Indeed yes, Azul Systems develops mips32 port based on Loongson mips64 code. Naturally our supported java version is also 8u. And yes, we’d like to as well contribute our code along with mips64 code from Loongson. Of more precisely, on top, since we have chosen the #ifdef way. So that requires Loongson to be the first to put the code into the repos
