RubyMine 2016.1 Beta is Available
We’re entering the homestretch and getting ready for the next major RubyMine 2016.1 release with Beta build 145.256, which you can learn more about and download from our website.
You are probably wondering why we’re using 2016.1 version number instead of 8.5. With the recent move to the subscription model, we planned to release more often and move away from the major/minor versioning scheme, focusing on continuously delivering value independent of versioning. In addition, we want to align the versioning and releases timetables of all products that comprise JetBrains Toolbox. So these are the two reasons for the versioning change from 8.5 to 2016.1. To find out more about this, please check this post in our company blog.
At any rate, this build is focused on the bug fixes and improvements in the recently added features. The full list of issues addressed in this build is available in the release notes.
We are looking forward to getting your feedback in our issue tracker. If you have the previous EAP build (145.184) installed, you should soon get a notification in the IDE about a patch update. To get notifications of new EAP builds as they become available, subscribe to the EAP channel in Preferences | Appearance & Behavior | System Settings | Updates.
