We’ve discussed this a bit on IRC and in real life and it’s been
suggested by a number of committers and users, so we’re just going to do
JRuby 1.1.7 will be relabeled as JRuby 1.2, to reflect how much work has
gone into JRuby since 1.1.
From a support/versioning perspective, 1.2 is roughly equivalent to
previous 1.1.x releases. But we feel it’s time to make a larger
statement about JRuby stability, performance, and features by moving to
We also will use 1.x releases instead of 1.y.x releases for our
bi-monthly schedule, reserving 1.y.x releases for critical fixes or paid
support releases as necessary. So the next release (perhaps right before
JavaOne) would be 1.3, and so on.
Feel free to ask any questions or comment on this thread. And rest
assured, 1.2 is not a break from 1.1 compatibility…it’s largely a
marketing move to reflect that we’ve come a long way since 1.1.
