SapphireSteel Software has just released version 1.1 of Ruby In Steel
Developer - the professional Ruby and Rails IDE for Visual Studio 2005.
Version 1.1 of Ruby In Steel Developer consolidates the features of version
1.0 which was launched in January. It includes the ultra-fast 'Cylon'
debugger with step-into/over, drag-and-drop watch variables, drill-down
debugging, hovering debug tips, call stack etc.; syntax coloring and code
folding for Ruby code and RHTML templates; integrated project management in
the VS Solution Explorer; plus powerful analytical IntelliSense.
The principal differences between versions 1.0 and 1.1 are increased speed
and stability of IntelliSense, a variety of bug fixes and improvements to
the editor and debugger, better support for servers (Mongrel, LightTPD,
WEBrick), better integration with the Visual Studio Solution Explorer, new
dockable point-click-and-run Generate and Rake windows and better
documentation (100+ pages in PDF files plus the integrated help system).
