After some initial teething problems with the web page (that a few of you noticed), we can now announce that the first fix level of the IBM 1.1.8 JDK for Linux is available for download. The download location can be reached from the Linux Zone at the IBM DeveloperWorks site. The fixes list available with this release shows all the fixes that went in for defects that were raised against the IBM Linux 1.1.8 JDK. In other words, defects that were initially raised against other IBM JDKs and were common to the Linux JDK do not appear in the fixes list even though the fix is in the code. In future releases of the IBM 1.1.8 Linux JDK all fixes will be listed in the fixes list.

Please remember to read the README. This contains important information about how to raise problems, a link to a web page that describes how to set up your Linux kernel so that 1000s of threads can run, details on limitations and other useful information.

This first fix level is l118-19991221. Please upgrade to this level before reporting any problems.
