JRuby: The Road to Ruby 2.6 and Rails 6
Over the past six months, the JRuby team has been working on filling in edges: getting refinements working well, porting C extensions, and getting well-known applications running. At the same time, we always try to push forward on performance and general compatibility. In this talk, we'll cover recent work to support Rails 6 and Ruby 2.6. We'll show off a major Rails application running on JRuby. And we'll show you how you can help us keep JRuby moving forward.
