Swing is the standard component architecture for developing Java desktop
applications. Its exhaustive collection of widgets is the foundation for
easy development of rich graphical user interfaces (GUI).
Alas every non trivial GUI sooner or later encounters the problem of
"freeze". This annoying behaviour is experienced by users every time the
application performs extensive calculations or blocks for network or disk
Spin offers a revolutionary new approach. It offers transparent thread
handling with minimal impact on your application code.

did the same; thanks to Bastien ROUCARIES for the bug report
(closes: #538899).

2007-12-16 - gregor herrmann <>
libspin-java (1.5-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release:
- doesn't use ant anymore but maven; using a workaround with
maven-ant-helper and our own build.xml
- doesn't need the patch against build.xml anymore; therefore removing
ths patch and the dpatch framework
- depends on libcglib2.1-java; adding the package to Build-Depends-Indep
and moving libspin-java to contrib because of the dependency
- the jar now has the version number in the filename; adding a symlink
* Fix debian/watch.
* Clean up debian/rules.
* Move upstream URL from the description to the new Homepage field.
* Change XS-Vcs-* fields to Vcs-*.
* Set Standards-Version to 3.7.3 (no further changes required).
* Add get-orig-source target in debian/rules.
