Java The first preview release of RoboVM has just been made available. The primary goal of the project is to make it possible to develop native iOS applications in Java that use native iOS Cocoa Touch APIs. The RoboVM compiler translates Java bytecode into ARM or x86 machine code. The core classes (java.lang, java.util, java.io, etc.) are based on Android's runtime classes. RoboVM's compile time tools are GPLv2 licensed while the runtime is released under business-friendly licenses, mostly the Apache License v2.0.

Yeah, I've been pretty bummed to see GCJ development almost stop, but this project still seems to be moving forward at least (not exactly the same goals as GCJ, but still looks interesting): http://oss.readytalk.com/avian/index.html
