We just released a new version of our toolbelt. We listened to your feedback and worked on a completely brand-new toolbelt.
- It's much faster to load (we rewrote the whole thing in Go).
- It's not a gem anymore so it won't get into conflict with your gemsets and doesn't get lost every time you create a new gemset.
- It has automatic updates in the background. No more gem updates and dealing with potential conflicts.
- It uses the remote Git repository to figure out the stack you are working on automatically. No more long and ugly UIDs, no more stack aliases.
- You can refer to stacks and servers by name or part of the name or their role (like web or mysql) to connect to them. Combined with auto complete, that's a joy to use!
Get it now!
The new toolbelt is available to all of our customers from today and you can download it by clicking on the Toolbelt tab on the right hand side of your screen.
This release is available on Linux, OS X and Windows on both 32 and 64 bit architectures. It is also open source, just like the old toolbelt. So if you want to chip in with a pull request or test your Go chops, let's get hacking!
Here is how to get started. As always, we really appreciate your feedback and would love to know what you think about the new toolbelt and anything else we do in general.
