OpenJDK 6: b16 Source Bundle Published

Update: Due to a misunderstanding, some of the expected fixes were missing from the original b16 source bundle. The corrected bundle has subsequently been posted.

On April 15, the source bundle for OpenJDK 6 b16 was published.

The previous source bundle was for b14. There was no distinct b15 per se; b15 was used to mark the transition from teamware to Mercurial. The b16 build is the first to be done purely in Mercurial.

There were 45 bug fixes in this build ranging from security fixes to sound updates; OpenJDK 6 b16 has all relevant security fixes from the recent JDK synchronized security release. A few fixes of note, during a build importing the binary plugs now defaults to false (6781572) and several fixes were applied that should render a few IcedTea patches unnecessary:

  • 6736248 EnumEditor bug. Class check incorrect

  • 6733718 test /java/awt/FullScreen/UninitializedDisplayModeChangeTest/ fails

  • 6593946 (bf) X-Buffer.compact() does not discard mark as specified

  • 6778493 Fix (langtools) ant build to honor fcs MILESTONE setting

    The other non security bugs fixed in this build are:

    • 6761791 Crash in the FontManager code due to use of JNIEnv saved by another thread

    • 6512707 "incompatible types" after (unrelated) annotation processing

    • 6632696 Writing to closed output files (writeBytes) leaks native memory (unix)

    • 6788196 (porting) Bounds checks in io_util.c rely on undefined behaviour

    • 6791458 FileInputStream/RandomAccessFile.read leaks memory if invoked on closed stream with len > 8k

    • 6792066 src/share/native/java/io/io_util.c clean-ups

    • 6819886 System.getProperty("os.name") reports Vista on Windows 7

    • 6821031 Upgrade OpenJDK's LittleCMS version to 1.18

    • 6800572 Removing elements from views of NavigableMap implementations does not always work correctly.

    • 6801020 Concurrent Semaphore release may cause some require thread not signaled

    • 6806019 38 JCK api/javax_sound/midi/ tests fails starting from jdk7 b46

    • 6803402 Race condition in AbstractQueuedSynchronizer

    • 6793757 Fix formatting of copyright notices in Gervill

    • 6794201 remove unused sources

    • 6808724 UninitializedDisplayModeChangeTest/DisplayModeChanger.java has wrong legal notice

    • 6821030 Merge OpenJDK Gervill with upstream sources, Q1CY2009

    • 6823445 Gervill SoftChannel/ResetAllControllers jtreg test fails after portamento fix from last merge

    • 6823446 Gervill SoftLowFrequencyOscillator fails when freq is set to 0 cent or 8.1758 Hz.

    • 6824976 Fix NAWK assignment in shell script jdk/make/java/java/genlocales.gmk

    • 6828183 testcase from SSR09_01 into jdk6-open hangs
