    60   '''IMPORTANT UPDATE'''. Odin32 runtime version 0.6.21659 that was originally required for this GA release of OpenJDK contains a bug that causes frequent crashes in DOSCALL1 when running many Java applications. Please update Odin to version '''0.6.21668''' (the link is in the table below) to fix this issue. See ticket:129 for more info.

    65 Note that there is no "mpusafe" archives any more since Java should now work fine on SMP computers. If you still need "mpusafe" behavior for some reason, you may manually mark all {{{*.exe}}} files in the ZIP archives using either the {{{execmode}}} tool (coming with eComStation) or the {{{markexe}}} utility (which you can find e.g. in the OS/2 Toolkit).
