We are very pleased to announce the second major release of the DaCapo  
benchmark suite, available for download now.


This release represents a major overhaul of the suite, with  
significant change to the constituent benchmarks and to the benchmark  
harness and source code.

The 9.12 suite comprises 14 benchmarks; six of these are entirely new,  
one (h2) replaces hsqldb, and the remaining seven are significantly  
updated versions of benchmarks from our previous release, with updated  
inputs.   The suite now includes application server workloads (tomcat,  
tradebeans, and tradesoap).  Nine of the benchmarks are multi- 
threaded.   We have retained four single-threaded benchmarks to  
reflect the continuing importance of single threaded workloads.

Release notes are available here:


This release of the suite was developed primarily by Steve Blackburn,  
Daniel Frampton, Robin Garner, and John Zigman of the ANU, with the  
assistance of many contributors.

We are extremely grateful for the generous financial support of Intel,  
which helped make this release possible.

We hope you enjoy using the suite.

Best wishes,

	Steve Blackburn, ANU
	Kathryn McKinley, UT Austin
