Well I got the jar file from one of your earlier web pages, some time between
5/17/11 and 6/09/11 and it was named kerberos-login-handler-1.0.jar,
so the assumption is that it was the 1.0 to be released.

The jar file had the examples. The jar plus the web pages was enough to
get it working.  Previous I had the 0.6 version working with IdP-2.3.

The doc/RELEASE.txt does say:
Release Notes

Kerberos Login Handler

- Initial release

The main differences I can see are whitwspace in examples,
and 2 spelling changes in the examples. As the old jar did not
have the source, I can't tell what else might have changed.

No, I use SVN and maven with the X509-login-handler, just that you had
previously release jar files for testing, so having to use svn seamed
like a step backwards.

I have now have the svn exported  and built and will try later today.
