Java update: openjdk 7u75 available

A new release of IcedTea  is available. Version 2.5.4 of the “Java build framework” will create OpenJDK 7 “Update 75 Build 13” (resulting in a Slackware package openjdk-7u75_b13). The release announcement can be found on the distro-pkg-dev mailing list. It has a long long list of improvements and bugfixes – probably caused by the large […]

Last week: new Chromium, Flash, OpenJDK

Real life is taking precedence these days, and I have not been able to work on Slackware so much lately. I did release some updated packages last week. Chromium:  The update to my Chromium package came pretty shortly after the previous one. Major driver was the update (in Chrome) of the Pepper Flash plugin.

Not quite unexpected, since Oracle was huffing and puffing yesterday when the company joined other security-challenged companies like Microsoft and Adobe in what’s lovingly called “patch tuesday“, […]

OpenJDK 7u40_b60 built with IcedTea 2.4.2

Last time I updated my OpenJDK packages there was a ton of critical bugfixes which had been applied by the IcedTea community – fixes which Oracle had not yet added to its own version of Java. That version of OpenJDK called itself “Java7 Update 40 Build 31” aka openjdk-7u40_b31. It took a while for Oracle […]
