      Description

      The current .Net build script (ant build.NET) is for IKVM 0.38, released 15 months ago.

      Since that time, IKVM has grown to support a larger portion of the Java object model. I am currently investigating the possibility of improved font support, as our IKVM-compiled version crashes if PDType1CFont.prepareAWTFont is called.

      The downside of the upgrade will be loss of support for the .Net 1.1 Framework. In my opinion, that is not a big deal as very few projects still rely on it.

      I welcome opinions before committing any changes.
