JRuby 1.7.19 Released


#1

The JRuby community is pleased to announce the release of JRuby 1.7.19

JRuby 1.7.19 is our twenty-second update release since JRuby 1.7.0. The
primary goal of 1.7 point releases is to fill out any missing
compatibility
issues with Ruby 1.9.3.

This release was pushed forward quicker than planned to address issues
running Rails 4.2 (issue #2438).

Highlights:

  • 17 issues fixed for 1.7.19
  • Time.getlocal accepts fixnum as an argument (Rails 4.2 blocker)
  • A few encoding fixes
  • Socket.read(0) does not block (1.9)
