JamVM 2.0.0 Released

I'm pleased to announce a new release of JamVM.  JamVM 2.0.0 is the first release of JamVM with support for OpenJDK (in addition to GNU Classpath). Although IcedTea already includes JamVM with OpenJDK support, this has been based on periodic snapshots of the development tree.

JamVM 2.0.0 supports OpenJDK 6, 7 and 8 (the latest). With OpenJDK 7 and 8 this includes full support for JSR 292 (invokedynamic). JamVM 2.0.0 with OpenJDK 8 also includes full support for Lambda expressions (JSR 335), type annotations (JSR 308) and method parameter reflection.

In addition to OpenJDK support, JamVM 2.0.0 also includes many bug-fixes, performance improvements and improved compatibility (from running the OpenJDK jtreg tests).

The full release notes can be found here (changes are categorised into those affecting OpenJDK, GNU Classpath and both), and the release package can be downloaded from the file area.
