Release


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 updates our OpenJDK 7 support to include support for the ARM32 JIT port running on HotSpot 23, meaning ARM users can move to the 2.3.x series. A number of build issues were discovered with the ARM port in the previous 2.3.11 release and this release provides fixes for these.

In addition, IcedTea includes the usual IcedTea patches to allow builds against system libraries and to support more esoteric architectures. In this release, use of the system version of LCMS is again enabled by default, but requires version 2.5 or above.

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.

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.

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 pair of releases for IcedTea6 is provided to fix a number of regressions introduced by the recent security releases (1.11.6 & 1.12.1). These patches were not included in the initial set of security patches from Oracle, but only became available when they pushed the changes to the OpenJDK Mercurial repositories.

The fixes are as follows:

  • S8004341: Two JCK tests fails with 7u11 b06
  • S8005615: Java Logger fails to load tomcat logger implementation (JULI)

We’ve also taken this opportunity to provide bug fixes for a couple of build issues which have been reported in the interim between this release and the last.

Full details of each release can be found below.

Happy hacking!

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.

The IcedTea 2.2 release updates our OpenJDK7 support to include the latest updates in u4 (http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk7u/jdk7u4/).

We believe that this 2.2 release takes IcedTea beyond u4. In addition to the changes in the public OpenJDK7 repository for u4, we also include a number of additional
fixes:

  • Don’t create debuginfo files if not stripping.
  • Generalise ucrypto cryptography tests.
  • Skip wrap mode tests if wrap mode is not available.
  • Zero fails to build in hsx22+, fix for hsx22 after runs gamma OK, hsx23 still nogo.
  • Support systems with outdated versions of gio 2.0.
  • Turn off strict aliasing for ExtensionSubtables.cpp (now S7171223 in OpenJDK8)

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

Please note support for alternative VM solutions (CACAO, Shark, Zero) may be lacking in this release. Specifically, Zero/Shark are known not to work with
HotSpot 23, the version included in this release. Patches are welcome; please contact the mailing list (distro-pkg-dev@openjdk.java.net) and/or file bugs (http://icedtea.classpath.org/bugzilla) under the appropriate component.

Full details of the release can be found below.

Happy hacking!

The IcedTea project provides a harness to build the source code from OpenJDK6 using Free Software build tools, along with additional features such as a PulseAudio sound driver and support for alternative virtual machines.

A new set of releases is now available for IcedTea6, which uses OpenJDK6 as its base:

  • IcedTea6 1.10.7 (based on OpenJDK6 b22)
  • IcedTea6 1.11.2 (based on OpenJDK6 b24)

Full details of each release can be found below.

PLEASE NOTE: With this release, the 1.9 series is now NO LONGER SUPPORTED, in a general push to reduce the release support burden to two releases per JDK release (6, 7, 8). We strongly recommend that you upgrade to a new release series; either of the two above for OpenJDK6. Alternatively, make the jump to OpenJDK7 with 2.0.1, 2.1.0 or 2.2.0 (to be released shortly).

We are proud to announce the release of GNU Classpath 0.99!

GNU Classpath, essential libraries for java, is a project to create free core class libraries for use with runtimes, compilers and tools for the java programming language.

The GNU Classpath developer snapshot releases are not directly aimed at the end user but are meant to be integrated into larger development platforms. For example JamVM, CACAO and Kaffe can make use of an
installed copy of GNU Classpath 0.99, while GCC (gcj) will use the developer snapshots as a base for future versions. For more projects based on GNU Classpath, see http://www.gnu.org/software/classpath/stories.html.

This release brings with it a number of interesting new features:

  • Addition of java.util.regex.Pattern.quote.
  • Addition of java.io.IOError.
  • Addition of java.io.Console.

There have also been many bugfixes over the past year. Those relevant to 0.99 can be found in our bug database.

With the 0.95 release, we switched fully towards the 1.5 generics work that we previously released separately as classpath-generics. All this work is now fully integrated in the main release and various runtimes
(gcj, cacao, jamvm, ikvm, etc) have been extended to take advantage of the new generics, annotations and enumeration support in the core library. As a consequence, only 1.5 capable compilers (currently the
Eclipse Compiler for Java (ecj) and Sun’s javac) may be used to build Classpath.

The GNU Classpath developers site provides detailed information on how to start with helping the GNU Classpath project and gives an overview of the core class library
packages currently provided.

For each snapshot release generated documentation is provided through the gjdoc tool, which is part of GNU Classpath 0.99. Full documentation on the currently implementated packages and classes can
be found at: http://developer.classpath.org/doc/ We are looking into how to extend the documentation experience in the future. Please contact the mailinglist if you would like to help with this effort.

For more information about the project see also:

GNU Classpath 0.99 can be downloaded from ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/classpath/ or one of the ftp.gnu.org mirrors

The following people helped with this release:

We would also like to thank the numerous bug reporters and testers! In addition, we’d like to extend our thanks to all those who’ve contributed over the years and have helped in building a thriving and friendly community around the GNU Classpath project.

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.

The IcedTea 2.1 release updates our OpenJDK7 support to include the latest updates in u2 as well as the security updates just released:

We believe that this 2.1 release takes IcedTea beyond u3. In addition to the changes in the public OpenJDK7 repository for u2 and the security updates, which is what we believe u3 is comprised of[*], we also include a number of additional fixes (three already in u4):

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

Please note support for alternative VM solutions (CACAO, Shark, Zero) may be lacking in this release, as there has been little development activity from the teams concerned since the 2.0 release, while OpenJDK itself has moved on to HotSpot 22. Patches are welcome; please contact the mailing list (distro-pkg-dev@openjdk.java.net) and/or file bugs under the appropriate component.

Full details of the release can be found below.

  • Omair Majid (S7102334 backport)
  • Damien Raude-Morvan (update of bootstrap build for u2)
  • Xerxes Rånby (CACAO and JamVM support)

We would also like to thank the bug reporters and testers!

To get started:

$ tar xzf icedtea-2.1.tar.gz
$ cd icedtea-2.1
 

Full build requirements and instructions are in INSTALL:

$ ./configure [--with-parallel-jobs --enable-pulse-java --enable-systemtap ...]
$ make

Happy hacking!

[*] It is difficult to make authoritative statements about u3 as the release is proprietary. Oracle still do not provide GPL binaries based on OpenJDK.

We are pleased to announce a new major release of IcedTea6, 1.11!

The IcedTea project provides a harness to build the source code from OpenJDK6 using Free Software build tools. It includes an ARM assembly port as well as support for alternate virtual machines such as CACAO and JamVM.
