I´ve seen that openjdk b23 was released on the 5th July.
Well, I am using here several programs which are original develop for the sun/oracle jdk.
Some of them are very exotic, which a small user base, so the adaption to openjdk is not performed well(and need for that is there).
I´ve filed that to the targeted projects, but it seems also necessary to come as far as possible to the newest piece of java, because the past has shown that the stability of such programs increase rapidly which every new version of openjdk.

So it would be fine to see there are b23 in the factory repository and also it would be fine when openSUSE taking the regular look for such updates.

Thank you and greetings

We don't use openjdk, but the icedtea patchset [1] and openjdk. Thus we have to wait on the next release of icedtea supporting the last openjdk version. As far I can see in Makefile.am in Mercurial icedtea6 branch [2], the b23 has been added in March, so it's most likely the icedtea6-1.11 will be released soon.

In openSUSE we obviously update to the last available openjdk in all releases including Evergreen, so you will get it in any case. If not, packages will be available in Java:openjdk6:Factory - I will keep you informed through this bug.
