Hello NetCAT team,

I am forwarding our message about discontinued Ruby support in the IDE.

Thanks for your understanding,

Dear NetBeans Community:

After thorough consideration, we have taken the difficult step to discontinue 
support for Ruby on Rails in the NetBeans IDE. Two main issues underpin this 

Java SE 7 and Java Development Kit 7 (JDK 7) are the next major releases of 
the Java SE platform, which Oracle is committed to deliver in 2011. A key 
objective of the NetBeans IDE has always been to offer superior support for 
the Java platform. To maintain that objective and capitalize on the JDK 7 
release themes--multi-language support, developer productivity and 
performance--it is necessary that our engineering resources are committed to 
a timely and quality release of NetBeans IDE 7.0.

Second: Although our Ruby support has historically been well received, based 
on existing low usage trends we are unable to justify the continued 
allocation of resources to support the feature.

As of January 27, the Ruby on Rails module will be gone from development 
builds of NetBeans IDE 7.0. Developers who want to continue to use Ruby on 
Rails functionality in the NetBeans IDE should please visit the NetBeans Ruby 
Support page for details on how to do so going forward.

We remain committed to delivering a first-class product to our community of 
developers and users, and we encourage your feedback on our mailing lists and 
forums, on Twitter, or by writing to us.

Thank you for your continued support of NetBeans.
The NetBeans Team
