The JRuby community is pleased to announce the release of JRuby 1.6.5.

    Homepage: http://www.jruby.org/
    Download: http://www.jruby.org/download

The primary goal of the 1.6.x series is to round out our 1.9 support
by fixing any reported incompatibilities. Of course, as with any JRuby
release, we will continue fixing any found incompatibilities and also
improve performance. All users of 1.6.4 (and lower) are encouraged to
upgrade to 1.6.5.
Notable Changes:

    Many .9 encoding issues resolved
    .jrubyrc support for storing convenient execution options
    New cext.enabled property to turn off only C extentions but not
native support
    C extension support now uses less memory
    Updated to Rubygems 1.8.9
    -rjruby/thread_dump adds a USR2 Ruby thread dumper
    Improved peformance interacting directly with Java Maps
    Improved fiber performance and support for JVM coroutines
    Improved zlib support
    36 Issues resolved
