Let Your Ruby Shine with RubyMine 6.0!

Hello everyone,

Today we can finally take a deep breath and solemnly proclaim that RubyMine 6.0 is fully baked up and waits for you to download and try it!

Let Your Ruby Shine with RubyMine 6

Key features of RubyMine 6 include:

  • Support for working with multiple projects in one IDE instance
  • Enhanced Ruby support up to version 2.1.0-preview1
  • Boosted overall IDE performance, reworked code insight for faster editing and code completion
  • Improved Extract Method refactoring now finds duplicates
  • Built-in SSH console and local terminal
  • Integration with Zeus (check this tutorial to learn more)
  • Faster Ruby visual debugger and support for debugger-gem with a multi-process debugging option
  • Adjustable auto-test delay, and more.

This release also includes many features and improvements from the IntelliJ Platform continuously developed by JetBrains, including GitHub pull requests right from the IDE, Presentation and Full Screen views for Windows, Linux and OS X, support for Subversion 1.8 and database and other improvements.

You can buy or renew your license on our site. Note that RubyMine 6.0 will be a free update for everyone who purchased RubyMine after November, 26, 2012. As always free 30-day trial is available if you need some time to decide.

We would like to thank you all for your votes, issues, feature requests and for staying with RubyMine during the EAP. We always appreciate your feedback and hope that you’ll enjoy RubyMine 6.0!

    Awesome! Any idea when these features (especially Built-in SSH console and local terminal) will be coming to IntelliJ IDEA?

    I can’t update? Checking for an update results in nothing. I got the message in the morning and clicked the read more link, but can’t get the update message back again. Downloading a new version would replace my current and I don’t want to loose all my settings.

      You won’t loose your settings in case you install a new version and won’t choose a clear install, what operating system do you use?

      • Matt says:

        I am also not getting the update inside the IDE.

    Thanks for the update!

    Having a problem here: RM used to show the current git branch by default in the status bar, which I found very useful. This is missing since after the update, how do I get it back?

    The test running isn’t working properly for me. If I run all my tests then all is well, but if a right click in a test and choose to run that test I get:

    Just updated to RM 6.02. The debugger is not usable! It takes 20 seconds to 3 minutes to step through -each- line of code. What it the world is going on?
