-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
As of today, the 2005.1 profiles for sparc32 and sparc64 have been
deprecated. The major change this will cause is that Java is no longer
supported. Basically the SPARC port for the one Java solution that was
available (blackdown) has the following issues:
* Outstanding security issues
* Very unstable performance, particularly on SMP systems
* Version of glibc it needed was holding the toolchain back.
If Java becomes a viable option again, an update will be posted.
