Rails on IntelliJ

Hey,
Any one uses IntelliJ for Rails projects?
How do you rate it?
How do you compare it with NetBeans?
My Rails amigos are really happy with NetBeans but I'm an IntelliJ fan.
Thanks.

I'm not using IntelliJ, but I recently heard on The Java Posse that there's a new beta version out of IntelliJ (version 8). One of the new features is support for other languages than Java. See this Artima forum post for some more info.

I guess that if current versions of IntelliJ support only Java, it won't be useful for Ruby or Rails.

Actually the current version of IntelliJ supports Ruby/Rails
http://www.jetbrains.com/idea/features/ruby_rails.html
But I don't know if this support is comparable to NetBean's one.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
