Java News from Monday, November 12, 2007

Landon Fuller has made significant progress on porting the FreeBSD JDK to Mac OS X. Not everything works yet, but Swing does, which is further than I think anyone else has gotten. According to Fuller, "There are, of course, still some significant bugs, and I'm continuing to work on hotspot Darwin i386 ABI stack alignment issues. I think things are probably a week or so away from a day-to-day usable amd64/Leopard release, and farther for i386/Leopard & Tiger."
