Ruby on Rails coming to Visual Studio

Sapphire in Steel is a project to bring a commercial plugin for Visual Studio that will enable Ruby on Rails development with Microsoft Visual Studio.

The plugin will enable code syntax highlighting, wizards for setting up MySQL connections, as well as full interactive debugging support in Visual Studio.

I expect this will appeal more to existing Microsoft developers who want to experiment with the Coding by Convention approach popularized by RoR.
