Subject Re: BSF 3.0 progress update

Hi Sebb:

great work of yours! I truly think that you (and ant who thankfully has
started this round of updating BSF 3.0) have been doing a *very*
remarkable and highly appreciated job, checking thoroughfully the
release candidates, reviewing detailfully the file contents, overhauling
the classes and adding the sorely needed tests!

In addition, so far BSF 3.0 has been dubbed to be "beta", indicating
that there may be bugs in it.

Maybe we should advertise this to the Java related ASF projects, if they
can see a benefit in supporting scripts?

Definitely, so please keep us posted about your achievements!

Kudos to you (and also to ant)!
