OpenJDK6 1.6.0-b22 RC2

April 01, 2011 by

The latest version of OpenJDK 6 is 1.6.0-b22 RC2 released on 28.03.2011. This is a second release candidate version that fixes a number of bugs in the previous release candidate as well as updates OpenJDK to beta 22.

You also need the newest Odin with this OpenJDK6.


From the OpenJDK6 changelog:

- Updated OpenJDK sources to b22

- Fixed and improved system tray support

- Fixed: Sound did not work in LIBPATHSTRICT=T mode (Odin bug).

- Fixed: SIGABRT that would unexcpectedly terminate some Java applications, e.g. IzPack based installers (GCC compiler bug).

- Fixed: Crash during Drag'n'Drop operations in some Java applications, e.g. JAlbum (Odin bug).

- Fixed DLL loading code in the JVM that would print a useless message when one of the required DLLs is not found.

- A bunch of smaller fixes in Odin libraries that should improve OpenJDK behavior.


From the Odin changelog:

- general: Workaround the OS/2 loader bug in LIBPATHSTRICT=T mode

- general: A big bunch of fixes (headers and so on) for SDK mode.

- odincrt: Fixed a tiny typo in DosQueryModuleHandleStrict() that could sometimes cause 100% CPU load at application startup

- kernel32: VirtualQuery: Succeed with MEM_FREE for one page when querying an unallocated address in the private arena

- kernel32: Report ERROR_MOD_NOT_FOUND from LoadLibrary() when it fails to load a DLL due to missing import modules, to mimic Win32 behavior.

- tools/wrc: Restored generating GAS output by default. MASM output is now generated by specifying the -M option.

- shell32: Shell_NotifyIcon(): Create a copy of the supplied icon because the caller may DestroyIcon() on it at any time (which would cause systray to display an empty rectangle). This matches Windows behavior.

- shell32: Implemented support for xsystray (Extended System Tray widget for XCenter) which provides more functionality (in particular, "TaskbarCreated" message broadcasting).
