This release is intended to find any major bugs before releasing 2.2. If none
are found, this will become the 2.2 release. If you can run this and check for
bugs, it will be greatly appreciated. Bug reports can be created at
http://jython.org/bugs whereas more general questions can be sent to the
Jython-users mailing list, firstname.lastname@example.org.
