JetBrains Releases a Major Update to its Popular Development Environment for Ruby on Rails and Plain Ruby

PRAGUE, November 17 - JetBrains(R), the creators of intelligent, productivity-enhancing tools

2.0, a powerful IDE for Ruby and Rails development.

RubyMine's second major release this year delivers many additions and
improvements and is a free upgrade for all existing users, according to the
"year of free updates" licensing policy.

A pioneer in creating refactoring tools for Java and .NET, JetBrains adds
more Ruby code refactoring capabilities to RubyMine 2.0, which now provides a
solid set of tools for global code changes in Ruby and Rails projects.

"In releasing RubyMine 2.0, we focused on bridging existing gaps in
technology integrations. In terms of supported frameworks and tools, the IDE
now does a much better job of meeting the needs of today's Ruby on Rails
projects," said Dmitry Jemerov, RubyMine lead developer. "With this hurdle
out of the way, we're now concentrated on enhancing each of the existing
features for future releases."

    The key changes in RubyMine 2.0 include:

    - Support for Ruby 1.9 and the latest Ruby on Rails framework
    - Advanced refactorings for Ruby code with support for Rails
      project specifics
    - Improved Ruby code analysis and new code duplicates detection
    - Rails internationalization (i18n) support with coding assistance
    - Specific assistance for creating and running Cucumber test
      scenarios and Shoulda tests

RubyMine 2.0 adds integration with JetBrains TeamCity, a continuous
integration and build management server with Ruby support. TeamCity can run
project tests, provide informative reports, and offers a convenient IDE
integration from its web interface.

Jemerov adds, "We're also happy to have switched to JetBrains' own new
issue tracker - YouTrack - for handling RubyMine feature requests and bug
reports, and encourage all development teams to give this tool a try." To
browse the RubyMine project in YouTrack, go to

RubyMine 2.0 is based on the recently open-sourced IntelliJ Platform.
Accordingly, the efforts of the open-source community will serve to improve
RubyMine as well.

RubyMine Commercial License for a single developer is priced at $99 (US).
The license includes free RubyMine updates for 1 year from the purchase date,
covering even major new releases.
