JDK1.1 and Web browsers

Question:
Do the changes made in the 1.1 API mean that if one wanted to write applets for the Web, one would have to use a previous version of the JDK? That is, do the browsers have knowledge of the API, or do they just execute bytecodes, so that changes in the API do not mean waiting for new browsers to ship? Or, have lower-level revisions occurred that affect the current bytecode 'instruction set'?

Answer:
Unfortunately, applets that use new JDK1.1 features, such as the new event model, will have to wait for JDK1.1-enabled browsers.
