Blackdown.org: Port Status of Java Platform 2 SDK Version 1.3
June 3, 2000
"The Blackdown team has been licensed to have access to the Java2 v1.3.0 and the HotSpot source code. The differences to Sun's version will be very small as we are working on the same code base. The most noticeable difference is that we will continue to support non-ix86 platforms too."
"A first Blackdown build of J2SE v1.3.0 will be available in June.
