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.

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. -- Phlip http://www.greencheese.us/ZeekLand <-- NOT a blog!!!

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. best wishes Huw Collingbourne http://www.sapphiresteel.com Ruby Programming In Visual Studio 2005
