering the new things coming.

  • Autopopup code completion — no need to press keyboard hotkey to invoke the code completion. It autopops up instantly as you type and works for Ruby, JavaSctipt, HTML and other files. You may want to tweak it — check IDE Settings | Editor | Code Completion section.
  • GitHub integration — you can open projects in IDE right from a remote repository, or share your project as a new GitHub repository right from the IDE. Read more in IntelliJ IDEA blog.
  • Command line application (‘mine’) — you can open files and projects in RubyMine from command line now! Just enable the script by running File | Create Command-line Launcher and you are good to command.
  • Floating editor windows — check this IntelliJ IDEA video. You can now do the same with RubyMine.
  • Introduce Parameter refactoring
  • JavaScript debugger is more Rails-aware now. You can now start JS debugger along with Rails application.
  • SQL console integration — RubyMine now knows about the database your Rails project uses and allows you to know more about it with the help of the SQL console.
  • You can now build Rails app into a .WAR file from RubyMine: just select Tools | Build .WAR FIle from the main menu.
  • Structure view now displays “test” Test::Unit closures and works for Shoudla tests.

We’ll be writing some more about these and other changes in this blog, so stay tuned.

And you are welcome to download the fresh EAP build to try it and let us know what you think of the new version.

Develop with pleasure!
