The IcedTea project provides a harness to build the source code from
OpenJDK using Free Software build tools, along with additional
features such as a PulseAudio sound driver, the ability to build
against system libraries and support for alternative virtual machines
and architectures beyond those supported by OpenJDK.

This release updates our OpenJDK 6 support in the 1.13.x series with
the January 2016 security fixes.

If you find an issue with the release, please report it to our bug
database (http://icedtea.classpath.org/bugzilla) under the appropriate
component. Development discussion takes place on the
distro-pkg-dev at openjdk.java.net mailing list and patches are
always welcome.

Full details of the release can be found below.
