The jhandles itself is still there but seems not to build easily or whatever 
the problem is so that it is not in the list of packages, but I took it from 
the svn repo.
The last windows build with a fully functional jhandles was by accident 
exactly the build with the MSVC license issue. It was definitely not the 
jhandles itself which was the problem (I followed at that time the discussion 
and was a bit confused why the MSVC libs do not qualify as system libs).
Jhandles should in theory work well with mingw (in fact it does except a nasty 
bug when you try to close the plot windows), this bug does not exist on linux 
so I cannot debug it (my windows programming times are almost more than a 
decade ago).

To make a long story short, I would volunteer to help to save the jhandles 
package so that it has a future, if there is some interest that it still 
exists (I am a professional java programmer) but need time to understand the 
problems with the windows port.
