New Development Snapshot

Since it has been a while, time for a new development snapshot.


  • Expose annotations on statically compiled code as java.lang.reflect.Proxy instead of the custom attribute object, to deal with broken code that assumes annotations are always implemented with Proxy. Fix for #3254823.
  • Added delegate conversion for java.lang.reflect.InvocationHandler to ikvm.runtime.Delegates.
  • Changed build to specify "-cp dummy" for javac compile to avoid accidentally picking up classes on the CLASSPATH.
  • Added experimental (i.e. not yet finished) -proxy: option to ikvmc to pre-generate proxy class.
  • Added method prologue support to remap file.
  • Updated AtomicInteger, AtomicIntegerArray, AtomicLonger, AtomicLongerArray to use .NET 2.0 interlocked operations.
  • Added stind_i8 opcode to remap file.
  • Changed build and JNI code to use different names for the Windows x86 and x64 versions of the native dll.
  • Added missing lib/*.properties files (in particular lib/calendars.properties which caused java.util.JapaneseImperialCalendar to fail).
  • Retain reflection field ordering for ikvmc compiled code (not required by spec, but to improve compatibility with broken code).
  • AWT: Fixed a StringIndexOutOfBoundsException if RTL and LTR text are used in one string.
  • AWT: Added emulation for fixed metrics to make drawString and stringWidth compatible.
  • AWT: Added workaround for bug in OpenJDK 6 on Windows. The result is that the needed width for painting of labels and buttons can be 1 pixel larger as the prefered size. The result was labels with "...".
  • IKVM.Reflection: Fixed TypeBuilder.DefineNestedType() to accept a null reference for the interfaces parameter.

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)
