Hi everyone,

I'm glad to announce the release of Practical Ruby 0.2.1

((http://gaiacrtn.free.fr/), an IDE for Ruby on the Windows platform. This
release of Practical Ruby brings the basic editor functionnalities. Good
enough that I have been using it for a few days.

      no opposite brace is found!

    • Bookmarks: set bookmark on lines and jump back to them

    • Use monospaced font

    • Tab and Backspace key indent/unindent

    • Smarter indent: automatically indent after class/def/for/while…, and
      unindent end/else.

    • Find: search for a given text in the source (not case sensitive)

    • Ask to save a file when closing a window if the file as been modified

    • Ask to confirm when closing application with some dirty files

    • Failures that occurs during commands are reported with a dump of the
      exception that occured (not very clear, but better than nothing)

  • New commands:

    • File/New: create a new untitled ruby editor window.

    • File/Open: open one or many text files, and create a new editor window
      for each file (Read only check box not supported at the current time).

      the file name if its a new file.

    • File/Save: ask for a file name, and save the file.

    • Bookmark/Toggle: toggle bookmark on the current line

    • Bookmark/JumpToNext: jump to the next bookmark, restarting from the
      start
      of the document if there is no next bookmark.

    • Bookmark/JumpToPrevious: jump to the previous bookmark, restarting from
      the end of the document if there is no previous bookmark.

    • Bookmark/JumpToLast: jump to the last bookmark that has been set.

    • Find/Find: ask the text to find and search for the first occurence of
      the
      given text starting from the caret position.

      after the caret position.

    • Find/Previous: search for the previous occurence of the text specified
      by Find before the caret position.

  • BugFix:

    • Returns type of function in ScintillaBridge was not commented correctly.
