So you gave us the changelog relative to 8.0 but as far as I can see 8.0 was never released... in fact the link you provide is to 8.0 RC1. Is that 8.0? How far away are we from 8.1? I'm looking to start converting a number of jars into dlls and would hate to have to redo my work to stay current if a new official version will be coming out soon (especially since everything is now strongly named and I would like to keep all of my dependencies consistent).

You can consider the RC a release.

So you are not going to publish new 8.x versions in Download section of http://www.ikvm.net?
We are trying to use javax.smartcardio from IKVM.OpenJDK.Misc.dll on Windows 8.1 64 bit, but TerminalFactory.getDefault().terminals().list() always return an empty list. Is there any workaround?

If I did publish an official release, it would include release notes similar to http://weblog.ikvm.net/2012/12/10/IKVMNET72Released.aspx with a note that points out that javax.smartcardio is not implemented.

I am a Java Application (extends javax.swing.JFrame) which I would like to launch via a C# app. Is there some sample code that allows to do it? I've looked around and unable to trigger the JFrame App, though adding the references show the available classes/functions.

Thank you and Regards

i am playing with IKVM to convert Lucene (full text search engine) and use it within .NET app.
I was able to successfully convert it and integrate it. Problem is that
when i search within index in LUKE (native Java UI for testing searches in Lucene)
results are different (score of documents and order of results) from my app in .NET.
I also try use FlexLucene (via nuget package), which also
use your IKVM to convert Lucene and results are same as in my app (wrong),
so problem is probably somewhere in conversion Lucene via IKVM. Is there anything i can do,
to help you track the issue? Small example?

IKVM is amazing tool, thank you

I run deeper in the problem mentioned in my post earlier post
and found that Luke is using different similarity then is default in Lucene.
So after proper setting similarity it works as expected.
Sorry for false alarm.
