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.

well maybe open source wasn't a verb... languages are constantly changing and developing through common usage. If your use of the language clearly communicates your message then it has succeeded in its primary function. Considering the international effects of the internet and the popularity of sms messaging i'd say the language purists are going to be in for a bit of a bumpy ride as it seems to me that languages are changing more rapidly now (on a global scale) than ever.
