2006-03-27: JRuby 0.8.3 released
This is a huge release. Besides making irb (bin/jirb) work, we are almost to the point of having Ruby on Rails and RubyGems working. On top of that, java integration support is much much faster. In a simple swing demo we have reduced startup time from 2 minutes down to 5 seconds. Many fixes across the boards. The iterative evaluator has also made great progress.
