We have released midpoint version 0.8.9b of the JSR 308 implementation  
and of the Checker Framework.  You can always review the latest  
version of the specification at: http://groups.csail.mit.edu/pag/jsr308/specification/java-annotation-design.html
; and 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 midpoint release removes the  -XDTAannotationsincomments flag,  
that was introduced in the last release, and parses annotations in  
comments by default.

The changlogs of the specification and the implementations appear below.
