Some good news on Wednesday:

IcedTea is served: openjdk/control/build/linux-i586

$ java -version
java version “1.6.0″
IcedTea Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0-b08)
OpenJDK Client VM (build 1.6.0-b08, mixed mode)

IcedTea is served: openjdk/control/build/linux-ppc64

$ java -version
java version “1.6.0″
IcedTea Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0-b08)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Core VM (build 1.6.0-b08, interpreted mode)

As an addendum to my previous blog, Debian Etch needs a backported Freetype to be able to build IcedTea. I’ve finally made my x86 backport available.
