Ruby In Steel 1.5 Released
SapphireSteel Software today released the latest version of the Ruby In Steel IDE for developing Ruby and Rails applications with Visual Studio.
Ruby In Steel ‘Developer Edition’ 1.5 provides integrated edit-and-run capabilities for Ruby 1.8.x, Ruby 1.9.x and JRuby 1.4 including IntelliSense and two integrated debuggers - Cylon for Ruby 1.8.x and the updated JCylon debugger for JRuby 1.4.
Ruby In Steel 1.5 supports named ‘Build Configurations’ to allow developers to test their applications against alternative Ruby interpreters simply by picking a configuration name from a drop-down list. This makes it easy to test an application against (for example) Ruby 1.8.6, Ruby 1.8.7, Ruby 1.9.1 and JRuby 1.4. The two integrated debuggers , Cylon and JCylon, support breakpoints, step-into/out/over and drill-down debugging (to expand complex variables) in multiple windows or in hovering ’debug tips’ in the code editor itself.
A free 60-day evaluation version of Ruby In Steel 1.5 is available for immediate download. Ruby In Steel 1.5 is a free update to existing registered users of any previous version of Ruby In Steel Developer.
