> Sorry, I haven't gotten Release Candidate 1 (RC1) out yet.  I just wanted to

>  3) Fix the libtool issue
>  4) Look at whether or not kjc should be updated
>  5) Incorporate rebuilding of the class libraries into the build procedure

> since the Klasses.jar,v file in the CVS repository is currently 107MB!,
> which explains why it's so slow to check stuff out.
> 6) Do the "Ports" and "Credits" pages on the website

So, uh, how is this stuff going?

> Hopefully, with a little help, I can get RC1 done this weekend.

No need to rush this, how about setting a date a little further out, like
july or the start of august.

> Cheers,
