RubyMine 2016.2: Enhanced Support for Ruby, YAML, RSpec, and More

Hello everyone,

My calendar says we have a release today. And here it is! RubyMine 2016.2, the second update in the 2016 series of releases, is now ready to use. Read more and download RubyMine 2016.2 on the What’s New page on our website.


We didn’t even have a special roadmap for this version, as we decided to polish all the existing features and focus on your feedback on 2016.1, rather than adding something extremely new. So for the last few months RubyMine team has focused on better code intelligence for Ruby, YAML, and RSpec. The 2016.2 also inherited all the new features and improvements from IntelliJ Platform, bringing better support for JavaScript and TypeScript, an enhanced UI, and improved VCS and database tools.

RubyMine 2016.2 Early Access Program is Open

Hello everyone,

Last year’s move to the subscription model was motivated by our desire to release more often, focusing on continuous delivery of value independent of versioning. With that goal in mind, we started this year with RubyMine 2016.1, the first release in the series of releases planned for 2016. Now we’re glad to announce RubyMine 2016.2 EAP, a preview of the next IDE update planned for this summer!

Staying focused on polishing the key IDE features, in this release we continue to work on better code insight, new refactorings, smoother gem management experience, and other features you use every day. We also have a lot of new features coming from IntelliJ Platform and hope you will like them as well.

Please stay tuned as we’re going to publish posts about all the most interesting 2016.2 new features during the summer. As of today, let me share a couple of neat new features that help make RubyMine easier on your eyes.

RailsConf 2016: Are Ruby and Rails Still Trendy?

Hello everyone,

Looking back at the history of Ruby and Rails, we can’t help but highlight 2006 – the year IntelliJ IDEA Ruby Plugin was released and the first RailsConf took place in Chicago. Now, ten years later, we’re excited that the RailsConf 2016 is about to begin.

The RubyMine team has visited RailsConf each and every year since 2010, and always got back from it inspired and full of new ideas for RubyMine, all thanks to the incredible Ruby community!

Nowadays, some say that Ruby and Rails are on the decline and the community is not as active as it used to be. Is this really true? Let’s find the answer together!

Take Part in a Ruby Community Survey

We want to ask you, Ruby developers all over the world: Do you agree that Ruby and Rails are not trendy any more? Please follow this page with three simple questions to help us find the answer. By answering, you also get a chance to win one of the Amazon certificates worth 75$ as we’re going to compliment the most interesting answers.

Meet Us at RailsConf 2016

You’re most welcome to join us at the JetBrains booth to discuss the topic, ask any questions on RubyMine, have a demo, or have a chat over a cup of coffee during the break! We will also be wearing our JetBrains Team T-shirts so you can easily find us around the show.

We also invite you to see our own Tatiana Vasilyeva talk about RubyMine tips&tricks on Thursday, 10:50 – 11:30 AM, at 3501 G.

Sincerely yours,
The RubyMine Team
