The JDK compiles with the classic VM and green threads.  However, java
is crashing and burning on any Swing type app and appletviewer is acting
similarly.  It might be something in the X code, but javadoc exhibits
the same behaviour if I try and build the release images (and I noticed
it doesn't reference libawt on the core dump in gdb).  By the same
token, javac, javah and jar perform without any problems during the
build process, so much of the code is probably correct.

I guess you'd call that pre-alpha :).  I would like to release a patchset
if people are interested, but its definitely developer only.  I could
do with the help :).  If this is the way we go, something will probably 
come out on the weekend.

We're also reasonably close to getting some sort of native threads
support I think, thanks mainly to some contributions from Bill Huey.
