See the subject :-D

Not a bad idea but I don't think it could be interresting. I prefer the
idea we meet all together at some freesoftware meetings

Of course! ;) And I suppose everyone will try to be there! ;)


Tom Tromey has worked on many free software projects over the years. He
wrote GNU Automake, and these days is the libgcj maintainer.  He is an
engineer for Red Hat and lives in Boulder, Colorado.

GCJ is a free Java front end for EGCS. It can natively compile both Java
source and bytecode files. This new front end is integrated into the
EGCS project. The goal of the gcj project is to provide a complete free
software Java system, centered around an ahead-of-time compiler.

This talk will explain gcj's "radically traditional" view of the Java
programming language, and will cover the difficulties inherent in Java

Also, maybe we can set a little JB party for the 0.07 release :-D
