Analyst: New developer demographics favor Linux, PHP

,----[ Quote ]
| But there does appear to be a definite 
| expiration date on these old-school 
| programming languages. Interest in dynamic 
| languages like PHP and Ruby is not 
| complementary to Java and .Net, as Savio 
| Rodrigues found, but rather is happening at 
| their expense.
| The "youthquake" threatens to shake up old 
| hierarchies.
| This demographic shift is indicative of 
| much more than a passing fad in lightweight 
| development, reflecting, rather, a deep and 
| abiding interest in open source, as I've 
| written, but one that is maturing.


IcedTea6 1.8 Released!

,----[ Quote ]
| We are proud to announce the release of 
| IcedTea6 1.8.
| The IcedTea project provides a harness to 
| build the source code from OpenJDK7 using Free 
| Software build tools. It also includes the 
| only Free Java plugin and Web Start 
| implementation, and support for additional 
| architectures over and above x86, x86_64 and 
| SPARC via the Zero assembler port.



IcedTea 1.5 Adds PowerPC Java Port

,----[ Quote ]
| The IcedTea project added a PowerPC Java port (both 32 and 64 bit) of 
| OpenJDK. IcedTea 1.5 now also tracks the mercurial repo, provides better 
| GNU/Linux integration by using standard system libraries (libpng, libjpeg, 
| zlib, giflib) and can be bootstrapped with the free gcj/ecj/classpath 
| toolchain.     


IcedTea: The First 100% Compliant Open-Source Java

,----[ Quote ]
| This week it was announced that the RedHat-initiated IcedTea project, along 
| with OpenJDK, has reached 100% compliance with the Java Test Compatibility 
| Kit (TCK), officially becoming the first completely open-source 
| (GPL-licensed) Java implementation to pass the TCK.   

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
