libgcj 2.95


August 1, 1999

We're pleased to announce the availability of libgcj 2.95.  Libgcj is
the runtime library for the GNU compiler for the Java(TM)[1] language.
Version 2.95 works with the recently released gcc 2.95.[2]

This is the first real net release of libgcj; previously it was
available only via anonymous cvs and cvs snapshots.  Since it was
first made available via cvs, libgcj has seen many bug fixes, several
new ports, and greatly increased functionality (e.g., the addition of
java.net).

This release has been built and tested on a few platforms, notably
various versions of x86 Linux and Solaris.  A full list of
known-working ports is not currently available.

libgcj 2.95 is available here:

   ftp://sourceware.cygnus.com/pub/java/libgcj-2.95.tar.gz

However, we'd prefer that you download it from a mirror instead.[3]

For more information on libgcj and the gcj project, see the web page:

The web site includes contact information for questions, comments, and
bug reports.

Thanks,
The Gcj Hackers
