"This week the IcedTea Project reached an important milestone - The 
latest OpenJDK binary included in Fedora 9 (x86 and x86_64) passes the 
rigorous Java Test Compatibility Kit (TCK). This means that it provides 
all the required Java APIs and behaves like any other Java SE 6 
implementation - in keeping with the portability goal of the Java 
platform. As of writing, Fedora 9 is the only operating system to 
include a free and open Java SE 6 implementation that has passed the 
Java TCK. All of the code that makes this possible has been made 
available to the IcedTea project so everyone can benefit from the work."
