LWN article on Oldenburg DevJam published my article about the GNU Classpath distro DevJam – Europe.Subscribe to LWN to read it now, or wait till next week when it is available for non-subscribers.

Cool screenshot of the day (JButtons by David Gilbert)

Yesterday I wrote: Hint: Adding more cool demos to GNU Classpath Examples will earn you instant fame (and lots of screenshot exposure). Plus it helps people starting out with Free Swing or other parts of the GNU Classpath library to see what and how things are possible (non-gui demos are also really appreciated). And today […]
