Backward-compatibility issues (not [b]real[/b] issues, though):

1. [b]jaxb-libs.jar[/b] seems to no longer be with us. May it rest in peace?
2. Projects using should take the new nightly build (of April 7), as the API has been changed (in [b]jaxb-xjc.jar[/b]).

The contents of jaxb-libs.jar have been mostly moved into jaxb1-impl.jar (for those who continue to run 1.0-generated code)

Code generated in JAXB 2.0 no longer require those large supporting libraries.
