JRuby 9.1.x is our current major version of JRuby. It is expected to be

Major features of JRuby 9000:

  - Ruby 2.x compatibility
  - A new optimizing runtime based on a traditional compiler design
  - New POSIX-friendly IO and Process
  - Fully ported encoding/transcoding logic from MRI

If you do find issues then report them on using our issue tracker at
http://bugs.jruby.org. We also encourage users to join our IRC channel
(#jruby on Freenode) and mailing lists. You may also follow @jruby on
Twitter for updates.

Highlights:
