+Java compatibility
+------------------
+
+IcedTea is derived from OpenJDK, Sun's open-source implementation of
+the Java SE platform.  At this time the build from which IcedTea was
+constructed corresponds to an early build (b21) of JDK 7.  When JDK 7
+is complete it will implement the Java SE 7 Platform Specification.
+Work on that specification is underway, but far from final.  Any APIs
+in the JDK 7 implementation, whether new or old, are therefore subject
+to minor adjustments, major revisions, or even outright removal
+between now and the time that the Java SE 7 Platform Specification is
+finalized.  Please take these facts into account before depending upon
+IcedTea.
