The FreeBSD Foundation is pleased to announce the availability of the
official Java Runtime Environment (JRE) and Java Development Kit
(JDK) for FreeBSD. The Foundation negotiated a license with Sun
Microsystems to distribute these FreeBSD binaries. The binaries
are based on JDK 1.5 and work with the official FreeBSD 5.4 and
FreeBSD 6.0 releases on the i386 platform.
