OpenJDK Proposal for BSD Porting Project

01 Aug 2008, 16:49 PDT

With Sun's approval to merge the BSD Java patchset to OpenJDK squared away, Dalibor Topic has proposed project sponsorship for the BSD porting project.

If sponsorship is approved, the BSD Java Port -- which includes all the Soylatte changes -- will be able to officially join the OpenJDK project. Combined with the zero-assembler port, we could see OpenJDK 6/7 support in the near future for Mac x86 and PPC machines.

I'm very excited to see OpenJDK/BSD support progressing due to the hard work Dalibor Topic, Greg Lewis, and Kurt Miller.
