EVALUATION I notice in 1.4.2 the unnamed package appears as: <unnamed package> in the list of packages in the upper left pane. I think the name must be set off visually from other package names somehow, and the angle brackets work well. However, with the new use of angle brackets for type parameters, we might want to change them to parentheses in this case: (unnamed package) I think this name is preferable to "Unnamed". ###@###.### 2003-08-28 Fixed. ###@###.### 2003-09-16
