[ANN] Ruby In Steel 1.1.5 - enhanced Rails code completion/d

Ruby In Steel 1.1.5

SapphireSteel Software has today released Ruby In Steel Developer 1.1.5.
The biggest single upgrade to the software since the release of version
1.0 in January 2007, the new edition has hugely improved analytical code
completion (IntelliSense) for Rails, the ability to debug both ‘pure
Ruby’ code files and ‘embedded Ruby’ (in RHTML templates) using the
ultra-fast Cylon debugger, with full ‘drill-down’ capabilities to look
inside arrays, hashes and complex objects; plus numerous editing and
debugging enhancements throughout the system. The first public beta of
Ruby In Steel For Visual Studio 2008 has also been released.

Ruby In Steel 1.1.5 is a free upgrade to registered users. There are
also a 30-day evaluation versions of both the shipping version of the
software (for VS2005) and the beta version (for VS2008). Download from:
