JRuby 1.7.8 is our eigth update release since JRuby 1.7.0. The primary
of 1.7 point releases is to fill out any missing compatibility issues
Ruby 1.9.3. The community participation lately has been great. Keep
reporting issues and sending pull requests.

This release was an insanely quick followup release to 1.7.7. We
realized a
few hours ago after releasing 1.7.7 that we accidentally shipped the
bin/jruby binary launcher. JRuby 1.7.8 is essentially 1.7.7 with the
correction to our bin dist file.

Changes of note:

  • 21 issues fixed
  • Fixed Windows rails new regression (bundle install exits)
  • Fixed OpenSSL gem bootstrapping problem
  • Fixed Google App Engine bootstrapping problem
  • A few missing 1.9+ Pathname features added
