RubyMine 5.4 - stable enough?

Hi there,

A small team in our company will likely to be involved in Ruby related
development.

We think of using the latest version of RubyMine (5.4) and wonder if it
is stable enough or should we stick with the previous (4) version. I
mean the question really is - are we likely going to hit serious
bugs/problems that have not been yet addressed? And is the KB already
extensive enough for this version?

Also having played a bit with this IDE I noticed that it is painfully
slow – it is installed on a VM with Win7 and other IDEs (e.g. Visual
Studio 2012) fly on it.

I tweaked a few things:

  • played with /bin/rubymine.vmoptions
  • adjusted RM skin to “Alloy Glass Theme”
  • disabled several seemingly unnecessary plug-ins
    …still slow.
    Finally I’m going to add more RAM (already 3G) to my VM and additional
    CPU to see if that helps.

Please note it runs slow with just one project (basic app with just a
few controllers)… so it is not that I have some massive app I am trying
to work with.

What’s your experience with RubyMine/VM/Win environment?

Thanks in advance.

I have been using RubyMine for years (4, then 5, and now 6 EAP
(Mominji)) and am very happy with it. I did not notice any slowness,
once the initial indexing tasks are done. But I am on a Win7 computer
(DELL i5 64bits, with 4 GO), not on a VM.
