    JRuby 1.4.0 Release Candidate 1 ends a long release cycle in which we
    resolved a huge number of issues. The headline feature is a move to
    Ruby 1.8.7 support, in line with Rails' own plans to make 1.8.7 the required
    minimum version of Ruby.

    We have also gotten more serious about out 1.9 support (--1.9). The
    bigger applications mostly just work at this point, but we still have a
    ways to go on 1.9 support. Please try your 1.9 code in JRuby and help us
    firm things up.

    Bug reports welcome and requested!

    ****Please try your apps against 1.4.0RC1 ASAP and report problems****

    Highlights:
    - JRuby is now compatible with 1.8.7 patchlevel 174
    - New YAML parser Yecht (bug-for-bug compatible with Syck!)
    - Improved Java Integration Support
    - faster
    - new java_method and java_send methods
    - Windows installer
    - New embedding framework
    - Java 6 scripting out of the box
    - New org.jruby.embed package to replace JavaEmbedUtils
    - Many 1.9 mode (--1.9) fixes
    - updated stdlib to 1.9.2preview2
    - Rubygems now working
    - Rails 2.3.3 simple apps working (2.3.4 has 1.9 bug)
    - rubygems 1.3.5
    - Much better error reporting
    - shorter backtraces with less Java
    - Ruby-compatiable syntax error reporting
    - 205 bugs fixed since 1.3.1

    We want to give a couple of special acknowledgements for some contributors
    who went the extra mile this release cycle.

    David Calavera has done a great job wrestling with Rubyspec failures and
    coming up with patches.

    Yoko Harada has totally revamped our embedding APIs and created a new API
    called Red Bridge. This should address all of the reported embedding issues.
