Everyone calm down about Java 1.6 on Leopard. Calm down and get busy like Landon Fuller did this weekend. He blogged about it here FreeBSD’s 1.6 JDK on Mac OS X. And then he posted to the OpenJDK discussion list ten minutes ago. Clearly, it isn’t a satisfying answer, he reports “partial success” with some serious issues (stack alignment). If more people took initiative and didn’t sit around, blogging about whether Steve Jobs likes or dislikes Java we would probably already have something workable.
There has been a lot of discussion of creating a porting project on the OpenJDK mailing lists lately, if this is something you think is important, you can keep track of the discussions on the OpenJDK General Discussion List and there is an ongoing discussion about porting OpenJDK to other platforms
