Sun is announcing today the availability of a new license that
will fulfill our promise to the Free software world to make it
possible to test OpenJDK-based implementations for compatibility.
OpenJDK implementations that pass the Java SE 6 TCK will be eligible
for the license for the "Java Compatible" word mark and logo.

With this step, Free AND compatible implementations become possible.
We're hoping this will make it a lot easier for you to know if your
contributions break compatibility or not, and for Free software
implementations to thus become part of the Java platform's
"Write Once, Run Anywhere" promise.

You can review the text of the license [1] and read the
updated FAQ [2] about it.

Join us for a community chat to talk about the OpenJDK TCK license,
answer  your questions, and think about the implications and
next steps on the #openjdk channel [3] at
15:00 UTC (= 8:00 am PDT = 11:00 am EDT).
