Subject Re: New FieldSortedHitQueue uses Java 1.4 feature
Date Wed, 03 Mar 2004 18:40:11 GMT
-1 on the move to 1.4 just now.  I have a major application that has yet to
be tested for 1.4 compliance (lots of pre1.4 libraries).  More importantly,
I use a hosting service that doesn't offer 1.4 just yet.

Regards,

Terry
