We have just placed RC1 of the free Personal Edition of Ruby In Steel on
our site. Users of beta versions will need to install this as the betas
will now have expired. RC1 has no expiry date so will continue to
function indefinitely. There will be a final release before the end of
January. This is unlikely to be significantly different from RC1.

You will need Visual Studio 2005 - standard edition or better (not
Express) to install Ruby In Steel.

Download the software from:

This will be a major boost for those of us who like MS's editor
features.
For example, the Find window has a Find in Open Documents feature. _Not_
a
feature that drives Grep for you (like I don't know how to myself), and
then
hits all the extra files you don't care about. The slowest aspect of
editing, for me, has always been navigating between change locations. In
a
well-factored application, one bounces all over the place just to get
anything done. So long as the Bookmark system will inexplicably not
travel
between files, my best bet for navigation is to leave markers at various
sites, then use F3 to rapidly flip thru them. I still don't know why
other
editors don't have this simple feature...

Now, could you make the syntax highlighting less hysterical? I'm mildly
visually impaired (which explains my comics!), so the black-on-blue for
:symbols is a non-starter for me.

Actually the syntax highlighting I was squeaking about happens in RHTML
files...

You may be surprised to know that one of the most requested features is
*more* syntax highlighting options! The colours are, however, all
entirely optional and user configurable so you can set everything to
black on white or green on black if you want ;-)

We use standard Visual Studio colour options when available (e.g.
comments, strings etc.) and provide a set of additional Ruby and RHTML
options (local vars, instance vars, class vars and so on). All our Ruby
and Rails options are grouped together alphabeticaly (prefaced by 'Ruby'
or 'Rails') in the Tools/Options/Fonts dialog so you can easily change
them to taste in one fell swoop.
