Package Metadata


  • Bye bye Java 6! If you really still need it then gnu_andrew will continue to maintain icedtea:6 in java-overlay but it is not supported by Java team at all. IBM's JVM is still alive but downloads are behind a registration wall and Java team does not wish to support it. haubi may provide IBM updates though probably only for ppc-aix. Removal in 30 days.
