Congratulations to everyone who made this possible, it seems that JDK 
1.3.1 has been released as binary:

I have a question. Is the binary release the same as the 1.3.1p8_2 
port? If I have that installed on a production server should I be 
looking at upgrading to the binary?

I am also curious; the release said

 > "The Foundation is now financing efforts to accelerate the completion 
of [JDK 1.4.1]."

Does that mean that there are programmers being paid for their skills 
to complete this? Who are they? Personally I think it is great that 
money can be found to implement such core functionality in 
non-glamorous areas of FreeBSD, and make sure that someone works on it 
other than in their spare time between midnight and 3am. I hope Sun is 
contributing to this effort.
