Subject [VOTE:RESULTS] Dropping Java 1.3 support for Apache XML Graphics (lazy vote)
Date Mon, 29 Oct 2007 08:54:03 GMT
No objections were recorded for this decision. So, this becomes
effective now. Obviously, Batik is free to finish the release of version
1.7 with Java 1.3 support still in place (just so there are no
misunderstandings).
