A new release candidate is available.

Changes since previous release candidate:

  • Changed version to

in ikvm version 0.42 RC0 the assembly IKVM.OpenJDK.XML.dll was splitted in several XML assemblies. For my application I only needed IKVM.OpenJDK.XML.API.dll and IKVM.OpenJDK.XML.Parse.dll. This means smaller filesize in the dependancies.

In RC1 there is now the one IKVM.OpenJDK.XML.dll file. What does this means for further ikvm releases? Is this the preferred way?

Hello Sebastian,

Nothing changed, so I think you're looking at the wrong set of files or something like that.

szjavavm looks like a weekend hack, not anything that's useful.

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)
