One Year Ago Today

It's been exactly one year since I started blogging about the development of IKVM.NET. I actually started development about a month earlier on the 22nd of May.

To celebrate this, I've created a time-line of significant (or interesting) events that happened in the past year.

2002-05-22

Started development on a project called "bytecode". I started by porting my Java class file reader from Java to C#.

2002-06-19

Started my IK<<VM.NET Radio weblog about "The Development of a Java VM for .NET"

2002-06-27

"Hello, World!" runs for the very first time. Replaced the << in the name with a dot, because Radio doesn't escape the title properly.

2002-08-07

First version of netexp is released. Java code can now directly use .NET types.

2002-08-12

The static compiles makes its appearance. For the first time the binary snapshot contains a statically compiled classpath.dll.

2002-09-03

Very basic AWT support is introduced.

2002-09-09

Class loader support makes its first appearance.

2002-10-25

Created the IKVM.NET SourceForge project. Dropped the first dot from the name.

2002-12-28

Eclipse starts up!

2003-01-17

Zoltan Varga gets IKVM to run HelloWorld on Mono.

The IKVM.NET blog celebrates its first birthday.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to IKVM.NET in the past year. It's been great fun and I hope the coming year will be as productive as this past year has been.

Congratulations Jeroen

It has been a very interesting year. I have daily looked at your Block to see if you had any news, and always been disappointed when you have posted that you was off for vacation or other stuff. When I look at the project it seems to me that your part is done (only bug fixes)? It seems like the work load is in the classpath project? What is your plans/dreams for the next year? A plug-in for VS.NET or SharpDevelop? It could be nice to know what you have in mind.

One more time… Congratulation! I’m already looking forward for the next birthday.

Cheers

Happy Birthday!

GNU Classpath has seen much improvements that can be traced back to all your wonderful work on IKVM.NET.

Thanks,

Mark

I apologize for the lameness of this, but the comment spam was driving me nuts. In order to be able to post a comment, you need to answer a simple question. Hopefully this question is easy enough not to annoy serious commenters, but hard enough to keep the spammers away.

Anti-Spam Question: What method on java.lang.System returns an object's original hashcode (i.e. the one that would be returned by java.lang.Object.hashCode() if it wasn't overridden)? (case is significant)
