Ruby In Steel - New Free Edition includes free copy of Visual Studio

SapphireSteel Software today released a free edition of Ruby In Steel, the Ruby and Rails IDE for Microsoft Visual Studio 2008.

Ruby In Steel Personal Edition (PE) 2008 provides all the tools needed to develop and maintain Ruby or Ruby On Rails projects including syntax sensitive customizable code coloring and code folding, coding tools such as auto-indenting, code reformatting, bracket and keyword matching and integrated consoles to allow users to interact with the Ruby interpreter in docked or floating windows. Ruby In Steel PE 2008 even includes a free copy of Visual Studio 2008!

Ruby In Steel PE 2008 is available for personal or commercial development. It does not require registration and it does not time out. It comes with an ‘All-in-One’ installer to allow users to install all the software required including: Visual Studio 2008 (‘Shell edition’), Ruby, Rails, MySQL and Ruby In Steel. Alternatively, users who already own a commercial edition of Visual Studio 2008 may install Ruby In Steel into that.
