A Nice Bag of Coins (17 proposals so far)
By pelegri on Mar 07, 2009
Nice progress on Project Coin, the project for accepting small changes to the Java Language.
Joe is reporting over 17 proposals in his latest post, including familiar names like Neal Gafter, Josh Bloch and Bob Lee, but also many others; I tried to get an up-to-date count from the Mail Archive but there was hard to count... which is good.
I think the project will be a big success, and may be a good indicator of the type of activity possible through OpenJDK. I'll keep you posted, in the meantime, check out Joe's status update and his Strings in Switch proposal.
