We are currently in the process of developing RubyMine 2023.2 and have just launched our fourth Early Access Program (EAP) build. In this version, we’ve implemented several improvements, and we’d like you to explore them and share your feedback. Feel free to leave your comments in the section below or submit any issues through our dedicated issue tracker.

You can download the latest build from our website or through the free Toolbox App

Syntax highlighting in inspection descriptions

We’ve improved the Settings/Preferences menu under Editor/Inspections. Now you can enjoy syntax highlighting for code samples, making it easier to understand the purpose of each inspection.

Light theme with light header in the new UI

We’ve enhanced the user experience of the Light theme. We introduced a new option called Light with Light Header which provides a consistent and cohesive visual experience. This option ensures that window headers, tooltips, and notification balloons all have matching light colors, further refining the overall aesthetic.

Single-click navigation between project directories

In the Project view, we’ve added the Open Directories with Single Click option, enhancing the speed and responsiveness of expanding and collapsing project folders. To access this option, simply click on the three dots icon and select it from the drop-down menu.

use directives formatting in RBS

As part of our ongoing efforts to enhance support for use syntax in RBS, we have now added support for use directives formatting. This improvement ensures that the formatting of use directives is consistent and follows the established standards.

Updated Code Folding settings

We’ve updated the default code folding settings in this release. Here are the options that now are folded by default:

  • Code fences
  • Front matter
  • Link destinations
  • Table of Content
  • Tables

The full list of improvements in this version is available in the release notes. To learn about the latest features as they come out, follow RubyMine on Twitter. We post product news and tips several times a week.
