UI and UX improvements

  • In split view, double-clicking an editor tab will maximize it.
  • You have the ability to extend the search scope to external files.
  • The font weight is now adjustable.
  • RubyMine now shows tooltips one after another to prevent them from overlapping.
  • Windows users can now quickly access recent projects.

  • You can now select the terminal output using a right-click or a shortcut.

Docker support improvements


Please note that unlike previous EAP builds, the RC requires you to have a valid RubyMine license. Otherwise, it will install and run as a 30-day free trial.

You can install the RC version alongside a stable version of RubyMine.
