The CACAO virtual machine celebrates its 10th anniversary. On February
14th 1997 CACAO 0.1 using the class library of the JDK 1.0.2 for the
Alpha processor under Digital Unix was put online on the web. Now CACAO
supports Alpha, ARM, MIPS, PowerPC, Sparc, x86 and x86-64 processor
under different operating systems. Major milestones were the new JIT
compiler in the year 1998, the move to GNU Classpath library in 2003 and
the release of most parts of CACAO under the GPL in 2004.

We don’t have a 10th-anniversary-release, but we can announce some other
news: our previously closed-source JIT compiler ports for the Arm and
MIPS (o32) architecture have been released also under the GPL.
Furthermore, it is now possible to use Sun’s phoneme CLDC-1.1 classes
with CACAO out-of-the-box.

Happy birthday to us! And lets see what the next 10 years will bring…

Your CACAO Team

Woot! Happy birthday Cacao! Looks like you gave a great opening punch for the GNU Classpath Runtime Rumble taking place next weekend at Fosdem!
