OpenJDK roundup


In OpenJDK 6, Andrew Hughes finished backporting the Nimbus Swing Look & Feel. Kelly O'Hair meanwhile went ahead and restructured the jaxp & jaxws repositories to follow a new component delivery model.

Milestone 5 in OpenJDK 7 has been extended in late October to cover build 76 to allow the JSR 166y integration to happen. Martin Buchholz pushed that code in earlier this week, while Joe Darcy did the same for his implementation of the Strings in Switch language change from Project Coin. Joe delivered a detailed analysis of the work to implement and test the new language feature on his blog.

Finally, Mario Torre celebrated his first push to the 2D repository. Roman Kennke had a different, wonderful reason to celebrate, as well.
