Release Notes: This release merges in GNU Classpath 0.90, zlib, and fastjar, and updates the included boehm-gc to 6.6 and gjdoc to 0.7.7. New ports were added to the blackfin CPU, DROPS, FreeBSD on Alpha and Itanium, OpenBSD on PowerPC, and DragonFly BSD. Support for Cygwin and OpenBSD has been improved, and simple direct threading support has been added to the interpreter. There are many bugfixes and small improvements.
Release Notes: There were many cleanups, warning fixes, and bug fixes. Tools.jar was moved to the location where Maven 1 expects it, so that Maven 1 builds now work. The core class library was updated to GNU Classpath 0.18. Native library loading for Cygwin and Darwin was fixed and merged with GNU Classpath. Kaffe's home-grown system class loader was replaced by GNU classpath's system class loader. JIT fixes were applied for sparc, x86 and powerpc. JVMPI has been cleaned up so that JMP works now.
Release Notes: The merge with GNU Classpath has been mostly finished, including new and improved support for AWT and Swing. A new nano-X AWt backend had been added. JNI support has been improved to the 1.2 level, with partial 1.4 support. Weak references have been implemented. Stack pointer and stack size handling have been reworked. This release adds new ports to FreeBSD on x86-64, Darwin on x86, and HP-UX on IA-64. DNSJava, Jessie, JZLib, and gjdoc have been merged in, as well as a JIT for PowerPC and the Boehm-Weiser garbage collector.
Release Notes: Support for security policy files has been added. Fixes for crypto, JSSE, Posix-threads, and sound support have been made. More code has been merged with GNU Classpath. New documentation on porting kaffe has been included. Various cleanups and refactorings have been performed.
Release Notes: More code has been merged from GNU Classpath: java.beans, java.util.Date, java.util.jar, java.net, java.io, and javax.swing.EventListenerList. Further NIO and JVMPI support has been implemented. A bug in java.security.SecureRandom which may have security implications has been fixed. In the VM core, there have been various JIT and interpreter fixes for multiple platforms, as well as build fixes for powerpc64 and improvements to IPv6 support. Kaffe's Java compiler (KJC) has seen some bugfixes as well. Finally, there have been lots of minor bugfixes, and small code cleanups.
Release Notes: Most of the verifier has been checked in, though it's been disabled by default as it requires some further work. The garbage collector and memory consumption of the JIT compiler have been improved. Support for RMI, JVMPI, NIO, and java.text has been improved further. New packages for JSSE were added. Many configuration/compilation fixes have been made, among others for arm-linux, parisc-hpux, parisc-linux, and sparc-solaris. Kaffe's class library has been more completely merged with GNU Classpath's, including collections, and many networking, I/O, and zip classes.
Release Notes: Much of the new bytecode verifier has been added (but not all of it). Some JNI 1.2/1.4 features have been added, as well as the beginnings of JVMPI support. Many configuration/compilation fixes have been made, including: NetBSD, OpenBSD, Linux 2.0, Linux/S390, AmigaOS, OpenBSD/SPARC, and Cygwin. Many class library bugs have been fixed for this release.
Release Notes: This release has been ported to x86-64 GNU/Linux, RISC OS, Playstation 2 GNU/Linux, and SuperH GNU/Linux. A Qt-based AWT backend was added. Support for javax.sound from tritonus.org, for JAXP from GNU JAXP, java.util.regex from GNU regexp, and a new java.lang.reflect.Proxy implementation from GNU Classpath were merged in. Kaffe now comes with a built-in XML parser (Aelfred2). This release includes a new version of KJC (2.1B). Other development tools like native2ascii, javah, jar, and javap were updated. Kaffe's new build system supports user-defined class library profiles.
Release Notes: This release has been ported to ia64 GNU/Linux, S390 GNU/Linux, PA-RISC GNU/Linux, and Darwin (Mac OS X). A JIT port was added for Alpha on Compaq Tru64 and GNU/Linux. PowerPC is now supported without libffi. A new version of KJC (2.1A with patches from kopi CVS) is now used. New encoding converters based on iconv() were added. Lots of bugfixes were made.
Release Notes: This release fixes many bugs and contains changes in preparation for the merging of the desktop and custom editions.
