IKVM 0.26 rc2

A new release candidate. It turns out I was a little over enthusiastic in restructuring the class loading to move dynamic class loading into a subclass (which I did to make it easier to build a version of IKVM.Runtime.dll that doesn't support dynamic class loading, to run on the Compact Framework). java.lang.reflect.Proxy support requires that you can dynamically load classes in the bootstrap class loader, so I added back support for that (in a hacky way by delegating to a bogus instance of DynamicClassLoader). This bug was reported by Chris Keller who was also kind enough to fix two socket bugs.


  • Restored the ability to dynamically load a class in the bootstrap class loader.
  • Changed PlainSocketImpl to throw java.net.SocketTimeoutException instead of java.io.InterruptedIOException when a timeout expires.
  • Changed PlainSocketImpl.read() to return zero instead of throwing an exception when a non-blocking socket read would block.

Files are available here: ikvm- (sources + binaries), ikvmbin- (binaries), ikvmbin-generics- (binaries built from generics branch)

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)
