JTUtilities 0.20b released

Release mainly spared by the needs of the JavaThis Map Editor 0.10b. Also provided different packages. If you use the scripts
you will need to have Ant 1.4.1 now.

Main Changes: I added a JTToolBar to replace the bug ridden JToolBar of JDK 1.4.0 with some enhancements as well. Also added aJTCommandButtonLayout and JTVerticalFlowLayout Layout Managers. Some Minor bug fixes in JTLabel. Modifications in the ResourceBundle and property file JavaThis standards.

JTUtilities 0.10b released

The first beta release of JTUtilities has been posted. The set of utilities will grow fast. Plans for several are in the works as I type. It still is lacking in the JavaDoc area, that will be improved over time. Please report any problems, make suggestions, and use the forums.
