The JRuby community is pleased to announce the release of JRuby 1.1.5!

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

JRuby 1.1.5 is the fifth point release of JRuby 1.1. The fixes in this
release are primarily obvious compatibility problems and performance
enhancements. Our goal is to put out point releases more frequently for
the next several months (about 3-4 weeks a release). We want a more
rapid release cycle to better address issues brought up by users of JRuby.

- Per-class method caching (improves __send__, respond_to?, and defined?)
- Constant cache dramatically improves constant lookup
- Reduced memory usage for compiled execution
- Several Java Integration regressions fixed
- Rubygems 1.3.1 and Rspec 1.1.11 upgrades
- Updated ffi (Foreign Function Interface) support
- More Ruby 1.9 mode support
- 113 bugs fixed since 1.1.4

FYI, the updated FFI support is feature-equivalent to the just-released
Ruby FFI. The primary difference from 1.1.4 is callback support.

As for jruby 1.1.4 i'm missing the jruby-complete.jar for 1.1.5 on your
dist site.
Me and some others had problems to build the jruby-complete.jar
for jruby 1.1.4 from source lately.
I posted to jruby user list but got no feedback that fixed the build
Finally a link for a jruby-complete.jar in a maven repository was posted.

Where do i get the jruby-complete.jar for 1.1.5 ?

Regards, Gilbert

Sorry I thought you were a maven user...

We don't currently publish jruby-complete.jar as a link from our
downloads section, but all maven users can grab it using maven.

Here is a link to the maven published jar:
