The JRuby community is pleased to announce the release of JRuby 1.6.0.
JRuby 1.6.0 final is out!
JRuby 1.6.0 is the largest release of JRuby to date. This release
fixes hundreds of user issues and brings compatibility with Ruby 1.9.2
to a very high level. We have made Windows a primary supported
platform by adding it to our continuous integration environment. JRuby
1.6 will provide Windows-based Ruby users with the best experience
yet. This release integrates experimental support for C extensions
based on Ruby’s C API. And as with all major releases, we have
improved stability and performance across the board in response to
real-world user input.
Over the next month or two we plan on putting out quicker point releases
in anticipation that 1.6.0 will get a new wave of feedback. Give JRuby
1.6.0 a try and let us know how things go.
