JSyn on Linux status

i just got JSyn working on linux (after a bit of a struggle... whew!).
i'm writing how i did it because the documentation in one of the
makefiles asked about it. also, the websites' docs don't explain very
well at all on installation for linux.
to setup everything where i wouldn't have to do classpath stuff or
designate where the .so was, i did the following:
-copied all of the .jar files (JSynClasses.jar, SoftSynthTools.jar,
Wire.jar) to the [JAVA_HOME]/jre/lib/ext directory
-changed the permissions to rw-rw-rw- (chmod 666 *.jar)
-copied the libJSynV142.so to the [JAVA_HOME]/jre/lib/i386 dir
and that was it. (the permissions thing drove me nuts! i had thrown
everything in the ext dir and the runtime wasn't finding the classes.
took forever to narrow down.)
(NOTE: i think this is considered bad form. optionally, you could add
the jars to your CLASSPATH environment variable, also making sure that
permissions are set to rw-rw-rw- on the jars, and then add the
libJSynV142.so to /usr/local/lib and run ldconfig as root, which should
register the shared library)
anyways, i now have JSyn running on linux. now i was wondering: what's
the status of JSyn on linux? when i looked at it, it looked as if the
linux version was pretty behind the windows and macintosh versions.
this is important to me because i use linux primarily.
