OpenJDK 6: Sources for b07 and b08 published
By Darcy-Oracle on Apr 04, 2008
The sources for OpenJDK 6 b07 were posted on March 20 followed by b08 on March 27.
The most notable fixes in b07 were:
Resolving the last remaining JCK signature test failure (6636951); other JCK failures remain.
Making window decorations appear (6586752).
Updating to the 1.1 version of the OpenJDK™ trademark notification.
Enabling the out-of-the-box build to succeed without any binary plugs being present (6672710). If the plugs aren't used, neither the midi synthesizer nor SNMP will work at runtime.
After b07, Red Hat reported that the source bundle contained some suspect binary artifacts. In b08, we addressed all the make and src artifacts and some of the test ones (6679994). We're reviewing how to make the licensing of the remaining non-source files in the bundle clearer. Additionally, a separate build problem was addressed (6613927)
