JRuby 1.0

The JRuby community is pleased to announce the release of JRuby 1.0!

Homepage: http://www.jruby.org/
Download: http://dist.codehaus.org/jruby/

JRuby 1.0 is a major milestone for our project. Our main goal for 1.0 has been
Ruby compatibility. We feel this goal has been reached. When we see
companies like ThoughtWorks offering commercial support; we know this goal
has been reached. Please download JRuby and take it for a test drive. Try
running your Ruby and Ruby on Rails applications with it.

Give us feedback. Join our community. Help us continue to improve JRuby.

It is important to notice that JRuby 1.0 is not the end all of Ruby interpreters. It's not perfect. This is just the beginning. We now have a very good base to work from. This is were the real work begins. Join us. It will be a fun ride, and JRuby will just get better!

That's fantastic. In such a short time, having Ruby on the Java Platform is like a dream !!! - + Netbeans RubyPack as an IDE ;-)

congrats for your remarkable work. No I have to make sure that Nitro and/or
Og work with JRuby.

But I'll be asking on the user group why my JRoR/Hibernate app runs twice as slow as a more-functional Struts 1/Hibernate app :(

This is excellent. I have already a project that is just a few weeks away from release. JRuby has been the fast-track route to add new functionality to a legacy Java webapp. With Marcin's RubyServlet, -why's Markaby and a couple of trivial interface java classes, we were able to make a messy UI job trivial. All the hard work is much appreciated.
