It's probably far less than you're hoping (it was backported in October, 
the change in trunk was in May)... the Java COM binding was quite badly 
broken before, to the point that it couldn't run code which used to 
work. Part of it was bit rot (totally normal when code isn't 
built/shipped due to severe usability restrictions), but the real 
breakage was some change to the COM binding code which was meant to be 
only for the webservice variant.

For the gory details: https://www.virtualbox.org/changeset/51416/vbox

The full functionality still needs significant changes (mostly type 
conversions between signed/unsigned data types which JACOB doesn't do 
automatically, it needs to be told explicitly).
