We are pleased to announce a new major release of IcedTea6, 1.9!

The IcedTea project provides a harness to build the source code from OpenJDK6 using Free Software build tools. It also includes the only Free Java plugin and Web Start implementation, and support for additional architectures over and above x86, x86_64 and SPARC via the Zero assembler port.


Please note that VisualVM support is no longer included as part of IcedTea6 from this release onwards. Instead, VisualVM Harness 1.0 should be used.

What’s New?

  • VisualVM support removed; now available in its own package at http://icedtea.classpath.org/hg/visualvm
  • A separate build directory is now used for the OpenJDK build: openjdk.build-ecj (stage 1) and openjdk.build (stage 2)
