AFAIK, Mattew, you are probably the only person in the world (if any) that understand the overall Freenet software architecture. Can you try to explain me why a software that run smootly in the stable version (552) on Kaffe 1.0.7, so desperately need other java features in the developement branch ? It is really impossible to find a trade off between new developement and the existing features of Kaffe ? What new vital feature need it ? I need just one good reason to change my mind.
