I'd like to release 1.10.1 on Wednesday the 30th of March at 14h00 UTC.

The current change list looks like this:

New in release 1.10.1 (2011-XX-XX):

* Backports
  - S7023591, S7027667: Clipped antialiased rectangles are filled, not drawn.
  - Ignore all unknown options, but report them.
  - Fixes build for newer gcc (at least 4.4) on PPC64, breaks older gcc.
  - CA123: LD_LIBRARY_PATH and java.library.path.
  - CA143: don't hang with invalid locale.
  - CA144: aligned patchers on x86_64.
  - CA148: support for LCMP bytecode.
  - CA152: Calling Policy.setPolicy with a new Policy object has no effect on the DefaultSecurityManager.
  - CA156: uncaughtExceptionHandler doesn't work with OpenJDK 6 b21.
  - CA157: ARM SMP Assertion thinlock failed.
* JamVM
  - Fix reflective array access.
  - Handle O_DELETE in JVM_Open.
  - Minor performance improvement on ARM.
  - First set of changes to support JamVM/OpenJDK on MacOS X.
  - Minor memory leak (missing free).
  - Handle integer overflow on i386/amd64.
  - On ARM, force interpreter to be built in ARM mode.
  - MIPS: 64-bit and interpreter inlining by default.
  - Trivial implementation of stubs for MIPS.

[I've cleaned this up a little; the current one in 1.10 is a bit of mess and I'll push the changes before release]

I'd also like to add in the hs20 bump posted for review:


and the fix here for libpng 1.5:


provided it still works fine with libpng 1.4.x.

Any other additions?
