Zip download for windows (for rubymine)?

Please offer a ZIP download for windows for your RubyMine (the same way
it is available for IntelliJ).

Right now for RubyMine there's only the installer based version for
Windows :(.

Thank you,

Demetrios.

Hello Demetrios,

Why isn't the installer acceptable for you?

No :). I dislike installers :). Whenever possible for all software, I
use the zip version
(less registry crap, portable, easy to move/mirror things on other
computers, etc.).

Till yet, Jetbrains was developer friendly and always offered the zip
version too.

Since you offer the *.tar.gz version too, I think it shouldn't be that
complicated to offer a *.zip version too.

Thank you,

Demetrios.

It's not complicated, but it costs money to store an extra version of each
build on the content distribution network, and the additional download links
are extra hassle for us and the users.

Neither IDEA nor RubyMine rely on any settings stored in the registry, so
it's just as easy to move/mirror a version installed by the installer as
the version unpacked from a ZIP file.
