We have released version 0.7.1 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 new DefaultQualifier(s) annotations, IGJ support  
for flow-sensitive type refinement, many documentation improvements, a  
new manual section about javac implementation, and some bug fixes.   
The changelogs appears below.
