New Development Snapshot

Final 8.1 development snapshot. Release candidate 0 will be next (after .NET 4.6 RTM).

Changes:

  • Updated HOWTO reference to OpenJDK 8u45.
  • Extract Windows version from kernel32.dll to avoid version lie. Idea stolen from OpenJDK.
  • Moved unused field removal optimization to a later stage in the compilation.
  • Made field removal optimization check more strict to only remove final fields and not remove fields that have annotations.
  • Added support for automatically passing in fields to "native" methods.
  • Various minor clean ups.
  • Added FieldWrapper.IsSerialVersionUID property to properly (and consistently) detect serialVersionUID fields.
  • Improved side effect free static initializer detection.
  • Improved -removeassertions ikvmc optimization to remove more code (esp. allow otherwise empty static initializers to be optimized away).

Binaries available here: ikvmbin-8.1.5666.zip

I've been using IKVM for about 1 1/2 years now and want to say 'thank you' for your great work. Would it be possible to update the NuGet package https://www.nuget.org/packages/IKVM/ ? I'd also like to have a development NuGet package where unstable versions are published. Would you mind updating NuGet ;)

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)
