Security update: OpenJDK 7u55 (created with icedtea 2.4.7)

On “patch tuesday”, two days ago, Oracle released their April update of the Java SE platform. The new version of Java is “7 update 55″ and addresses several vulnerabilities. The IcedTea team have now prepared version 2.4.7 of their OpenJDK build framework which will compile an OpenJDK version in sync with Oracle’s release. Please read the announcement […]

OpenJDK 7u51 (created with IcedTea 2.4.4).

Released today: new versions of IcedTea. It usually takes a while for an announcement to appear on Andrew’s blog, but the mailing list announcement was enough for me.

It’s Java security update time again, folks. The IcedTea team just released version 2.4.1 of their “build harness” (which builds the OpenJDK source code using Free Software tools and allows for other  features such as support for alternative virtual machines and ARM support). The new IcedTea will build OpenJDK 7 Update 40 Build 31 – […]

OpenJDK 7 Update 40 (yes, 40) courtesy of IcedTea 2.4.0

After so many “critical bugfix releases” that have plagued Java during the past year, it is nice to see some real hard work being made available to the public. The IcedTea developers have been preparing their first major release since 2.3.0 of August last year. Today, icedtea-2.4.0 was announced on the mailing list and on […]
