OS/2 and eComStation OpenJDK had been released as GA for OS/2 and eComStaion. This allows eCS-OS2 users to run modern Java apps on their platform. The development is open source and had been in part sponsored by donations of the community.

I agree completely: I think there used to be an educational discount for my region, which seems to have gone. In terms of their offical suppliers, information also appears to be outdated (I know you can download verson 2 but some of us still have a penchant for the physcial, and for the UK at least you only get pricing info on V1.2 http://www.ecomstation.co.uk/html/prices.html)

Poking around some of the other European suppliers (German language) sites indicates that a student/home user rate is available:

which isn't *too* bad (esp. since you have up to 5 licences), but still high enough to put me off personally.

If I were Serenity Systems I would be doing a lot more to get information about my product out that was current and more easily understood (is there still a V2 upgrade from Warp 3, at all, as there was for 1.2? If not, why not - a clear explanation would be nice).
