This is a pretty good news and a solid improvement over OpenJDK.
"The IcedTea project added a PowerPC Java port (both 32 and 64 bit) of
OpenJDK. IcedTea 1.5 now also tracks the mercurial repo, provides better
GNU/Linux integration by using standard system libraries (libpng,
libjpeg, zlib, giflib) and can be bootstrapped with the free
gcj/ecj/classpath toolchain. OpenJDK just accepted a new porters group
and Gary Benson wrote a guide to porting IcedTea that might be the start
of a lot of other Java ports."
