Affirmative. I'm currently working on 1.1 compliance of the biss.awt.kernel,
and it is more difficult compared with the biss.awt package (which mainly
required the BissPeers exchange, an added PSGr method and a removed 0,0 -
position WINDOW_MOVED workaround).

Problem is to remain 1.0.2 compatible at the same time. It seems to require
more and more 'variants' of biss-awt classes (which I don't like). Moreover,
has anybody seen a 1.1 version of JAS already?
