Hi there,

    Matthias has just landed in the Precise repositories an updated

testing results using the packages published from the source at:

Installable packages are linked to from:

Reports of installation issues, and general results trying to run from
simple to complex applications would be appreciated.

Note there is no backport PPA for these packages at the moment. But it's
still time to give them a xmas spin and give me the great news that Java
on ARM is getting back on track -- thanks!
