there is a complete julius in simon svn, aplus a julius patch.
Are there any plans to put the patch upstream an use official julius releases again?
The patch is actually no longer up to date.
The main issue with using upstream julius would be that the original julius only links / installs static libraries instead of dynamic ones: http://julius.sourceforge.jp/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=109
You can't link from dynamic libraries to static ones...
