Hi team,

I've tagged 1.1.9, and uploaded the source code archives to 
http://www.kaffe.org/~robilad. Jim, when you have time, please send out 
an official release announcement to announce@, I've got to get on the 
road to FOSDEM right away, to make it for the BrandWeg hacking session.

This release largely cleans up a lot of lose ends, and breaks with 
merging in code into Kaffe, in particular it has switched to using an 
existing installation of GNU Classpath on the system.

But there is still more stuff to clean up, to make Kaffe a lean, mean 
and tidy little VM, so if you are interested in making it a couple of 
lines of code smaller, please join us.

This Kaffe release should work better on arm linux and darwin in 
particular, then previous releases. I hope it works well for you too.

Onward to 1.1.10,
