I was referring to trunk which would be our 1.2 impl which requires a JSP 2.1 container and
JDK1.5. Of course, it stills need to support 1.1 and 1.0 tags but would be able use features
from the newer runtime environment to do so. This is related to the other proposal for switching
to the EL implementation provided by 2.1 (javax.el) rather than continuing to package our

Users needing to run in JSP2.0 and JDK1.3 or 1.4 environments could continue to use the 1.1.x
branches with bugfixes backported as needed.
