SableVM 1.1.8 (Free Java Virtual Machine) Released !!!

Our previous release wasn't that long ago, but there has been quite a few improvements since then, mainly:

  • Eclipse 2 and 3 works now,
  • It is now possible to run SableVM with GNU Classpath CVS directly with the help of -Xgnuclasspath: option of java-sablevm command (this is intended mainly for GNU Classpath developers, as regular users are adviced to use sablevm-classpath),
  • We merged into sablevm-classpath very fresh GNU Classpath CVS code on Dec 28,
  • We implemented a few missing JNI functions, improved error messages and fixed quite a few bugs.

For the full list of improvements and changes see the SableVM 1.1.8 Java Virtual Machine release announcement

Debian packages are ready for upload at http://gadek.homelinux.org/debian-1.1.8/ and should hit the archive soon (thanks to Jeff Bailey!). Given the cumulative improvements since SableVM 1.1.6-6 I think this new version should definitely go into Sarge.

SableVM Java VM Hall Of Fame updated, and...

Our small "Hall of Fame" is apparently quite popular (according to webalizer, at least :) so I googled a bit and again added a couple of new entries to it, including...

Snap Development Kit -- this one was especially interesting. I think binding together a Free Java Virtual Machine (SableVM, of course :-), class library, compiler and maybe some other basic java tools is the way to go. Would *you* care to help?
