[ANN] RDT 0.4.1

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Chris Williams, May 10, 2004.

  1. The Ruby Development Tools Plugin for Eclipse v0.4.1 has been released.

    Download:
    http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=50233&package_id=4
    3880&release_id=237095

    Documentation: http://213.203.244.123/rdt/doc/html/index.html

    New Since 0.4.0:
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    - Outline refresh and marker creation (via a parse) are re-generated
    after a 500 ms idle period in the Ruby Editor. This speeds the
    performance of the editor considerably (Think "Woah! That's fast" -
    Sorry for our earlier hack of reparsing on each refresh!)
    - Option to use spaces instead of tabs ("inline", not just after
    formatting)
    - Configurable indent level for formatting action
    - Configurable filtering in the Ruby Resources View (only Ruby files, or
    all files)
    - Link to Editor option in the Ruby Resources View
    - .gem, .gemspec, .cgi, .rhtml, rakefile and .rbw files are all now
    recognized as "Ruby" files (shown in the Ruby Resources View and
    editable)
    - Larger set of syntax warnings and ability to toggle their creation
    (since it is still currently experimental and creates some "false
    positive" warnings)
    - Syntax Highlighting color defaults now match the Java editor (no more
    pink comments!)
    - A number of bugfixes


    Major Features:
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    - Works with Eclipse 3.0
    - Ruby Debugger (currently works with Ruby 1.6.8 - see the documentation
    or wiki for more information on different versions)
    - Ruby Resources View
    - Link to editor
    - Ability to toggle filtering to only "ruby" files
    - Ruby Editor with:
    - Ruby Outline View
    - Code Completion (current script's elements and keywords)
    - Syntax Highlighting (with configurable colors)
    - Syntax Validation (Warnings and errors) toggle
    - Visual diff of current file with latest revision on disk or in CVS
    - Ruby Project Wizard

    For a more full description of what's new in this version please refer
    to: http://213.203.244.123/wiki/wiki.phtml?title=Release_Plan

    The Project Wiki is up at:
    http://213.203.244.123/wiki/wiki.phtml?title=Main_Page

    Please if you use Eclipse, take a look at this project - we're working
    towards bringing the power of the JDT to Ruby. Dynamic languages like
    Ruby and Python need more dynamic tools for support and to help spread
    word!

    Markus has done a tremendous job with this release - you have him alone
    to thank for the large majority of the new content in it. As always we
    encourage bug reports and feature requests so we can get a handle on
    what everyone needs and wants in their ruby editor!

    I've been using 3.0 M7 and 3.0 M8 for some time now, and haven't had any
    problems. Occasionally, it seems the first time I do a search on some
    Java member, it comes up with nothing, then if I immediately retry it,
    it finds the hits I was expecting. I haven't played around with it to
    see anything more specific. But the calling/called methods hierarchy
    stuffs are awesome, worth the trip to 3.0, IMO.

    I was not a 2.1 user for very long, so I don't know if there was
    anything in 2.1 that substantially changed.
