JIGS (Java Interface for GnuStep) allows Java programmers to use the GNUstep libraries from Java, but it is more than a set of bindings for GNUstep from Java: it takes advantage of the fact that Objective-C and Java are very similar languages to make it possible to use Objective-C classes from Java using exactly the same API (and vice versa). Moreover, JIGS can generate automatically wrappers for your own Objective-C GNUstep libraries.

Release Notes: A benchmarking suite was added, the release scripts were updated to the latest gnustep-make, and minor fixes were made.
Release Notes: Some fixes for solaris were applied, installation of wrapper libraries was improved and simplified, and warnings for unresolved class names were improved.
Release Notes: Sending messages with many arguments from ObjC to a Java object was fixed. Support was added for automagically loading Java classes when the ObjC runtime needs them, without having to register them manually.
