The BSD Java Porting project is pleased to annouce the availability of
patchset 1 "Sabretooth" for JDK 1.5, based on the JDK 1.5.0 SCSL source

Due to the work of Alexey Zelkin (the primary developer responsible for
this release) and Christos Zoulas (who provided NetBSD support) the first
patchset should provide at least some support for the following platforms:

	FreeBSD 4.10/i386
	FreeBSD 5.3/i386
	FreeBSD 5.3/amd64
	NetBSD 2.0/i386

As with most initial releases some caveats apply:

1. No plugin or javaws support.  These will follow in a future release.
2. Possible problems with graphical applications on FreeBSD 4.x.
3. This release is not suitable for production use and should be
   considered primarily for early adopters.
4. Support for FreeBSD 6-CURRENT is not guaranteed.

Please include Alexey in any problem reports for FreeBSD and Christos in
any problem reports for NetBSD.

The patchset may be downloaded at:


A java/jdk15 port for FreeBSD will follow shortly.
