When is JRuby 1.2/1.1.7 release?


#1

Hi everyone,

Post JRuby 1.1.6 has some important performance related fixes and it
will be
good to know when is the release of jruby 1.2 or 1.1.7 is planned.
Considering one of the goal of jruby 1.2 is jruby 1.9 support. I am
wondering if jruby 1.1.7 can be released soon and 1.2 release follows it
whenever jruby 1.9 or some other functionality is ready.

Thoughts?

As it stands right now there is no 1.1.7; 1.2 is “it”. But we should
probably try to figure out what we want to have “done” for 1.2 and what
level of “done” it should be at. 1.9 support was a big bite, but I think
we’re getting pretty close.

  • Marcin: what’s your status on the 1.9 API work you’ve been doing? How
    much longer do you think it will take? Where do you need help?
  • Tom: What remaining 1.9 parser changes do you think we need in 1.2?
    For example, do we need to get the encoding pragma stuff in before
    release?
  • Others: Are there specific bugs you’re hoping to see in 1.2? Do you
    have time to help on bugs?

For me I hope to get remaining 1.9 compiler work done. I think stabby
lambda is in pretty good shape, but I need a bit more work on
method/block arguments and multiple assignment. I also need to pull in
1.9 tests/specs so we know how close we’re getting.

According to what I’ve seen on irc, the 1.1.7 release is being renamed
to 1.2 and is targeted for the end of February. The jruby trunk has a
lot of 1.9 improvements so I would recommend checking out the latest
trunk and building a copy for your own local testing. If you notice
areas that require additional attention for full 1.9 support, add them
as issues to the jruby issue tracker.

Talked to Marcin on IRC…basically he could use help with the IO side
of things, handling encodings properly on strings going in and coming
out, and encoding-aware logic like gets.

Additional list of things for 1.2 (not just 1.9 stuff):

  • M17n is not hooked up in parser at all (not sure how much this will
    involve Marcin)
    • I am not sure if this is so important or not (Unless there is a
      strong outcry for this then this is lower priority to me than
      improving Rails perf for 1.2). Without it we will be 1.9 with the
      limitation of reading source code/strings like 1.8 does. Except for
      people with multibyte strings (literals), I am not sure anyone would
      notice. Reading 1.9 data using File/String libs will work as expected
      in 1.9 if Marcin is far enough along.
    • If people really want this then I may consider it as my JRuby
      retreat project…
  • No 1.9 standard library imported yet [JRUBY-3314]
  • Make sure we are passing a majority of rubyspec run (or at least
    know what we are not going support by running against rubyspec).
  • Windows has not been able to run Rails since 1.1.4/5. We need to
    add a windows flag or at least correct the drive-letter issue people
    are having (submitted patch is not right since it modifies
    standard-library in one place…this is more invasive) [JRUBY-1401].
  • Conclusion to leak issues we have been trying to figure out with GF.
  • Others: Are there specific bugs you’re hoping to see in 1.2? Do you have
    time to help on bugs?

For me I hope to get remaining 1.9 compiler work done. I think stabby lambda
is in pretty good shape, but I need a bit more work on method/block
arguments and multiple assignment. I also need to pull in 1.9 tests/specs so
we know how close we’re getting.
