Java News from Sunday, October 22, 2006

Charles Oliver Nutter, Thomas Enebo, and Ola Bini have released JRuby 0.9.1, a "1.8.4 compatible Ruby interpreter written in 100% pure Java." It also supports the Bean Scripting Framework. This release fixes bugs, speeds up performance, and can better handle Rails.

JRuby is distributed under three licenses CPL, GPL, LGPL. That's just way too confusing. There's zero-need to dual license under both the LGPL and GPL since the LGPL explicitly allows cod to be forked into a pure GPL product.
