The JRuby community is pleased to announce the release of JRuby 1.7.7


JRuby 1.7.7 is our seventh update release since JRuby 1.7.0. The primary
goal of 1.7 point releases is to fill out any missing compatibility
with Ruby 1.9.3. The community participation lately has been great. Keep
reporting issues and sending pull requests.

This release was a quick followup release to 1.7.6. Our main priority is
working on our next major version of JRuby, but we want to maintain a
partial focus on continuing to fix bugs for JRuby 1.7.x. A faster
cycle for JRuby 1.7.x will help motivate us to keep fixing bugs on our
maintenance branch. Expect a new release about every 3 weeks

Changes of note:

- 21 issues fixed for 1.7.7
- 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
