SBUML was supported in part by a Grant-in-Aid for Precursory Research
for Embryonic Science and Technology (PRESTO), from Japan Science and
Technology Agency (JST). Addition support has been provided by the
Exploratory Software Project of the Information-technology Promotion
Agency (IPA). Study of Jeff Dike's UML code (with all its trampolines
and other interesting techniques) was done jointly with Osamu Sato and
Professor Masami Hagiya of Tokyo University. Important portions of
the current code were written by Osamu Sato. Mitsuharu Yamamoto helped
with testing and provided needed Linux expertise.
Current development is being funded by a Grant-in-Aid for Core Research
for Evolutional Science and Technology (CREST), from the Japan Science
and Technology Agency (JST).
Special acknowledgments must be given to Jeff Dike, for creating the
UML system, and Greg Lonnon, who contributed UML's original
copy-on-write(COW) feature, which has been essential for making
snapshots small enough to be practical.
