JRuby 0.9.0 Released

http://www.jruby.org/

We are pleased to announce JRuby 0.9.0. This release has had so much
activity and progress that we decided to bump things up to a 0.9.0
release.
Many many bugs have been fixed to the point that:

  • RubyGems 0.9.0 installed and working*

  • WEBrick runs

  • Ruby on Rails runs on top of WEBrick (and generation scripts work)**

  • much improved YAML parser thanks to JvYAML and RbYAML projects

  • we bundle all non-native standard libraries in our distribution

    We are getting to a correctness level where the more complicated Ruby
    libraries and applications are running properly. From this point on we
    are
    going to improve on correctness and start to focus more on performance.

    For 0.9.1 we plan on getting Rails to run in a JEE servlet container
    out
    of the box. We also plan on improving Rake support. More correctness
    fixes will be applied as discovered.

    As always we thank and encourage all who contribute to our project and
    community. We would like to give some special thanks to:

  • Ola B. for his rubygems and YAML work. He has spent a lot of sweat
    and
    tears to get rubygems functioning. His YAML work is a very exciting.
    Development of JvYAML extends beyond JRuby in scope into the Java world
    at large. He also spent a lot of time looking at bottlenecks and
    addressing
    performance of Rubygems once it was working.

  • Evan Buswell for his server socket work. He improved on David
    Corbin’s
    original socket work and got the socket code working well enough to
    WEBrick
    to start.

footnotes:

  • Though the YAML and download of the remote gem is somewhat comparable
    to
    Ruby performance we have a severe performance problem when generating
    rdocs
    for the new gem. We plan on looking at this at the beginning of the
    next
    development cycle. Consider using options: --no-rdoc and --no-ri
    ** We are able to generate and run the cookbook demo from rolling with
    rails tutorial
    (http://www.onlamp.com/pub/a/onlamp/2005/01/20/rails.html)
    with what we have and all appears to work. With this said, it is likely
    that there are several aspects of rails that are not working correctly.
    See docs/README.rails for known issues/instructions in release.

Congratulations! Are there any differences between the RC1 and this
one (i.e. do I need to re-download the final 0.9.0)?

Nope it did not change.
