The platformindependent OpenJDK Icedtea6 Shark JIT have been updated to
support LLVM 2.7.
Here are the icedtea externalproj doc_section for inclusion in the
release notes :


*<div class=**"doc_subsection"**>*
*<a name=**"icedtea"**>*IcedTea Java Virtual Machine Implementation*</a>*

*<div class=**"doc_text"**>*
*<a href=**"http://icedtea.classpath.org/wiki/Main_Page"**>*IcedTea*</a>* provides a
harness to build OpenJDK using only free software build tools and to provide
replacements for the not-yet free parts of OpenJDK.  One of the extensions that
IcedTea provides is a new JIT compiler named *<a
href=**"http://icedtea.classpath.org/wiki/ZeroSharkFaq"**>*Shark*</a>* which uses LLVM
to provide native code generation without introducing processor-dependent

*<p>*Icedtea6 1.8 and later have been tested and are known to work with
LLVM 2.7 (and continue to work with older LLVM releases >= 2.6 as well).
