RubyMine 3.0 Released: An Improved Ruby and Rails 3.0 IDE
JetBrains (of IntelliJ IDEA fame) has today released RubyMine 3.0, the latest version of its cross-platform Ruby and Rails IDE. It follows on almost 18 months to the day from RubyMine 1.0. Back then we noted that the public reception of RubyMine was strong and JetBrains have only made it better since then.
If you're not already familiar with RubyMine, it's a cross-platform Ruby and Rails IDE based upon IntelliJ IDEA (to me it's always seemed faster than the Eclipse-based IDEs) that runs on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. It comes with a custom Ruby debugger, as well as version control integration (SVN, Git, Perforce and CVS) and support for several test systems out of the box (specifically RSpec, Cucumber, Shoulda, and Test::Unit).
Sounds great, right? The only downside: it's a commercial product clocking in at $69 for a personal license and $149 for a commercial license, though free licenses for "open source projects" and "trainers and educational institutions" are available.
