I just noticed this project and since we like discussing language-in-a-language projects, I thought I'd mention it.

It seems that they are almost ready to run Rails. Now that's going to be cool!

JRuby is for real

I'm one of the two core developers on the project, and I'd like everyone to know JRuby is really moving along lately. Just a couple hours ago, I managed to get a Rails request to process, and we've been enhancing and fixing the core interpreter left and right. We're also planning a number of advanced VM features like m:n threading, mixed-mode JIT compilation, and tail-call optimization (all on the JVM, no less!). We'd love for those of you interested to stop by and have a chat with us. We'll be presenting at JavaOne this year, so we'll be in SF from May 16-19. The core team is located in Minneapolis, so if you're in the area, drop us a line! I've been trying to update my blog frequently with major updates, so check headius.blogspot.com if you're interested. Thank you!
