Subject Re: New IBM VME
Date Tue, 04 Apr 2006 17:14:47 GMT
Oliver,
    pleased to hear good news from you!!  I believe this is great for the 
project.
I have one question regarding the version of the VME, is it 1.5?   I'm 
asking this
because we have received contributions of some packages (for example: 
java.math
and java.rmi packages) which are 1.5 (compliant and dependant) but cannot be
used with current VM.

Thanks,

Daniel
