Subject Re: New IBM VME
Date Wed, 05 Apr 2006 11:34:29 GMT
Cool - I assume you can make the new version available before we make 
changes to the classlib?  IOW, make both available and known to the 
project (so developers on the project can work on the changes) and then 
when we get our stuff done, we'll point users to the new version?
