The JRuby community is pleased to announce the release of JRuby 1.1.5!


JRuby 1.1.5 is the fifth point release of JRuby 1.1.  The fixes in this
release are primarily obvious compatibility problems and performance
enhancements.  Our goal is to put out point releases more frequently for
the next several months (about 3-4 weeks a release).  We want a more
rapid release cycle to better address issues brought up by users of

- Per-class method caching (improves __send__, respond_to?, and
- Constant cache dramatically improves constant lookup
- Reduced memory usage for compiled execution
- Several Java Integration regressions fixed
- Rubygems 1.3.1 and Rspec 1.1.11 upgrades
- Updated ffi (Foreign Function Interface) support
- More Ruby 1.9 mode support
- 113 bugs fixed since 1.1.4

Hmmm... downloaded twice:

After deleting 1.1.4, installing 1.1.5,  and running jruby -v, I get

[~/lib/jruby] jruby -v
jruby 1.1.4 (ruby 1.8.6 patchlevel 114) (2008-11-03 rev 7994)

Seems right since the build date is today.  Seems like ver # didn't get

D'oh. We'll fix that. It won't require any functional changes, so we'll
just respin the release.
