EditorConfig helps developers define and share code style configuration between different IDEs and editors. RubyMine 7 brings built-in support for EditorConfig, so that now code style settings from EditorConfig files are applied automatically to your project.
Inline Variables View debugger
The Inline Variables View is a new debugging feature that integrates the Variables view right in the Editor, by showing variable values next to their usages.
Debugger Console debugger
For those who prefer the console for evaluating and executing while debugging, RubyMine now provides the ability to run the console in the context of a debugging session.
Better Code Annotations
Thanks to your feedback, RubyMine 7 provides smart autocompletion in more situations. YARD attributes and RDoc methods are now recognized by the IDE as method attributes, and are properly suggested in code completion and navigation.
RVM as a Remote SDK
Managing the development environment on virtual machines and remote hosts may take a lot of time and effort. Starting with version 5, RubyMine has allowed you to add and set up a remote SDK. Now this feature is also available for RVM-managed Ruby interpreters.
There are also improvements for vagrant- and deployment-based remote SDK.

Emmet can greatly improve your HTML & CSS workflow. To make snippets more easy to use, RubyMine now provides a preview action that can be enabled in Settings|Editor|Emmet.
