|| ||IcedTea 1.1 Release|
|| ||Fri, 13 Jul 2007 16:13:04 -0400|
We are proud to announce the release of IcedTea 1.1. This release
represents the stabilization of Crypto and SSL support.
The IcedTea project provides a harness to build the source code from
OpenJDK (http://openjdk.java.net) using Free Software build tools and
provides replacements libraries for the binary plugs with code from the
GNU Classpath project. More information on IcedTea can be found here:
- GNU Crypto security providers have been merged from GNU Classpath.
- SSL support by means of the IcedTls security provider.
- DebugInfo is always generated.
- Initial graphics work: Color management and raster fixes for
compatibility with LittleCMS, and work to satisfy libt2k requirements
- Uses OpenJDK build 15.
- Various bug fixes: http://icedtea.classpath.org/bugzilla/
The tarball and nosrc RPM can be downloaded here:
The following people helped with this release:
Gary Benson, Thomas Fitzsimmons, Kyle Galloway, Andrew Haley, Francis
Kung, Casey Marshall, Mark Wielaard and Lillian Angel.
We would also like to thank the bug reporters and testers!
To get started on a Fedora 7 GNU/Linux system with yum:
$ sudo yum install /usr/bin/ecj mercurial cups-devel lesstif-devel
libXp-devel xalan-j2 xerces-j2 libXt-devel libgcj
$ hg clone http://icedtea.classpath.org/hg/icedtea
$ cd icedtea
Full build instructions are in INSTALL, but this works:
When this completes you'll have a usable IcedTea in
openjdk/control/build/linux-i586 or openjdk/control/build/linux-amd64.
Alternatively, you can bootstrap by building IcedTea twice, once with
ecj/gcj and then with IcedTea:
$ make bootstrap
