Java Service Wrapper Version 3.1.1

Tanuki Software is pound to announce the release of version 3.1.1 of the
Java Service Wrapper.

This version includes a number of important bug fixes. We recommend that
all 3.1.0 users upgrade at their earliest convenience.

3.1.0 introduced a new tick based timer which was designed to be much
more reliable under heavy loads and work correctly across system time
changes. Several bugs have been fixed with the tick timer for the 3.1.1
release and it has undergone much more testing. While it has not yet
been set to be active by default, we do feel that is stable enough to
recommend its use by most users. It can be enabled by disabling the
use of system time with the following property:
