 Log Message:
 Update classpath{,-gui} to 0.93.
 Patch provided by in PR 35262.
 And add patches to build with NetBSD 3.
 New in release 0.93 (Dec 8, 2006)
 * CORBA objects that exist on the same virtual machine and only are connected
   to another ORB are now accessed directly and no longer via network. It is
   the same feature that RMI implementation provides. These faster calls should
   be completely transparent, as the parameters are cloned, where required.
   Currently the direct calls are only possible for the non-deprecated objects
   that are connected to the ORB via POA.
 * The 'javah' tool has been added.  It requires the ASM library
   (see; it can be enabled with the --with-asm
   option to configure
 * Added the rmi and corbaname URL context factories for JNDI.
 * Fixes in the JNDI InitialContext now allows to plug-in user implementation.
 * Removed currentClassLoader method from
 * Added firstNonNullClassLoader method to
   vm/reference/gnu/classpath/ VMs are encouraged to
   provide a more efficient implementation.
 * Added aton method to vm/reference/java/net/
 * NetworkInterface has been implemented for systems that provide the
   `getifaddrs' function.
 * java.nio.channels.Selector implementations have been added that use
   the kqueue notification mechanism on Mac OS X and *BSD, and that use
   the epoll notification mechanism on Linux 2.6.
 * java.nio has been refactored to support more non-blocking operations
   natively. Blocking IO classes have been refactored to call
   non-blocking classes. Non-blocking accepts, connects, and
   scatter-gather IO should now be better supported.
 * HTML support for Swing has been greatly enhanced.
 Runtime interface changes:
 * and have been
   updated to keep native-modified state in the former, and to simplify
   the native code in our reference implementation.
 * has been expanded to better support native
   non-blocking IO. Most native state data (such as file descriptor
   integers) has been abstracted away into private state in the runtime
 * has been similarly changed.
 * has been changed to remove some
   functionality now provided by VMChannel; datagram socket-specific
   methods have also been moved here, deprecating VMPlainDatagramSocketImpl.
 * removed.
 New in release 0.92 (Aug 9, 2006)
 * GConf is used as a backend for java.util.prefs. GNU Classpath
   thanks to Mario Torre for this contribution!
 * has been renamed for binary compatibility. should be installed in a VM-specific directory rather
   than directly in /usr/lib.  Proprietary VMs put their
   implementations in VM-specific directories but search /usr/lib first.
   If GNU Classpath's is installed in /usr/lib it will create
   problems for people who use a proprietary VM to run AWT Native
   Interface applications.
 * The GdkGraphics2D backend has been made the default.  There is no
   longer an explicit dependency on Cairo, the --enable-gtk-cairo
   configure option is gone, and GTK 2.8 or higher is now required to
   build the GTK peers.
 * A Mozilla plugin, 'gcjwebplugin', is now included.  It introduces a
   dependency on the Mozilla plugin support headers and libraries.
 * New java implementations of png and gif imageio readers and writers.
 * A tools.texinfo document has been created and now includes
   documentation about:
   * appletviewer
   * gcjwebplugin
   * jarsigner
   * keytool
 * Several new tools are now included:
   * appletviewer
   * jar
   * native2ascii
   * serialver
   * keytool
   * jarsigner
   A new configure option --enable-tool-wrappers causes wrapper
   binaries to be built for VMs that support the JNI Invocation API.
 * javax.sound.midi providers have been added to read and
   write standard MIDI files.
 * A javax.sound.sampled .au and .wav file readers have been added.
 * New Java Virtual Machine Tool Interface header, jvmti.h.
 * AWT peers for X Windows based on Escher (a pure java X protocol
   implementation) have been added. So far it supports AWT 1.1 style
   Graphics, image loading via ImageIO (PNG, GIF and BMP images in this
   release), top level components as well as mouse and keyboard input.
   It is capable of running many Swing applications. Graphics2D and
   AWT widgets are not yet supported with this peer set.
 * GConf based util.peers backend (see the --enable-gconf-peer and
   --enable-default-preferences-peer configure options).
 * Support for batch importing trusted certificates for use with ssl
   connections (see script/
 * NIO scatter-gather channel support.
 Runtime interface changes:
 * A new class, VMURLConnection, is used to implement
   URLConnection.guessContentTypeFromStream.  The reference
   implementation uses libmagic (and falls back to doing nothing if
   libmagic is not available).
 * The method has been
   replaced with a JNI implementation of VMFile.toCanonicalForm() for
   GNU/Posix systems.
 * A new class, VMRuntimeMXBeanImpl, is used to implement
   the low-level support of the runtime management bean.
   VMs should use it to supply the input arguments and start
   time of the VM.  In addition, one of sun.boot.class.path
   or java.boot.class.path should be defined by the VM to
   support the optional boot class path access functionality.
 * The Unsafe class was moved back to the place expected by the JSR 166
   reference implementation.  We've also added a couple other new VM
   classes to support the JSR 166 code -- sun.reflect.Reflection and
 * Another new class, VMClassLoadingMXBeanImpl, is used to implement
   the low-level support of the class loading management bean.
   VMs need to supply it with information about how many classes
   are currently loaded, how many have been unloaded and whether
   verbose class loading output is on or off.  Provision should also
   be made for the latter to be toggled at runtime.
 * VMThreadMXBeanImpl is used to implement the low-level support
   of the thread management bean.  Providing this interface requires
   providing a fair amount of information about threads, including
   optional time and contention monitoring, and instances of the
   new ThreadInfo class in  getState() has also
   been added to the VMThread interface; this is required by the bean
   as well as java.lang.Thread.
 * VMMemoryMXBeanImpl is used to implement the low-level support
   of the memory management bean.  Providing this interface requires
   providing information about the levels of heap and non-heap memory,
   and the number of objects eligible for garbage collection.
 * VMCompilationMXBeanImpl is used to allow for optional compilation
   time support for Just-In-Time compilers.
 * VMMemoryPoolMXBeanImpl is used to implement the low-level support
   of the memory pool beans.  Providing this interface requires
   providing memory usage statistics for each supported bean.
 * VMManagementFactory provides the names of the memory pools,
   memory managers and garbage collectors maintained by the virtual
   machine.  These are used to create the beans by the ManagementFactory.
 * VMMemoryManagerMXBeanImpl and VMGarbageCollectorMXBeanImpl provide
   low-level support for memory managers (including the specific subclass
   of garbage collecting memory managers).  The interfaces for these
   require no more than enumerating the number of collections and the
   time spent (for garbage collectors) and a relationship to the memory
   pools (for all), along with a validity check.
