No Respite on Making RubyMine Faster: Next EAP Is Available

Hello everyone,

We’re keeping on fighting for performance. Thank you for your feedback, it charges us with energy and helps a lot to make RubyMine better from build to build. The next faster RubyMine 4.0 EAP build is available for download.

Try it to get a first-hand impression on IDE responsiveness. And we just show you the numbers. Benchmark results for ‘Inspect Code’ run again on two example projects (Radiant and Diaspora). The results are the time, so the smaller the better:

Besides an improved performance, you will also find some other small but cozy changes:
Ruby code inspections help you improve you code, show inherited and show type hierarchy functions make code analyze and navigation more convenient.

More details and screenshots are available in the full changelog. Looking forward to your feedback!

Develop with pleasure!
JetBrains RubyMine Team

    Running the EAP now, performance difference is very noticable, especially when calling code completion. Great work!

    Will the Ruby plugin for IDEA also get this performance boost? And will it come to IDEA 10, or 11?

      Ruby plugin will also get this performance boost for IDEA 11. Part of the changes are already there in latest published version, but latest performance improvements are not there yet.

    Bug on the upgrade process… I use ubuntu, and I put rubymine in the /opt folder, and then start it as the current user. When I try to auto upgrade the error is that it doesn’t have the permissions to write in that folder, you should ask for the password (user or root) in that case… downloading the whole package right now

    Two problems:

    1. It seems to be crashing on parsing CoffeeScript files, submitted –
    2. It was hung and had to be killed, submitted thread dump.

    Performance is better though.

    Nice! I’m not jumping on the EAP this time (sorry, I need the stability right now); so I’m really looking forward to the performance improvements. RubyMine is become more and more essential at building Rails apps. I hope more Ruby coders find out this little gem.

    The subtle design changes on the mac really do it for me. Definitely a good direction. Like seeing it becoming more and more slick.
