Release policy: The product receives ongoing support, feature enhancements and bugfixes are included from time to time. Every 12 months I produce a release though I will most probably never do a 1.0 release. I will support new JDKs and platforms (server operating systems only, no XP, no Win98 ). If you report bugs or show stoppers for your project I will generally try to fix them as soon as possible (usually on the next weekend).

Platforms: 32bit and 64bit JDKs are supported. 32bit has been tested under Windows NT 4, Windows 2000, Windows 2003 and Windows XP. 64bit has been tested under Windows 7, Windows 2008, Vista, Server 2012 and Windows 10. The JVM type parameters (-classic -hotspot -client -server ) which allow for a VM selection on command line is supported.

JVM: Supported JAVA versions are Oracle JDK/JRE 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 1.5, 1.6,1.7,1.8, 1.9 and compatible JDKs.
All varieties of the virtual maschine should work (classic, JIT, hotspot, server). I will support future versions of the JDK as soon as they are released. If you would like other JVMs supported please send me a note with a link where I can get the JDK.
