[IDE] JetBrains RubyMine


(Don Wilde) #1

For a number of years I was extremely pleased to use RubyMine as my
Ruby and Rails IDE.

However, to my dismay, I've discovered that JetBrains has disabled my
paid-for version of RubyMine because I didn't choose to upgrade at
this time!

I have never heard of this behaviour in a recent commercial software program!

Opinions, advice? I will almost certainly renew when I can, but
still... to deprive me of product I've paid for is at the very least
rude corporate behaviour!

You should have what they call a perpetual fallback license. So basically if you started your annual license a year ago you have access to the latest version of that time. If that was say version 7 and today they have version 8, you’d have a perpetual license for version 7 which doesn’t require an active subscription.

Have a look here: https://sales.jetbrains.com/hc/en-gb/articles/207240845-What-is-a-perpetual-fallback-license-

If you’re technically supposed to have a perpetual fallback license, but it still doesn’t work contact them. I’m sure they’ll fix that.

Best,

Okay, thanks, Jorge! I thought I was turning it on in order to
upgrade, not after upgrading, but I will check.
