Subject Re: [drlvm][build] Where to put mmtk.jar?
Date Mon, 30 Oct 2006 19:08:38 GMT
All,
I received a private email from Steve Blackburn regarding mmtk.jar.  There
is a new forum for discussing vmmagic at:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/vmmagic.  It seems that vmmagic API won't be
changed impulsively as there are several projects dependent on the current
interface.
