java-package 0.26 uploaded

The latest version of java-package has been uploaded this evening. In addition to support for the latest security-updated Sun and Blackdown 1.4.2 JREs and JDKs, we have added a couple of features from the wishlist department:

  • The username and email inputs for make-jpkg are no longer required; they default to Debian Java Maintainers and the project’s email address.
  • Support for packaging Sun’s API Javadoc for 1.3, 1.4, and 1.5 JDKs (woohoo!), integrated with the Debian Documentation Menu for easy access.

Hope you like it. Just think, one day when the free runtimes for Java(TM) take over this will be packaging with a level of kitsch akin to vintage clothing. 8^)
