New and Noteworthy in Beta 2



  • RHTML support revamped such that most of the Ruby editing functions work properly:
  • Quick fixes
  • Bracket completion and matching
  • Improved code completion and go to declaration reliability
  • Instant Rename
  • Smart indent
  • Comment/Uncomment
  • Improved code completion
  • Active Record Completion

  • Overridden methods are shown in bold, inherited methods in plain fonts
  • Ctrl-dragging over methods and classes pops up their documentation as a tooltip (on OSX, use the Command key instead)
  • Optional plugins available
  • Dark color theme - more info
  • RSpec code templates and test execution


  • Now when the Database Explorer generates SQL for you (e.g. with the "View Data..." command and in the visual query editor), we only quote identifiers if needed. This makes the SQL text much more readable.
  • MySQL, PostgreSQL drivers are now bundled and pre registered.
