At FOSDEM this year there was a nice talk about the status of Swing in
GNU Classpath.  The core message was, a year ago (Nov 2004 to be
exact), Classpath's Swing implementation was essentially useless.
Classes existed but even basic functionality didn't work; according to
the talk we had about 74% of the methods in place -- but about a
quarter of those were just stubs.

The situation is completely different today.  Most of the Swing
patches I see are either for the text widgets (which are the last
incomplete piece) or bug fixes to make applications work.

So, please be a little patient.  We've put a lot of effort into the
basics, and these are pretty solid now.  We are very near having the
needed critical mass, where suddenly many more applications will work.
