IKVM 0.42 Release Candidate 3

A new release candidate is available.

Changes since previous release candidate:

  • Changed version to 0.42.0.3.
  • Fix for bug #2887316.
  • Eyal Alaluf fixed a massive performance bug that caused IKVM.OpenJDK.Core.dll to be 1.4 MB too big and allocate a couple of MB of unnecessary strings on initialization.
  • Fixed JNI to use system class loader instead of bootstrap class loader when no Java code is on the stack.
  • Fixed JNI method lookup algorithm.

Binaries available here: ikvmbin-0.42.0.3.zip

IKVM.OpenJDK.Core must run on .net 3.5.
if only .net 2.0, we received the below exception:
Exception: System.MissingMethodException

Can .net framework be supported since 2.0?

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)
