  • A substantially re-written Ruby-Java integration layer.
  • Big improvements in performance: about 2-20x.
  • Reduction of garbage collection cycles (efficient memory usage).
  • Experimental support for Ruby 1.9 (via the --1/9 flag)
  • Started support for the win32 API
  • Ported Rubinius' FFI subsystem for integrating with C libraries
  • Addition of OSGi metadata to the jruby.jar
