We have released version 0.7.3 of the JSR 308 implementation and of  
the Checker Framework.  You can always download the latest version of  
these tools at: http://groups.csail.mit.edu/pag/jsr308/ .

The JSR 308 implementation is a backward-compatible extension to  
javac. The Checker Framework makes it easy to write a tool that finds  
or prevents errors; the tool is expressed as a type-checker for a  
pluggable type system.  The Checker Framework distribution includes  
sample checkers.

This release includes support for type annotations in classfiles (i.e.  
storing type annotations in and parsing them from classfiles), and  
some bug fixes.  The changelogs appears below.

Also, this release includes two Eclipse plug-ins: one for running the  
distributed checkers on Java Projects, and one for generating class  
skeleton files.  The plug-ins and their installation instructions are  
available at: http://groups.csail.mit.edu/pag/jsr308/eclipse/ .
