Release


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.

A huge thanks to everyone who helped us test and reported bugs! And a special thanks to Omair for acting as release manager for this release!

To get started:

$ tar xf icedtea6-1.11.tar.gz
$ cd icedtea6-1.11
$ ./configure
$ make

Full build requirements and instructions are available in the INSTALL file.

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 for the IcedTea6 series is now available, which includes a number of bug fixes for issues reported since the last release. Full details are below.

Please note that, with the imminent release of IcedTea6 1.11, this will be the last release in the 1.8 series. We also generally recommend that users start to investigate Java 1.7 and the 2.0 series of IcedTea releases, as support for the older 1.6 releases will begin to diminish.

We are pleased to announce the release of IcedTea 2.0!

This release is the first release of IcedTea based on OpenJDK7 since it was released for general availability. It includes all changes from the public OpenJDK7 tree, together with the latest security fixes and a number of IcedTea enhancements.

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.

Please note that CACAO is not supported in this release as it does not yet support the current OpenJDK7. Support is likely to be restored in a future release.
