We had planned on getting JRuby 1.7.1 out this week and we would have
gotten it done today, but in last minute testing we discovered a bug
with the new native rmdir on Windows. So, we will fix that bug today
and then re-release jnr-posix so on Monday we can have a nice release.
For those bugs which did not get addressed in 1.7.1 we plan on getting
1.7.2 out before Christmas so that we don’t sit on a release over the
holidays. In threads like these, it never hurts to tell us which bugs
you care about most for 1.7.2
