Ruby In Steel 2 launches today....

The new version of Ruby In Steel Professional provides a powerful integrated Ruby and Rails development environment for Visual Studio users. It can be installed either into a commercial edition of Visual Studio 2010 or into a free ‘Shell’ edition of Visual Studio. Users who don’t own a commercial edition of Visual Studio can make use of our all-in-one installer to simplify the installation of the VS 2010 Shell, a Ruby interpreter and Ruby In Steel.
