you have to manually recompile the class library in
the old build system, which is used in 1.0.7. make
Klasses will recompile Klasses.jar. You can find more
information in FAQ/FAQ.classlibrary-compile.

I don't remember if you have to manually recompile
class libraries after changes with the new build
system, used in the latest sources from cvs HEAD. I
haven't touched the code in the last month ;)

sounds like a good idea to me, if it is not already
implemented in the latest version. Please check out
kaffe from cvs and if it doesn't behave as you
propose, please send us a patch.
