Jruby-1.1.4.jar size increased by 7MB?

I noticed that the recent release of JRuby 1.1.4 is at 12 MB, which is a
7 MB
increase from the 5 MB of 1.1.3.

What led to the rather dramatic increase of the file size?

I think the Maven build was rewired to use the normal “jar” target in
the build, which does not compress the jar. I turned off compression in
the normal “jar” target for day-to-day builds because it added several
seconds to the build, hurting any sort of iterative testing.

I think Tom made the changes…not sure if there’s a plan to re-publish
a compressed jar or not.

Thanks for the clarification, Charlie. It looks like the compressed zip
size of JRuby 1.1.4 is 5.9 MB, which is a much more reasonable increase
in size.
