I’d just like to take a moment to echo what Ola has to say about the JRuby 1.0 release. This one is definitely for all of you out there. It’s been incredibly gratifying to see the growth of the community, and the increased amount of positive feedback and success stories with JRuby, and I’m honored to have been part of the team that made 1.0 happen.
We really feel strongly that we’ve put out a quality piece of software, a tool that will make your work more enjoyable, easier, and allow you to inject some creativity and innovation back into the Java stack.
We’ve got a solid base to start from. Being able to run Rails is no small feat, to be sure, but the best is yet to come. You can expect more performance, a complete compiler, support for more applications, and tighter integration with long-standing Java technologies. In addition, we’d like to push the envelope of what both Ruby and Java are capable of, including implementing (even driving) Ruby 2.0 features, leading the way for dynamic language support in the JVM, eased as well as novel ways of doing application deployment, better debugging and tooling, and experiments with new ways of doing concurrent and parallel computing.
Do join up with us -- it’s never too late to hop in and enjoy the fun!
