IcedTea


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 and support for alternative virtual machines.

This release is the next major release supporting OpenJDK 7. It is based on what will eventually become the upstream u40 release. As u40 is not yet final, a later release in the 2.4.x series will bring in the remaining changes from upstream. However, we are releasing 2.4.0 now as we feel that a major release is already long overdue (2.3.0 was released on the 15th of August, 2012) and the myriad of bug fixes listed below should be made more widely available.

In addition to OpenJDK, IcedTea includes the usual IcedTea patches to allow builds against system libraries and to support more esoteric architectures.

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.

It seems our latest release, 1.11.10, unwittingly depends on the latest glibc, 2.17, as this is the only one that provides the ELF definition for AArch64 in /usr/include/elf.h. This will lead to some systems failing on EM_AARCH64.

We already have a bug (PR1402) for this issue and fix. We’ll look at getting an update out for it as soon as we’ve given it a bit more testing, in case there are any further issues. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

I meant to blog about this a while back, but the recent deluge of security updates has pushed it to the sidelines. The current HEAD version of IcedTea for building OpenJDK 6 (what will eventually become 1.13) now supports building with HotSpot 23 in preference to the version in the OpenJDK 6 tarball, HotSpot 20. Indeed, this is the default, should you not be building the Zero assembler port. As users of 7 will know, Zero doesn’t work with HotSpot 22 & 23, though signs are good for HotSpot 24, which is currently being tested in the 7 updates forest.

Building OpenJDK 6 with HotSpot 23 was delightfully uneventful in the end, despite earlier warnings from Oracle that they’ve not tested anything beyond 20. We saw no problems during build and a clear run of HotSpot jtreg tests was also a good sign (bar a few JSR292 patches which we’ve since patched out). With luck, things should be good for the 1.13.0 release (which we hope will not take the year that 1.11->1.12 took) and we may even be able to get it upstream into OpenJDK 6 at some point.

Gentoo users can get their hands on this now by using the icedtea-6.9999 ebuild in java-overlay. Other users will need to check out Mercurial repository and build it themselves.
