3.1.1 promoted builds now include AIX archives

GlassFish 3.1.1 is well on it way with 4 promoted builds already out, including AIX support.

If you have an AIX system handy, please give it a try, it's meant to be a very stable build (3.1.1 will be very highly compatible with 3.1) and provide feedback. Issues should be filed with the appropriate 3.1.1_b0x "Affects Version".

With the exception of Mac OS, this is a (server) operating system where the JVM is not provided by Oracle but rather by IBM which makes it certainly more challenging but at the same time a very good exercise to demonstrate and improve the portability of the GlassFish codebase.

If you're interested in testing it as well, AIX nightly downloads are here.
