At it, again

After my last JAmiga-hiatus, I am now trying to remember what I previously did, and what and I should do next. Looking at my own local classpath files, I am kind of confused over what I have done, which files have change, and what I haven't done. Meanwhile, the GNU Classpath has been released in version 0.99, which is somewhat a surprise to me, since I thought it was more or less abandoned in favour of OpenJDK. Anyhow, my two options for my continued effort to get JAmiga more amture is to either clean up the mess I have with the GNU Classpath, or do some testing with OpenJDK. I am really tempted to take a look at OpenJDK 8, since it really seems to be the most wise thing to do. Either way, I have already begun the work in creating a JVM-interface which should work with both GNU Classpath and OpenJDK. So at worst, I will get some knowledge in OpenJDK but resort to continuing with the GNU Classpath on JAmiga.

Currently, my Mac is at hard work installing Ubuntu, on to which I will do my OpenJDK explorations. And this time I will document every single thing I do.
