When did it start?
Anyone know when GCJ began development?
GCJ and Swing
- I couldn't find even "mostly". I'll cut off that marketroidism to "work is ongoing". Said: Rursus (☻) 07:43, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
??? for MSIL
What is the name of native compiler for MSIL ? Bartok is for SingSharp (Singularity), not for C#
- Truly, this is so. It's hard to overstate just how disruptive (and not in a good way) the presence of gcj on default Linux installs has been. Far better to have no java to start with and install a working one than have a broken one preinstalled that one must scrape (like so many runny dog turds) off the system. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 20:51, 1 July 2011 (UTC)
What is with the quote about CNI? It reads like a testimonial, but isn't attributed. The reader wonders who is this "We" that uses CNI? Also, the introduction to CNI seems a bit abrupt. Maybe it could be smoothed out. SlowJog (talk) 14:50, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
Project in maintenance mode?
The article says that this project is in maintenance mode, however the reference does not seem to indicate that, so far as i can tell. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 16:26, 12 January 2010 (UTC)
- I think the article is some kind of vague or incomplete, because the page refered to have fewer updates lately. This GCC 4.3 Release Series description page instead tells us: gcj uses Eclipse Java compiler for parsing, making gcj accept Java 1.5 (AKA 5.0) constructions. Maybe the page refd to, reflects that the parsing was suddenly much more mature without the gcj maintainers wiggling their fingers too much. Rursus dixit. (mbork3!) 20:59, 16 February 2010 (UTC)
- Ah, I found a reference indicating that this "maintenance mode" stuff is an unfounded extrapolation, namely GCJ Status which was last modified Nov 2 2012. I think that the GCJ guys are not just announcement oriented. I'll surf around a little to see what last update really was. Rursus dixit. (mbork3!) 16:14, 3 February 2013 (UTC)
