The JRuby community is pleased to announce the release of JRuby 1.7.9


JRuby 1.7.9 is our ninth 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.

Changes of note:

 - 36 issues fixed
 - Windows File.size fixed
 - Windows now will properly display to console windows codepage
 - Fixed regression which broke Compass (or anything which depended on
 - A few more encoding issues fixed
 - Lots of Enumerable method improvements

We would like to single out Daniel Marcotte with a special shout-out
release. Daniel recently has been digging into our block dispatch code
(especially in regards to Enumerable) which is far from a trivial part
our codebase and we are loving it.
