I'm no java guy but regarding the latest commit message I think 1.4.2:
jdk14 java Java Development Kit 1.4.2
Update to 1.4.2p5.
Important changes since last patchset:
. jdk14 port is now JDK 1.4.2 based!
. JavaWS distributing with jdk
. Runway problem fixed (fork() is no more problem for java apps)
. Sound support updated
. IPv6 support overhauled
. Drag'n'Drop support fixed (require open-motif mods)
As for now there's no more outstanding issues with this port!
FreeBSD port is also got a important of changes:
. optimized setup is now default (to get debuging bins/libs use WITH_DEBUG)
. bootstrap jdk autodetection. If WITH_LINUX_BOOTSTRAP is not set, then
it checks all known to work JDKs installed. If nothing found, forces
to install of linux-sun-jdk14
. Because of above change there's no NATIVE_BOOTSTRAP option anymore. If
native jdk14 is installed, it will be used by default.
