The ever popular radio voice and blogger -- Barton George had an opportunity to meet up with Charlie Nutter and Thomas Enebo at JavaOne 2008. Check out his podcast, I believe you will find it very enlightening.

Some of the topics they discussed:

  • A historical background, Ruby, then Rails, then JRuby.
  • What the guys were doing pre-Sun and how Tim Bray lured them to the fiery orb.
  • Three licenses is better than one (GPL, CPL, LGPL)
  • How JRuby is working with GlassFish and NetBeans.
  • The DaVinci machine project, jMaki and what ever happened to AJAX?
  • Might we see a JPerl?
  • Looking to get more involved with MySQL

JRuby.org updates available


The JRuby community has announced two releases, JRuby 1.1 beta 1 and JRuby 1.0.2

JRuby 1.1b1 is the first release towards the goal of JRuby 1.1.  JRuby 1.1 represents a concerted focus on speed and refinement.  Ruby code can be compiled in an Ahead Of Time (AOT) or Just In Time (JIT) mode; yielding a faster Ruby!  It uses less memory than previous releases. This is also the most compatible 1.8 release yet.

The community has asked folks to download JRuby 1.1b1 and provide feedback.  So test your applications and help make JRuby 1.1 a great release.

JRuby 1.0.2 is a minor release of the stable 1.0 branch. The fixes in this release include low risk compatibility issues. Periodic point releases are designed to support production users of JRuby 1.0.x.

The JRuby team wanted to pay special thanks and issue a big welcome aboard to the new contributors who rose to Charlie Nutter's challenge to write patches for some outstanding bugs: Riley Lynch, Mathias Biilmann, Christensen, Peter Brant, and Niels Bech.
