RubyMine 3.2.4 — fighting for performance

We’ve just made another RubyMine update available — RubyMine 3.2.4.

The main reason of the update is improved IDE performance. The improvements are made in Ruby specific functionality and also in the underlying IntelliJ Platform: memory footprint reduced for indexing JavaScript files.
If you are curious about other changes, check the full changelist.

Another noteworthy change is the addition of several new and update of existing editor color schemes, mostly dark ones. We’ve enhanced the popular VibrantInk and Cobalt schemes, and added some new ones such as Monokai, Blackboard, etc. Check all available schemes under IDE Settings | Editor | Colors & Fonts.

As usual, the new version is available for download on the JetBrains Web site.

Meanwhile, we’re working hard on the next major version and Early Access for RubyMine 4.0 will be announced soon. Stay tuned!

Develop with pleasure!

    Sounds great! Will the IDEA plugin be updated to 3.2.4 as well?

    А зачем тему рейлскаст меняли? Все же было красиво и гармонично. Теперь какая-то вся болотная, за счет изменения красного цвета.

    great to hear!

    i like the new color schemes very much especially blackboard but imo blue forest is one of the best color schemes for any idea based product.

  4. Better performance is always appreciated and as a fan of dark themes I welcome the improvements.

    Yes, Railscasts colors are very bad!!!


    1) In RubyMine 3.2.3 settings: select Railscasts theme and save it wth different name
    2) Export Settings in settings.jar
    3) Open RubyMine 3.2.4 and import settings
    4) Voila

    Performance seems to be a bit better, but it is still slow as molasses and unusable for me =(

    I have to say I think 3.2.3 was better.. Now I’m back to having to kill -9 rubymine several times a day like I had to pre 3.2.3.. It just hangs as it takes 100% cpu.. Think I might revert back.. this is killing my productivity..

  16. Gam says:

    Awesome. Rubymine is much more responsive and stable on my machine.

  17. ruby.freeman says:

    Is there a way to expand full node of text instead of click on each collapsed children node?

  18. Phil says:

    Is Rubymine still under active development?
