[ANN] JRuby 1.6.2 released

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Thomas E Enebo, May 24, 2011.

  1. The JRuby community is pleased to announce the release of JRuby 1.6.2.

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

    JRuby 1.6.2 is our second update to 1.6.x. The main motivation
    besides spinning incremental releases quicker was a nasty YAML bug
    which prevented a number of Rubygems from installing (see JRUBY-5581
    -- ArrayIndexOutOfBounds problem). Expect JRuby 1.6.3 in a couple of
    weeks.

    The primary goal of the 1.6.x series is to round out our 1.9 support
    by fixing any reported incompatibilities. Of course, as with any JRuby
    release, we will continue fixing any found incompatibilities and also
    improve performance. All users of 1.6.1 (and lower) are encouraged to
    upgrade to 1.6.2.

    Notable:
    - YAML problem generating an ArrayIndexOutOfBounds Exception JRUBY-5581
    - Java names of the form getX were not getting aliases of get_x, x (regress=
    ion)
    - A couple of embedding errors (JRUBY-5734, JRUBY-5635)
    - A few 1.9 issues resolved


    Issues fixed since 1.6.1:
    JRUBY-5805 Kernel.warn should use 2 writes instead of 1 puts =09
