Sun's JRuby team jumps ship to Engine Yard

"The JRuby Guys", Charles Nutter and Thomas Enebo, the main developers of the JRuby project are moving from Sun to Engine Yard. The reason seems to be the uncertainity created by the acqusition by Oracle of Sun. They said that they do not not if Oracle will support JRuby in the future, so they accepted the offer of Engine yard.

Engine yard offers Ruby on Rails hosting on a cloud computing platform. They are very popular in the Ruby world and probably JRuby will continue to be developed and sustained.
