It looks like ecj is going to replace the gcj java front-end compiler thereby 
making the 1.5 language features available to gcj. In the meantime, the 
classpath project is working towards adding support for all JRE classes. I'm 
quite optimistic that we should see a 1.5 capable gcj this year. This isn't 
saying much, however, about which platforms, besides Red Hat Linux, this gcj 
would be producing stable executables for. For example, gcj on Windows is very 
far behind and is getting very little development time these days.
