The JRuby community is pleased to announce the release of JRuby 1.3.0RC1


JRuby 1.3.0RC1 is a release to fix some issues which prevented JRuby
working with Google App Engine (GAE/J).  We decided to put out a shorter
release so that users interested in GAE/J could get going without
needing to
build JRuby from scratch.

****Please try your apps against 1.3.0RC1 ASAP and report problems****

- Fixes so that JRuby runs in restricted environments better like GAE/J
- Accessing primitive Java arrays are about 10x faster
- timeout.rb is now ~40% faster
- irb works in --1.9 mode now
  - Additional Miscellaneous 1.9 fixes
- rubygems 1.3.2 and rspec 1.2.6 upgrades
- 22 bugs fixed since 1.2.0
