The event handling is done by the class libraries, not the virtual
machine. A number of other new features were in Java 1.1 (e.g. inner
classes), they don't require a new virtual machiine just a new compiler.

The only virtual machine changes between 1.0 and 1.1 were bugfixes and
security related changes. Java 1.0 and Java 1.1 programs will run happily
on the same virtual machine; they will probably require different class
