The Java taming decisions are specific to a single
version of Java, and upgrading the Java libraries could
create significant vulnerabilities if those decisions

recommend that Combex warn users that E should only be
used on the intended version of Java and take steps to
defend against this risk if Combex should ever decide
to upgrade to a later version of Java.

considered to be compatible with >= a given version
of Java. 2002-Mar-18 21:23 markm
