JRuby (Ruby implemented in Java) is supposedly faster than the navtive Ruby implementation! How counter-intuitive – it’s also hope that Ruby can be sped up a lot more!
JRuby 1.1 is in beta now, it claims support for Rails 1.2.5. What about us laggards still on 1.1.6?
Also begs another question – how’s Ruby 1.9 coming along? Is it still due by Christmas?
