The beunited Java porting team has now Java 1.4 working on R5. The famous Hello World was the first program to run.

"The VM is using native BeOS threads, and accesses the native OS functions for all its work making it very fast. The next steps are to work on fleshing our the rest of the OS native code, working on the AWT to Interface Kit link, and building a BeOS look and feel for Swing."

Cool, very cool indeed. Great job guys!
