I noticed the merge, a bit later... In facts, I still have to complain :p
The version of GNU Classpath that have been merged still have bugs in
serialization code (at least in java.io.ObjectInputStream, method
readClassDescriptor which uses the wrong resolveClass method at the
wrong time, and then do not make use of redefined methods in derived
classes). Such bugs are fixed in newer versions of Classpath. So I
wonder whether there is a *nice* way to benefits from fixes in Classpath
when using Kaffe.
