CACAO 0.99.2 released.

This is a bug-fix release.  Here is a short list of the most important
changes:

  * Rewrite of atomic instructions code. This fixes problems with
    AWT/Swing programs with OpenJDK.
  * Fixed PR83, PR89.

CACAO uses GNU Classpath as default Java runtime library and supports
upstream releases or CVS snapshots.  This release requires GNU
Classpath 0.96 or higher to build and was tested against GNU Classpath
0.97.2 on a number of various platforms.

CACAO's ./configure has some options for Java runtime configuration,
namely:

  --with-java-runtime-library=<type>
  --with-java-runtime-library-prefix=<dir>
  --with-java-runtime-library-classes=<path>
  --with-java-runtime-library-libdir=<dir>

For detailed information, use ./configure --help.

Currently supported JIT compiler architectures are:

  * alpha
  * arm
  * i386
  * m68k (broken)
  * mips
  * powerpc
  * powerpc64
  * s390
  * sparc64
  * x86_64
