Saxon.NET RC1

The Saxon.NET developers have announced RC1 of Saxon.NET. I like this project, because it is a good example of the kind of project I envisioned when I started IKVM.NET. They take an existing Java library and convert it to a .NET assembly using ikvmc and they add important value by packaging and testing the converted assembly and by providing examples and utilities.


In unrelated news, I've been able to successfully run my internal test suite on x64 (An AMD64 system running Windows XP Professional x64 Edition RC1 running the Whidbey February CTP). I had to work around one Whidbey February CTP specific bug and had to make a change to VMThread.stop() relating to a Whidbey change in Thread.Abort(). It's too bad there isn't an x64 Windows version of Eclipse yet, because that would make a good real world test.

Heh, IKVM is probably the first bytecode execution environment on Win64 then :) congratulations!

I'm considering using IKVM to port a commercial product, but one thing I am concerned about is the linking to the GNU Classpath DLL ... has anyone investigated the licensing implications of this? Does anything that is converted with IKVM need to be under the GNU license? I looked around for a FAQ about this, but I didn't find anything.
