* New upstream release (CVS HEAD):
* patch from Casey Marshall make it possible to run tomcat5 with kaffe
(closes: #281717), new upstream should also work with Linux kernel
2.6.9 (closes: #280664).
* Dalibor Topic fixed the build on IA64 (closes: #284177)
* debian/patches/main.c.patch: removed (applied upstream)
* debian/old-patches: removed because 00JNIPatch, 03SparcPatch, do not
apply no more.
* debian/unpatches: removed because 01Unix-JThread-_Signal_cPatch,
02SoundPatch, do not apply no more.
* debian/man/javah.kaffe.1: added (closes: #284034).
Please, test heavily, file bug reports (or re-open those which should not have been closed). If everything is ok, I'll ask on debian-release to let it go to Sarge if it's still possible

First cooking courses with friends. Lot of wine, lot of fun, lot of learning...
Cook for my wife a part of what I learnt.

I am Mario.
I like to jump around, and would lead a fairly serene and aimless existence if it weren't for my friends always getting into trouble. I love to help out, even when it puts me at risk. I seem to make friends with people who just can't stay out of trouble. What Video Game Character Are You?

First, there is no Java plugin for Mozilla in the latest IBM's JDK on Powerpc, there is now gcjwebplugin, running on many architectures! For several weeks now IBM's JDK (1.4.1 and 1.4.2) does not run at all on my Debian/sid powerpc. I cannot run ant, tomcat, nothing. I got a javacore_blablabla file with a lot of debug information. SableVM, gic/gcj, Kaffe and JamVM already run Ant (nearly) without problem.
Update: a hack with an envvar is necessary: 'export JITC_PROCESSOR_TYPE=6'
The next peace I need is Tomcat4. It's now done (screenshot). The work around was to remove the xmlParserAPIs.jar and xercesImpl.jar from the tomcat4 directory (/usr/share/tomcat4/common/lib) and replace them with a symlink to gnujaxp.jar (in /usr/share/java). And nearly everything was fine (Struts does not seem to work, but all the servlet examples did work, and every JSP examples did work except two: one because the mail api was not in the tomcat classpath and the other because of an exception in org.apache.jasper.servlet.JspServlet.service... I think it was the same exception that occured with Struts.
JDEE for Emacs seems very bounded to proprietary JDK's but I'd like to investigate a little more to have it working with free JDK's as I use it for sometimes now and I'm very happy with it. Another great environment that would be cool to run is Eclipse...
Long life to Free Java! ;-)

I tried it and found some bugs but I have also been surprised it works very well with an old applet. I was looking for 'etch' because I did not remember it from Toys Story and found this site: http://www.etch-a-sketch.com/html/onlineetch.htm with an 'Etch-A-Sketch' Applet. And it did work! ().
Many thanks Michael!

Kaffe entered to testing last night! This is a great news because a lot of the effort in MovingJavaToMain was based on building these java packages with Kaffe. Another good news is that a lot of these packages can now be build with SableVM (which is also in testing). We have two powerful free java virtual machines in main and in testing. Of course, there is also gcj/gij and a new virtual machine has just enter the pool, packaged by Michael Koch: jamvm.
libservlet2.3-java in main
The other great thing yesterday was the move of libservlet2.3-java from contrib to main. This will make it possible to move approximatively 5 packages from contrib to main!

I'm still waiting for libcommons-pool-java to enter in the pool in main, then I'll be able to move 3 more java packages from contrib to main.

It has been a long time I did not spend the whole night out! My wife and I went on the birthday of one of my best friend. A terrific night as you can see with the pictures. I saw friends (like Pocket and his girlfriend Clémentine, Nico who did not changed, Youh who will be travelling in South Corea next week for a year or more!, Axel's girlfriend Nathalie, Pipo, Jean-Pol, Phil, well known DJ Philippe Kosak, and another old school DJ I know for years!), some, I didn't meet for more than 5 years!.. Also Gilles, one of the best blues guitarist I know (maybe the only one I know but he is very good!), I didn't see him for years!.. The bad thing was we came home at 7.00am and I have to be on the tennis court at 9.00am!.. The other guy was not so good and stopped after I won 6-2 1-0!.. I came home at 8.00pm... Sunday was a hard day!..

My preference is Whitespace:
Quote from the website:
What is Whitespace?
Most modern programming languages do not consider white space characters (spaces, tabs and newlines) syntax, ignoring them, as if they weren't there. We consider this to be a gross injustice to these perfectly friendly members of the character set. Should they be ignored, just because they are invisible? Whitespace is a language that seeks to redress the balance. Any non whitespace characters are ignored; only spaces, tabs and newlines are considered syntax.

As after the September 11 attacks, I always thought that 'bombing Afghanistan' was not a solution (and was more like a punishing expedition), I'm sure the response to terrorism must not be to be afraid but to integrate more easily and more deeply Muslims and other cultures in our occidental culture.

I hope I'll be able to put some libraries in main but the most important thing I'd like to achieve is to be able to make a web page with all the debian packages in contrib and the reason why they are in contrib.
If you want to help, don't hesitate ;)

Updating the 1.1.3 release will solve some 2 RC bugs and other bugs.
Yes it's an NMU, but it's too important to wait. I want a good kaffe in Sarge!
