I am Werner Randelshofer, the maintainer of the Quaqua Look and Feel
for Mac OS X.
My interest is to get a good compliance of Open JDK with the Apple
Human Interface Guidelines.
With Quaqua I currently have partial implementations of various
designs of the Aqua interface: Jaguar, Panther, Tiger and Leopard. The
most complete implementation being Tiger. Quaqua 'borrows' missing
interface elements from the AquaLookAndFeel by Apple and make use of
some other platform-specific features of Apple's Macintosh Runtime for
Currently, Quaqua runs on Mac OS 10.3 through 10.5 with Apple's MRJ
for 1.4, 1.5 and 1.6. (I just recently dropped support for Apple's MRJ
for Java 1.3, because Apple dropped this JVM on Mac OX 10.5.)
With the latest code changes that I made, Quaqua runs also with the
SoyLatte port of Java 6 for Mac OS X by Landon Fuller.
With best regards,
