I've made the 1.1.8 release of Kaffe available for download at:


Kaffe is distributed in source code form only.  You can find the
source in the .tar.gz, .tar.bz and .zip files.

Kaffe is a clean room implementation of the Java virtual machine, plus
the associated class libraries needed to provide a Java runtime
environment. The Kaffe virtual machine is free software, licensed under
the terms of the GNU General Public License.

Much thanks goes to Dalibor Topic for running the project and putting
this release together!

This release of Kaffe is a "development" release.  It has been tested,
but not as thoroughly as a production release would be.

Check the website at http://kaffe.org/ for information on the mailing
list, irc channel, bug tracker, etc.
