Java Sun Microsystems has announced the release of an open-source version of its Java Development Kit for Java Platform Standard Edition. Sun has contributed the software to the OpenJDK Community as free software under the GNU GPLv2. Sun also announced that OpenJDK-based implementations can use the JCK (Java SE 6 Technical Compatibility Kit) to establish compatibility with the Java SE 6 specification. OpenBSD has already started importing the release.

Yeah. I thought that article was useless filler when I read it last year and my thoughts on that matter haven't changed.

"Open-source" makes a very handy transitive verb, thank-you-very-much. It improves the clarity and conciseness of the language. And if overly-pedantic grammar experts don't like it then they can email me and I will tell them in private just what they can do with their silly complaints. ;-)
