Bideford, Devon, United Kingdom, 2007/01/29 - Ruby In Steel Developer, launched today, is the only Ruby programming environment for Microsoft's Visual Studio 2005. It features an ultra-fast Ruby debugger and unparalleled IntelliSense.
SapphireSteel Software today announced the immediate availability of Ruby In Steel Developer - the only professional Ruby programming environment for Microsoft's Visual Studio 2005.
Ruby In Steel Developer includes the ultra-fast 'Cylon' debugger. In benchmark tests, Cylon has recorded speeds over 100 (one hundred) times faster than the standard Ruby debugger. Ruby In Steel Developer also has full analytical IntelliSense (not just 'code completion') for Ruby and Rails. It is the only professional Ruby development suite for Microsoft's Visual Studio 2005.
Today SapphireSteel Software also announced a free 30-day Trial version of Ruby In Steel Developer with immediate availability. The Trial Edition has all the major features of the commercial edition including the fast Cylon debugger, IntelliSense, editing and project management. In addition, there is a completely free version of the software - Ruby In Steel Personal Edition (PE) - which has a slower debugger and lacks IntelliSense. The Personal Edition is available for unrestricted use and is not time-limited.
A complete feature list of both the Developer and Personal Editions can be found on the SapphireSteel Software website.
Ruby In Steel Developer is priced at $249. For a limited period, early adopters will be able to buy at the launch price of $199. Ruby In Steel PE ('Personal Edition') is free.
SapphireSteel Software has published a Road Map outlining features of the forthcoming releases of Ruby In Steel throughout 2007. The first major update will be version 1.2 (the 'Visual Rails' edition) and will culminate with version 1.5, due for release in the third quarter of 2007. Registered users of Ruby In Steel Developer 1.x will be offered free updates to all versions of the software up to and including version 1.5.
