Subject Re: BCEL future

I 'd be glad if there would some more activity in the future, since I 
still have ideas
to add yet not enough time to realize currently. There are important changes
however like 1.5 support that should be added asap.

I also have a problem with the Apache org, because my main contact
was Jason van Zyl jvanzyl@zenplex.com which I haven't been able
to contact for quite a while.

There have been requests e.g. for new volunteer developers which I couldn't

Anyway I think the current version of BCEL is pretty stable yet lacks some
new ideas. There are also some comparable projects on the net now with
some interesting new features.
