Jikes RVM 2.4.1 released

Jikes RVM version 2.4.1 is now available for download from sourceforge.net at
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/jikesrvm/jikesrvm-2.4.1.tar.gz?download

The main change in this release is support for classpath 0.18, although there are also some opt compiler bug fixes and enhancements.

The Release Notes are appended below.

Highlights
*The recommended version of GNU classpath for Jikes RVM 2.4.1 is 0.18.
Classpath 0.17 is expected to still work, Classpath 0.15 may still
work, but has not been tested.

** Support for triggering recompilation of dynamically loaded methods
It is now possible for an application running on Jikes RVM to request
that the system recompile all dynamically loaded methods at any point
in the application. This can be accomplished by a new VM_Callbacks
method. Details are in the user's guide.
