I have one comment on rc2: when I e.g. load gtk-demo sample (main.rb) from
Ruby-GTK2 bindings, and try to select some widget demo, FreeRIDE cannot
find & load scripts which are all in the same directory as main.rb. It
gives e.g.:
Cannot open: No such file or directory - "appwindow.rb"

after quiting main.rb

Is it a bug or there is a way to teach FreeRIDE to find callable scripts?

I am happy to hear that wxRuby is still a candidate. Its development is
advancing nicely.

Thinking about FreeRide one gets ecstatic - to have native IDE for Ruby
development and strong plugins support. 

All the best!
