RubyMine Kusunoki EAP: Faster Debugger
RubyMine 8 Early Access Program is moving forward with the next Kusunoki EAP build 142.5047.
We continue our series of blog posts about the major new features of the upcoming RubyMine release:
Bundler Support Improvements
React Support Improvements
New Debugging Option
New UI for Testing
Adjustments for Color Deficiency
Performance issues are always an area of focus for us. Regardless of what main features are included in a release, the IDE needs to be faster. After we implemented the new debugging option, we measured debugger execution times and realized we had to accelerate.
With this EAP build, we’re glad to announce the debugger is now much faster! For example, running all TestUnit tests in a sample project in the debug mode, with all breakpoints muted or not set at all, RubyMine gives the following results for Ruby 2.2.0 and 2.2.3 (in seconds):
For more details and numbers, please take a look at the test results page.
If you have any questions about these changes we’ve implemented or if you encounter any other performance problems, we will greatly appreciate your feedback in the comments below.
Develop with pleasure!
