Java The IcedTea project provides a harness to build the source code from OpenJDK using Free Software build tools and provides replacements libraries for the binary plugs with code from the GNU Classpath project. This release adds the "Zero-assembler" port which will allow IcedTea to run with zero (ok, minimal) porting effort on any GNU/Linux architecture that has a gcc and libffi port available. JNLP support has been added through the addition of NetX, which makes a lot of java webstart applications work out of the box. Check out the screenshots. Gary Benson will give a talk about the zero-assembler port at FOSDEM during the free Java developer meeting where GNU Classpath, OpenJDK and many other Free Java projects come together to plan the future of Free Java on GNU/Linux.

Regarding jamvm and cacaojvm: Do you have any performance figures to show? Last time I tried cacaojvm with e.g. scimark it was very, very far from being an alternative to the JVM from either Sun, IBM or Bea (or JET and GCJ).

Impressive in terms of what they have succeded. Not in terms of absolute performance. Sorry if I am not clear.
