IcedTea6 Version 1.7.1
Version 1.7.1 of the IcedTea6 harness for building source code from OpenJDK6 is now available to download.
This version includes formatting changes and other fixes to match upstream, and implements Shark host Central Processing Unit feature autotuner. The frame embedding code has been re-designed so that the applet is now dynamically packed into the given handle. This breaks IcedTea6’s reliance on the the browser always providing a handle in a certain sequence. IcedTea6 now encodes new lines, carriage returns, and other special characters before sending them to Java side.
s390 support for TCK setup helper script has now been added.
The tarball download link is embedded in a post at developer Andrew’s blog.
