JRuby Released

Wednesday, November 28 2018

The JRuby community is pleased to announce the release of JRuby

JRuby 9.2.x is our new major version of JRuby. It is expected to be compatible with Ruby 2.5.x and stay in sync with C Ruby. JRuby is our first release for 2.5 support.

If you do find issues then report them on using our issue tracker at https://github.com/jruby/jruby/issues. We also encourage users to join our IRC channel (#jruby on Freenode) and mailing lists. You may also follow @jruby on Twitter for updates.

This is a security release that updates the native Windows executables shipped in the bin directory. A user reported that several virus scanners appear to flag one of these executables, jrubyw.exe, as containing a virus. We scanned the systems used for building those executables, and were unable to find any evidence of infection, but as a precaution we have rebuilt them on a known clean system for this release.
