Submission + - GNU Classpath responds to Sun OpenJDK

Mark Wielaard writes: "Ever since Sun announced they would release all of their Java ME, SE and EE implementations under the GPL people wondered what the reaction of the existing libre java community would be. The FSF was very positive about the move in their press release. Now the GNU Classpath developers have responded. The GNU Classpath 0.93 "Dreamland" release notes show their reaction is to produce lots of new code (nio for Darwin/BSD, Swing HTML support, Corba, Graphics2D through Cairo, plus screenshots) and has a lot of postive reactions from their developers (plus some from gcj, kaffe, ikvm, etc.) on the OpenJDK announcement. Seems this might turn out to be a very positive and constructive cooperation. Maybe this will make Java a first class programming language for GNU/Linux next year?"
