RubyConf 2007: JRuby: Ruby for the JVM
Everyone in the audience knows already what JRuby is, so they won’t cover that. It’s a Java implementation of the Ruby 1.8 language. It’s available under a few opensource licenses, blah blah blah. They released 1.0.2 a couple of days ago (and 1.1b1 last night during Matz’ questions).
[Tim Bray fairly incomprehensively announces that Sun has done a deal with University of Tokyo to work with ? on ? and give them "a bunch of money". Another implementation?]
