Well, it's not that I don't want to contribute, but I haven't understood the whole problem myself.

I thought (but I guess I was wrong) that Java insures an ascendent compatibility. Program using java 1.3 , 1.4. should work on java 1.5 or 1.6 without recompiling.

Also, I think when 0.8 would be released, I don't think people would recompile it themselves :-)

Anyway, I started with forrest and I find it quite easy to use. But ONE feature is missing :D Do you think (for forrest 0.9 or 1.5...) it would be possible to have a syntax highlight for the code? Maybe I can help on this (if it's not a pain in the neck;-) )

Thanks for actually trying the things we suggest and giving full
feedback  on the results. It makes the job of solving these problems
much easier, and helps us make the debug steps shorter in the future.

Of course, we'd appreciate a FAQ entry for windows users describing the
problem you had and how to solve it (windows forcing JDK1.6 to be used
despite having set JAVA_HOME to a different version). That way we won't
have to spend time on it in the future and you can have the warm glow of
"heh, I contributed something of value to Forrest".

Of course, we can write the FAQ ourselves, but we are in the middle of
testing a release so we may well forget.
