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.
