Java GNU Classpath 0.96 "Staying Alive!" and IcedTea 1.4 just got released. GNU Classpath is slowly turning into a bootstrapping platform for IcedTea/OpenJDK by providing the necessary free software plugs that are missing from Sun's OpenJDK to provide various GNU/Linux distributions with the fully free GPLed IcedTea Java platform implementation that will be in the Fedora (Werewolf), Debian, and Ubuntu (Gutsy) releases.

I grabbed an iso of Gobuntu and installed it a few days ago. Went to the usual java.sun.com, and was prompted to install either the Sun jre or IcedTea. I gave the free-software choice, and found that the National Weather Service storm radar java loop now works, and a game site I now use also runs java games quite well. Good on 'em!
