Subject Re: [doc][drlvm] The document "Getting started with DRL" is outdated
Date Wed, 08 Nov 2006 15:02:59 GMT
It's not a hard to write a documenation once, it's hard to support it :)
More problems:
1) -Xem options are obsolete.
2) -Xjit options are also obsolete.
3) Do we really need this page today? AFAIU users expect Harmony VM is able
to run the same apps as RI..
?
