RubyMine 2020.1 released

RubyMine 2020.1 is here! Visit the What’s New page to learn about all the details.
Here are some of the biggest highlights:

Improved navigation allows you to seamlessly jump between Rails entities and a DB schema, as well as between parent and child methods.

Navigation improvements


Test creation has become easier with the ability to create a new test for any class. RubyMine will replicate the directory structure based on the path to the test subject.

Creating tests

LightEdit mode

The new LightEdit mode comes in handy when you need to quickly edit a file. It operates a lot faster than the standard mode because it opens your files without loading a project.

LightEdit mode


You can now split terminal sessions vertically or horizontally to run them side by side. Invoke the context menu from the terminal to create, navigate, and close a split terminal session.

Split terminal sessions
