IcedTea OpenJDK Harness

IcedTea6 1.9 is Updated to OpenJDK6 b20 with HotSpot 17

IcedTea6 version 1.9 is now available.

The IcedTea project is a harness for building the source code from OpenJDK6 using Free Software build tools. It comes with a Free Java plugin and Web start implementation, and supports additional architectures over and above x86, x86_64 and SPARC, via the Zero assembler port.

This release removes the VisualVM support and now uses a separate build directory for the OpenJDK build. It has been updated to OpenJDK6 b20 with HotSpot 17, and backports a new frame anchor and stack overflow code for Zero and Shark.
