Classpath 0.17 has been released. This is mainly a bug fix release for issues found with eclipse 3.1 and free Swing applications just after our 0.16 release. But it also includes some exciting new features.

I’m curious when Classpath will be able to run real life swing applications. Will there ever be a day when Classpath or Harmony or whatever will be say 6 months behind Sun’s implementation and not years behind?
Too bad that Classpath didn’t come up with a viable implementation years ago. Maybe Java would have been existant on the desktop (opensource or not). The Swing API is nice, but Sun’s implementation has been a disaster.
