I'll cite from the ChangeLog.

* config/alpha/netbsd1/jit-md.h, config/alpha/netbsd1/md.c, 
config/alpha/linux/jit-md.h, config/alpha/linux/md.c: Use new stack 
inspection function. Enable JIT compilation.

I don't know. Could someone verify if it has been solved?

I don't see any config/powerpc/jit.* files. I assume it remains to be done. I 
don't think that should delay 1.0.7.

I assume that is the kaffe open vm custom edition from pocketlinux. Some 
patches have apprently been merged. Volunteers welcome :)

I'm currently after this. Right now I'm going over what Tim Stack has put up 
on the web from the latest JanosVM release (the java class libraries part).

I haven't found anything in the ChangeLog about it. Could anyone provide more
