Steven Jardine has adapted the build system for JDK 5.0, but I have
committed his changes only to HEAD. Therefore there is no release of JayBird
1.5.5 for JDK 5.0. If there is reasonable public interest, I will port
changes to Branch_1_5 and release a version for JDK 5.0.

Bill Oliver has sent me a compiled binary of for 64-bit
Solaris. This file is relatively big (1.6 MB), therefore I didn't include it
into the release package. I will make it available for download on soon. Unfortunately, our build_native.xml does not work for
Solaris, and Bill sent me his own build script.

Also, if no critical bug is discovered, that is the last point release of
JayBird 1.5.x. Next version is 1.6 and will contain support of Services API
(backup/restore, user management, statistics, etc).
