"The next major version of JRuby is nearing completion, offering developers a host of new improvements for running the Java implementation of the open source Ruby language.

"JRuby 1.6 is now available as a release candidate. It provides support for the latest Ruby release while enhancing Microsoft Windows compatibility. JRuby 1.6 is the first JRuby release to support the Ruby 1.9.2, the latest release of the Ruby language.

""From JRuby 1.5 to 1.6 there have been over 1,900 commits and we've made a lot of changes, primarily around adding solid Ruby 1.9.2 support," Thomas Enebo, JRuby project lead, told InternetNews.com. "With JRuby 1.6, we can now run in Ruby 1.8.7 or in 1.9.2 mode."
