I don't think we are completely ready yet.
Mainly my fault since I got a bit distracted with getting those
JFreeChart Demos to work. Which now do work partly on the gcj gui
branch, but not yet in GNU Classpath CVS.
See for some - imho exciting - screenshots.
I am not going spend more time on it though since it also seems to
depend on the CVS version of Cairo to work correctly.

This is now done. I am not going to sync the recent AWT gtk+ peer
cleanup Thomas did since he said himself that it could be unstable.

Examples for the JColorChooser, JComboBox and JTextField have been

Still pending, sorry jrandom. I was secretly hoping Bryce would have
more comments on this.

with gjdoc yet?

I started with some patches, but there are just too many.
It builds with jikes and gcj 3.4 so I am not too worried, it is just

Still pending. Sorry Ka-Hing. I was secretly hoping Graydon would have a
look. And I am afraid the gui merge changed the Timer code once again.

Still pending. Sorry Chris.

Removed and tested that just adding the latest GNU JAXP works as
expected. Some simple tests seem to indicate that it works nicely.

Testing against jamvm seems to indicate that most things work OK,
running the new Demo examples, Eclipse 2.1 (Eclipse 3.0 doesn't startup
though with just GNU JAXP installed, probably needs Xalan or some such),
ant building of inetlib, mauve, JFreeChart (but without text and only
with cairo CVS), etc.

Lets give it a few more days to get the last things fixed/committed and
release on Wednesday or Thursday.
