CHANGES IN RUBER 0.0.8

New features:

  • Added a new plugin: Auto End, which automatically inserts end keywords
    after
    module, class, if…
  • Added a button to prevent clicking on a file in a tool widget to close
    it
    while opening the file (replaces the use of the Meta key for the same
    scope)*
    Allow to open a new editor when clicking on a file name in a tool widget
    with
    the Meta key pressed
  • Added horizontal scrollbars to the RSpec tool widget
  • Unified Replaced Switch to File and Switch to Spec menu entries in the
    Ruby/Test menu
  • Added an option to have the Switch to Spec menu entry create the
    editorin
    the current tab (by splitting the current editor), so you can have code
    and
    spec side by side (mostly useful for people with widescreens)
  • The Command plugin is now able to show output sent to standard output
    and
    standard error
  • Added menu entries (with the corresponding shortcuts) to move between
    split
    views in the current pane
  • Disabled autoscrolling in tool widgets if the scroll bar is not at the
    end

Bug fixes:

  • Fixed a crash when attempting to customize shortcuts
  • Fixed a crash with nested views

FROM THE RUBER HOME PAGE:

Ruber is a fully modular IDE for ruby written in ruby using korundum,
the KDE
ruby bindings which works on Linux (and should work on other Unix-like
systems)

Fully modular:

Except for the basic infrastructure, all of Ruber’s functionality is
provided
by plugins. This means that any user can easily augment Ruber’s features
by
writing his own plugin. He can also replace functionality provided by
the
plugins coming with Ruber in a way which integrates seamlessly with
Ruber
itself.

Written in ruby:

Ruber is written in ruby, and so, of course, are its plugins. This means
that
its users already know the language needed to extend it. A very
different
situation from, for example, Netbeans where you’d need to learn Java to
write
a plugin for programming in ruby (in other aspects, Netbeans is a good
IDE,
with very nice plugins for developing in ruby).

Using the KDE ruby bindings:

Ruber uses the wonderful KDE ruby bindings, which makes it expecially
suitable
for people using a KDE desktop (but can be enjoied also by users with a
different desktop). In particular, Ruber makes use of the excellent Kate
part
for the editor window, meaning it has the extremely well-written ruby
syntax
highlighter and most of the tools Kate itself has.

If you try it, please let me know what do you think.
