Confirmed. Not sure what the addon does, but do we need it still, Blender has its own Ruler now?

I agree. There is also the 'measure panel' addon that works quite well.

In any case, Ruler addon is in testing category, in other words we do not support it nor put it into release…

We should probably do some cleanup in unofficial addons some days, there are some unmaintained since ages now… :/
