I know many people tried out the the first preview release of SableVM SDK. I had a few days and some feedback (thanks!) and now the time has come for another one. Quite a few NEW things are in it:
- Added GJDOC (javadoc equiv.),
- Added CP-TOOLS (javap, javah, rmi*, serialver, and others),
- Fixed all problems reported in the first preview,
- Updated Class library to GNU Classpath 0.15.
And of course it includes all the software that was present in the first preview release (or prerelease):
- SableVM Classpath
How and where can you get it? Very easily. Just grab the tarball http://sablevm.org/people/gadek/sablevm-sdk-1.12-pre2.tar.gz, then unpack it, ./configure && make, then 'su' and 'make install'. If you didn't specify a --prefix, in /usr/local/lib/sablevm you'll find the most commonly used tools normally found in a JAVA_HOME-like structure.
I have tested this new package with various compilation options, in differently configured environment, but there's nothing like real-life test. Have you spotted a bug, or you have an idea for improving this package - please let me know!
