The Rubinius 1.0 release has been a long time coming and the team is very proud to announce that it is finally ready!
This marks the end of a long and wonderful road we have all traveled over the last 3 1/2 years. There are so many people to thank for their help and support.
Fabius is the release name of version 1.0. This is a reference to the great defender of Rome. This name was given to Rubinius by Geoffrey Grosenbach, who secured naming rights to version 1.0 many years ago by being the very first person to provide some financial backing for the project. I can't thank him enough.
Tom Mornini and Engine Yard deserve the lion's share of the thanks. Back in 2007 when Tom asked me to come work on Rubinius at Engine Yard, it was a dream come true. They've tirelessly supported the project over the years, even when project momentum waned.
And lastly, thanks to everyone who has contributed to the project. Over the years, there have been over 200 contributers who've given up their free time to help make Rubinius great.
