    Is there an ETA for when the final product will be released. I’m currently testing this against Ruby Mine. I’ve got to choose soon, and knowing when this is coming out will help me to decide.

    This is great news. I just got an upgrade of the Pickaxe to Ruby 1.9.2 and wondered when Ruby in Steel would support it, and here’s the answer. Congratulations. I have nothing but praise for the product, which has just allowed me to complete a 3 month project on a large website written in Rails 1.1.2 and Ruby 1.8.6.
