Hi,

i miss the bugfix for bug 6887492:
http://bugs.sun.com/view_bug.do?bug_id=6887492

It is fixed (against the non-available) version 6u18-rev(b09) but not in 6u20?

Thanks
ToM

Hi,

so now i am officially confused :-/

1. 6u20 turned into 6u21 -> ok
2. But now the bugfixes (from 6u18-rev(b09)) which were supposed to be migrated into 6u21 have not been migrated?? (Specifically talking about 6887492 which does not appear in the release notes: http://java.sun.com/javase/6/webnotes/BugFixes6u21.html)

Why is that?

Will u20 also have escape analysis turned back on? I notice that both this and compressed oops will be set to true by default as of this update according to b01 bug fixes.

p.s. why skip u19?

Yes, it is 'missing', as the fixes from 6u18-rev(b09) have not yet been integrated into 6u20. They are coming soon. You can add a 'watch' onto that bug on bugs.sun.com to be updated once the integration has happened.

Thanks for the info.

I know that probably you don't know however i am still asking ;-)

Is there a general timeframe for the release of 6u19 and 6u20? Just a general idea (e.g. which month/quarter etc) would be cool :-)

Thanks
ToM
