mod_gcj is still alive! After one year of waiting for GCJ to mature some more, new versions for both mod_gcj and rhinola are available. The changes are mostly smaller fixes and enhancements, as well as adaptations to changes in GCJ. Both packages have been tested on Ubuntu 6.10. Let me know whether or not they work on other platforms!
mod_gcj 0.8 is out and contains fixes for bugs that prevented it from building on Debian and Fedora Core. It also contains a fix for parsing HTTP POST parameters, implements pruning of unused classloaders, anc includes a few other minor nice new features.
mod_gcj 0.7 adds features like support for HTTP parameter parsing, character encodings, and advanced HTTP header processing including parsing and setting of cookies and date headers. In combination with GCJ 4.0, mod_gcj should now be ready for deployment of real-world web applications. Documentation has also been greatly enhanced since the 0.5 release, including guides for building, installing and configuring mod_gcj as well as writing and deploying mod_gcj handlers.
