Hi all,

Thought some people may be interested in the following info / threads
I have just come across myself.  They are regarding what seemingly is
the fast upcoming support for Ruby/Rails within the NetBean's IDE.
I'm personally real interested in the auto-completion.  It should be
noted the Ruby/Rails support is still not finalised into a stable
public release, so I've downloaded the latest daily build.


Extract from last link above:
Netbeans owns its competitors in Edition and Navigation, which is
after all most of the time you'll spend in (apart of debugging). The
syntax highlighting is very effective and clear. The autocompletion is
advanced next to Idea and Eclipse at the cost of Indexing the Ruby and
Gems SDK at first run (few minutes). The filtered autocompletion is in
progress and depends on the context. Once you use autocompletion a
list with all possible functions will appear, and while you choose any
of them, you'll get the associated RDoc, saving you precious time. It
seems as if the browsing between class or through hyperlinks were
better than its competitors. A debugger should be available with
Milestone 8.

I'm sure the Sun team would appreciate any feedback on the Ruby
support features as they aim to complete it and roll it into a stable
