[ANN] JRuby 1.4.0RC3 Released

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Thomas E Enebo, Oct 28, 2009.

  1. The JRuby community is pleased to announce the release of JRuby 1.4.0RC3

    Homepage: http://www.jruby.org/
    Download: http://www.jruby.org/download

    Third time is a charm! Actually, this third release candidate is largely
    for the benefit of our Windows users. We have gotten reports of issues with
    our new installer and our new native launcher and we have been trying to make
    sure JRuby on Windows is a pleasant experience. We also fixed a Socket
    regression which had caused celerity to break.

    The JRuby 1.4.0 release 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.

    ****Please try your apps against 1.4.0RC3 ASAP and report problems****

    1.4.0RC1-RC3 Highlights:
    - JRuby is now compatible with 1.8.7 patchlevel 174
    - Windows Native Launcher
    - Solves many reported bugs with our old .bat scripts
    - New YAML parser Yecht (bug-for-bug compatible with Syck!)
    - Improved Java Integration Support
    - faster
    - new java_method, java_send, and java_alias 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
    - 241 bugs fixed since 1.3.1
