The JRuby guys have announced the 1.0 release (, , ). Just like GlassFish v1 was laser-focused on Java EE 5 compatibility, JRuby 1.0 had Ruby 1.8 compatibility as the target. Charles' blog mentions performance as the next big priority which again sounds like a familiar goal for GlassFish v2.
JRuby on GlassFish brings you simpler deployment, access to an enormous amount of Java libraries (from JDBC/JPA to JAX-WS/WSIT) and a better availability story. Check entries by Arun for both GlassFish v2 (, , ) and v3 which is working on an even simpler deployment process.
