The IcedTea project provides a harness to build the source code from OpenJDK using Free Software build tools, along with additional features such as a PulseAudio sound driver, the ability to build against system libraries and support for alternative virtual machines and architectures beyond those supported by OpenJDK.

This release updates our OpenJDK 7 support in the 2.4.x series with the July 2014 security fixes.

Please note that this will be the *FINAL* release in the 2.4.x series. Users are encouraged to upgrade to the 2.5.x series as soon as possible. There will NOT be a 2.4.x update for the October 2014 security fixes.

If you find an issue with the release, please report it to our bug database under the appropriate component. Development discussion takes place on the distro-pkg-dev OpenJDK mailing list and patches are always welcome.

Full details of the release can be found below.

We are pleased to announce the release of IcedTea 2.5.0, “POWER to the People”!

The IcedTea project provides a harness to build the source code from OpenJDK using Free Software build tools, along with additional features such as the ability to build against system libraries and support for alternative virtual machines and architectures beyond those supported by OpenJDK.

This release updates our OpenJDK 7 support with the first release of the 2.5.x series, based on OpenJDK u60. It is the first release to include the PPC64 & AIX port work from SAP & IBM, and also the first not to include the PulseAudio provider, which will now be part of IcedTea-Sound.

If you find an issue with the release, please report it to our bug database under the appropriate component. Development discussion takes place on the distro-pkg-dev OpenJDK mailing list and patches are always welcome.

We currently have an opening on the Java team at Red Hat for someone with Windows experience; see the job posting for more details.

The IcedTea project provides a harness to build the source code from OpenJDK using Free Software build tools, along with additional features such as a PulseAudio sound driver, the ability to build against system libraries and support for alternative virtual machines and architectures beyond those supported by OpenJDK.

This release updates our OpenJDK 7 support in the 2.4.x series with the April 2014 security fixes.

If you find an issue with the release, please report it to our bug database under the appropriate component. Development discussion takes place on the distro-pkg-dev OpenJDK mailing list and patches are always welcome.
