It is likely that varargs will come in a minor update sooner than the
rest of the Java 5 syntax. It should be fairly easy to implement them
code to support them is in place. Varargs on Java methods will likely
only apply to Java code compiled with Java 5, as that introduces the new
flag that specifies that a method accetps varargs. It would probably be
dangerous to change the parsing rules for code that was compiled prior
to Java 5. But we will support them for scripted methods more
The Iterable can also be easily added and take effect when the engine is
running on a Java 5 platform that has the Iterable class.

And here's a postscript from another avatar of Pat's Conscience:
* When is BeanShell development going to move over to using the public
repository for all changes (i.e. so that CVS always contains current
sources, instead of having to periodically post snapshots)?
PS Thanks for the fixes in the new release!

We are in the process of moving to subversion and a new open source
friendly hosting location. I'll have more details about that in a few
At that point we'll be working from the public repository again.
