New Mint Release: r15665

I just created a new release of Mint and DrJava with Mint: July 28, 2010 (r15665). It’s been over a year since we made the first version of Mint available! The latest release is, as always, available from the Mint implementation page:

Nothing really changed in the Mint language or in the way Mint is implemented; however, we moved our modified javac compiler into subpackages of the package, which means that the compiler is now invoked using the class.

The package and class names got a bit long, but by not using the same class names as Sun/Oracle, we can use our compiler together with other compilers or the original compiler if we want to, and there won’t be any class name clashes.
