Update to 1.4.2p5.
Important changes since last patchset:
. jdk14 port is now JDK 1.4.2 based!
. JavaWS distributing with jdk
. Runway problem fixed (fork() is no more problem for java apps)
. Sound support updated
. IPv6 support overhauled
. Drag'n'Drop support fixed (require open-motif mods)
As for now there's no more outstanding issues with this port!
FreeBSD port is also got a important of changes:
. optimized setup is now default (to get debuging bins/libs use WITH_DEBUG)
. bootstrap jdk autodetection. If WITH_LINUX_BOOTSTRAP is not set, then
it checks all known to work JDKs installed. If nothing found, forces
to install of linux-sun-jdk14
. Because of above change there's no NATIVE_BOOTSTRAP option anymore. If
native jdk14 is installed, it will be used by default.
I am pleased to announce first public -beta patchset of FreeBSD/Java port
for JDK 1.4.1. This is complete and close to production quality
native JDK with both working client and server native JVMs. Local micro
benchmarks shown very little difference between Linux and FreeBSD JVMs in
One of important points of this patchset that it marks point when we are
very close to passing of Sun TCK tests. Currently about 20 of >27000 tests
are known to be broken (tests were run at -STABLE). If testing of this
patchset will be smooth and founding of this work will be continued we
may expect to have binary distribution of JDK 1.4.1 in April or begining
BUT, don't forget that even TCK tests can't cover all possible problems
and this is -beta patchset. Keep your eyes open and report your problems
