As an update release to 0.8.6, JDIC 0.8.6.1 is released. For now, only the binary for Linux is provided:

This release fixes two critical, known problems:
- The Browser component(API) only works with mozilla 1.4. Refer to issue#87 for details:
https://jdic.dev.java.net/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=87

Now it works with mozilla 1.4 through 1.8a4 using either gtk1.2 or gtk2.

- Building the JDIC (in specific, Browser component) source requires building a Mozilla source first. Refer to issue#119:
https://jdic.dev.java.net/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=119

Now it builds against Gecko SDK and a Mozilla binary, both are downloadable from mozilla.org.

The same fix applies to Solaris as well. But for Windows, the code base is different, we'll need to find a similar fix.

Darin Fisher (darin) helped hacking the code to make the fix. Thanks a lot to Darin.
