You may have noticed that I've linked to Gentoo ebuilds in the online
versions of the most recent release announcements. I'm aware of these
because I maintain them and can update them at the same time as the
release announcement.

I've also recently developed RPM builds for IcedTea. Links to these
will be included in the current release announcements and future ones.
They have been tested on Fedora but the aim is to be applicable to as
many RPM-based distributions as possible. The spec files are
maintained on github:


I don't want to be seen to be preferencing certain distributions. If
you package IcedTea for a particular distribution, please let me know
and I'll be happy to mention those packages as well. They do need to
be using the appropriate IcedTea release and keep local patches to
a minimum.

Andrew :)
