This is fairly trivial except RVM-443, that hasn't been taken on by Classpath yet, fails to cleanly apply its associated patch in 2 places.
GNU Classpath 0.98 causes performance regression in luindex
Replace calls to StringBuffer with CPStringBuilder where appropriate
Fixed this quickly to avoid problem of work being done on old Classpath version. Patch in r15409.
bulk defer to 3.1.4
I've attached a zip file with a patch to upgrade to Classpath 0.99. Testing would be appreciated, especially on non-Linux systems.
What's the deadline for the next release? I'd like to get a Classpath 0.99.1 out soon, as there are quite a few fixes waiting. I'm not sure how that would fit with your plans.
We haven't set a deadline yet.
Codehaus.org will be shutting down mid-May 2015 ( see https://codehaus.org/ ) and we will have to migrate the issue tracker and the website. This will probably influence the timing of our next release in one way or another.
We might be able to wait for GNU Classpath 0.99.1 if it's close enough (i.e. weeks as opposed to months).
The main branch has been switched to Classpath 0.99 (+ backported build system patches fromClasspath git) and nobody has complained yet so I'm marking this issue as resolved. Please reopen if issues arise.
