Speaking as just a user (so feel free to ignore me), it seems to me that 
that dropping JDK 1.3 (and/or servlet 2.2) support would warrant rolling the 
version number to 2.2.x; continue to support it on the 2.1.x branch, even if 
that means 2.1.9 is the last release in that series.

Seeing as only this afternoon I had to make Fins build under 1.3 (due to the 
Websphere version we have to deploy to in our US datacentre), I'm a fan of 
1.3 compatibility :-)
Which reminds me, can anyone suggest a library to read (awt) images from an 
inputsource, since javax.imageio (which Fins uses to set background images 
on charts) is 1.4+?
