Will jruby 1.7.0 have 1.8 support?

Or will it be all 1.9 all the time? Was unsure.

Thanks!

Yes. Pass ‘–1.8’ to it.

Ok, cool. For some reason I thought there was a plan to drop 1.8 support
at
some point, but maybe it just won’t be developed?

From what I understand, this is not a case of 1.8 getting no love and
1.9 getting all of the focus, but instead a change from what is the
default.

Since 1.9 is the decided future (and present) of Ruby, it makes sense
to have JRuby use 1.9 as its default.

I wholly support that direction, and am glad that Ruby isn’t going the
way
of python. It just helps to know where JRuby hopes to go.

Thanks!

I guess in the same vein of questioning, if I wanted to choose a version
(1.8 or 1.9) for an app that will be leveraging JRuby (as a scripting
language for users), I assume that 1.9 will get all future love from the
JRuby devs, or is that not the case?

We will continue to support 1.8 mode through JRuby 1.7 and its

1.8.7 is getting pretty old, and a followup release (JRuby 1.8 or 2.0 or
whatever) will probably be another 9-12 months after 1.7.0 lands. We
also have Ruby 2.0 to think about, and don’t want to support three
versions at once.

FYI: CRuby 1.8.7 release plan
http://www.ruby-lang.org/en/news/2011/10/06/plans-for-1-8-7/

Given the schedules, JRuby 1.7 would be the last version that supports
1.8 mode.
