Version 1.21 of Blitz JavaSpaces

Release Notes: A file handle leak in the logging subsystem was fixed. A deadlock caused by interaction between over-running user operations and transaction resolution under high concurrent load was removed. This release provides a loopback Jini Transaction Manager, which lives in the same JVM as the JavaSpaces service, thus providing a significant improvement in transaction throughput.
