New Mint Release: r15665

I just created a new release of Mint and DrJava with Mint: July 28, 2010 (r15665). It's been over a year since we made the first version of Mint available! The latest release is, as always, available from the Mint implementation page:
Nothing really changed in the Mint language or in the way Mint is implemented; however, we moved our modified javac compiler into subpackages of the edu.rice.cs.mint.comp package, which means that the compiler is now invoked using the edu.rice.cs.mint.comp.com.sun.tools.javac.Main class.

The package and class names got a bit long, but by not using the same class names as Sun/Oracle, we can use our compiler together with other compilers or the original compiler if we want to, and there won't be any class name clashes.

New Mint Release: r15637

I just created a new release of Mint and DrJava with Mint: July 22, 2010 (r15637). It's been over a year since we made the first version of Mint available! The latest release is, as always, available from the Mint implementation page:

The DrJava team released a third beta version of DrJava almost two weeks ago, drjava-beta-20100711-r5314.

The only thing that changed on the Mint language side is the implementation of the toString() method for brackets.

There have a been plenty of new features and bugfixes for DrJava, and they have been integrated into DrJava with Mint. In fact, DrJava with Mint includes a few bugfixes that are not yet in the latest beta of DrJava.
