Kaffe and AWT?

I just got and installed kaffe 0.10.0 (on FreeBSD 2.2.5-STABLE).

Does Kaffe support the new JDK 1.1 or not?

I checked the FAQ <URL:http://www.kaffe.org/faq.html> which says

  From version 0.9.x, Kaffe supports JDK 1.1.  Before this version,
  Kaffe supports JDK 1.0.2.

Without this reassurance, I probably would not have bothered.

However, trying to run a simple applet, it failed -- se below.

So I checked the mailing list archives, where some messages apparently
indicate that AWT is not supported, or perhaps not completely.  Is it
possible to claim support for JDK 1.1 without AWT support, I wonder?

Anyway, here is the result of running the applet.

Any suggestions welcome.

I should add that running non-graphical programs seems to work OK.
