RTSJ 1.1 Alpha Program

The fifth Alpha release of RTSJ version 1.1 is available at the RI download site. This Alpha reference implementation adds some new features from the proposed 1.1 specification, and fixes bugs and problems that were found in Alpha 4.

The major changes between the fourth Alpha and the Fifth Alpha are that:

The fourth Alpha release of RTSJ version 1.1 is available at the RI download site. This Alpha reference implementation adds some new features from the proposed 1.1 specification, and fixes bugs and problems that were found in Alpha 3.

The major changes between the third Alpha and the fourth Alpha are that:

Several MP-related bugs were fixed for this Alpha release and the concurrent update to the 1.0.2 RI.

The third Alpha release of RTSJ version 1.1 is available at the RI download site. This Alpha reference implementation contains implementations of about half the proposed 1.1 features. (See the JSR-282 page on jcp.org.)

The major changes between the second Alpha and the third Alpha are that:

The goal of the Alpha program is to give "the community" a chance to try the features before they are incorporated in a final specification. It's possible, even likely, that this process will find 1.1 features that should be removed or fundamentally modified.

At this point work on the RI includes:

there should be several alpha releases as it gets more complete.

A warning. Don't depend on any 1.1 behavior until the spec is final.
