Just read the above link, thanks. It appears, though, that there are still some pieces that are encumbered.

From reading the above link, though, it also appears that these pieces are of minimal effect and would not significantly restrict us from using Sun Java as Free Software. Sun says here that it is working on either replacing those still-encumbered pieces with new implementations or getting those remaining encumbered pieces freed.

This is indeed good news.
