The debian gvSIG packager (a project colleague) has set up the package
to use openjdk OR sun-java6-bin so if the sun jvm is installed it
won't install anything more. There are previus java stuff at main
script so I suppose (but should be confirmed on first builds) that
after install_gvsig.sh any openjdk will be installed at all.

Well as far as I've just upgraded from 1.10RC1 to 1.10 I haven't
changed anything at overview, I've just translated it into Spanish and
I've also reviewed the master documents (contact, index, download) to
reflect minor updates at English version. No time to create a
quickstart yet :-(

I've updated the spreadsheet but I haven't changed the SVN numbers,
I'm afraid I've been a little bit disconnected from the translation
project and that spreadsheet is a little bit scaring for me :-) I hope
Javi will help me on the procedure

Finally I haven't had time to update the sample project to use natural
earth, I will need some time to expose as much gvSIG styling and
labelling features as I can on that data (also to connect to postgis
and configured OGC services). I'm thinking on requesting help from any
gvSIG power user from our community to do that.
