I have been distracted from completing the 2.4.0 JogAmp release last two
weeks, but at least it is for a good reason.
Our most valuable client CCT International ordered a JogAmp port running on
Apple’s iOS devices, namely iPad Pro using an arm64.
Right now I still finalize the NativeWindow, Jogl and Newt specialization for iOS.
Subsequently I will add JavaFX to the proof of concept (POC).
If all goes as planned, I will demonstrate a working demo soon.
Here is a little teaser of the past work, my first GlueGen bring-up on iOS arm64.
The work includes a statically linked OpenJDK 9 hotspot-zero build,
which we may disclose at a later time. Naturally we aim for hotspot arm64 as
the final goal.
For now the required GlueGen changes are published pro-forma,
as well as some ant-cpptask enhancements to allow using xcrun clang to create
the static libraries instead of ar.
Since you still have to wait a few more days for the demo video, here is the
informal GlueGen stdout VersionInfo:

Good job. I admit that I'm not personally interested in targetting this platform but it will be an excellent selling point for JogAmp as our main competitor has no plan to implement this kind of feature anytime soon as far as I know. I'm impatient to see your source code, especially the necessary changes in NEWT.
