Ruby Plugin 2.0 for IntelliJ IDEA 8.0 EAP is available

Hello everyone,

We're happy to announce that we've released the first EAP version of the
new Ruby plugin for IntelliJ IDEA 8.0.

This release has been in the making for a long time, because we wanted to
make the most use of the new capabilities that the plugin API of IntelliJ
IDEA 8.0 has given us. Much of the plugin code has been rewritten, and it
should work faster and be more stable than ever before.

And of course, we have many new features as well:
- Debugger (at last!)
- Graphical runner for Test::Unit and RSpec tests
- Greatly improved navigation and code completion
- Much better understanding of Rails code
- and more...

The complete release notes can be found on our Confluence site:

To get the new version of the plugin, you need to install Diana build 8823
from , and
then install the plugin from the plugin manager as usual.

We're looking forward to your feedback - and stay tuned for more announcements
in the coming weeks. :)

Is there any specific reason why the "until-build" is set? Some of us like to live on the (nightly build) edge :)

Due to IDEA 8.0 is in development plugin can be binary incompatible with latest nightly builds (e.g.: NoSuchMethod exceptions, etc).
