Early Bird Kit Update on OpenJDK 6
By darcy on Dec 24, 2007
Hofstadter's law has struck again and the previous plans for an OpenJDK 6 code drop by the end of 2007 will be delayed. (The backward branch of OpenJDK 6 has had good growth, but the engineering for it was not far enough along at the time of Mercurial transition in JDK 7 to serve as a retcon progenitor, so the eventual repositories for OpenJDK 6 and 7 will not be related in a Mercurial sense.)
I've submitted a project proposal for OpenJDK 6 and will give further updates in early 2008. Happy holidays!
