My standard practice, at least at this early stage of development, is to
try to track SVN head as far as possible.  When you get close to
release, sure, freeze versions.  It's a process choice, and up to you.

I realise there might be issues with you accessing svn head directly - 
I'm happy to cut you a new jar file whenever you like.  The current 
version is at http://cs.anu.edu.au/people/Robin.Garner/mmtk-20061012.jar

AFAIK, Steve's private release to you was an *advance* release, that SVN
trunk has now overtaken (he didn't want to commit it until after the
JikesRVM 2.4.5 release).

More in another reply.

On ia62/x64 systems, prefetch and prefetchNTA should be synonymous.
