This prerelease mainly brings us up to date with the just-released GNU Classpath 0.16. It also includes a few new bugfixes done after the -pre2 release.
But the real point of this release is to find and fix any remaining bugs so that the release could happen really soon. Ideally the final SableVM SDK for Java 0.12 will be identical to pre3, so if you're not a risky type you still can pretty safely try out this prelease.
Just a short reminder about what's inside
- SableVM and SableVM Classpath (up to date with GNU Classpath 0.16 release plus bugfixes)
- CP-Tools (javap, javah, serialver, ...)
- GJDOC (javadoc drop-in replacement)
- LibFFI and LibPOPT (now part of SableVM)
Please give it a try, run Ant, Eclipse, Jetty, Tomcat, or your favourite app and just send a short mail to email@example.com about how it went. Thanks in advance!
