JRuby 1.3.0RC2 is a release to fix some issues which prevented JRuby
from
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 1.3.0RC2 ASAP and report problems

Highlights:

  • 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
  • Method cache performance improvements
  • irb works in --1.9 mode now
    • Additional Miscellaneous 1.9 fixes
  • rubygems 1.3.3, rake 0.8.7, and rspec 1.2.6 upgrades
  • 58 bugs fixed since 1.2.0

Thank you for all your great work on this. I’ve finally started to
take the plunge into JRuby (including using FFI), and it has been
awesome so far. You guys have really come a long way with this!

PS: To those using Prawn, this release should fix an issue with TTF
font embedding
