I would like to, but there are no binaries for linux, mac os and solaris. I've not the time to build it by myself for all those platforms (32 and 64 Bit) and I'm not sure if i can use the old binaries for *unix with the new version of the java api. Are there problems with the older version?
Not problems, just the umask feature in 1.0.8:
DAEMON-221: Add -umask to jsvc so that users don't have to
recompile the jsvc if different umask is desired (1.0.8)
I have just built jsvc from source (1.0.10) and it works fine (on Debian 6.0.4 x86). The 1.0.10 release is compatible with 1.0.3, and the provided binaries are 1.0.5 (if I remember correctly). From the release notes:
