Avian 0.4 is a portable virtual machine (VM) that utilizes subsets of Java's features.

Avian supports i386, x86_64 (Linux, Windows, Mac OS X) and PowerPC (Mac OS X) and new with the 0.4 release is support for Linux on the ARM. Other new features include using the OpenJDK class library as an alternative to the Avian class library.
