It's been how long? Thank you Apple for getting this out! Anyway, Java for Mac OS X 10.5 Update 1: This Java for Mac OS X 10.5 Update 1 adds Java SE 6 version 1.6.0_05 to your Mac. This update does not replace the existing installation of J2SE 5.0 or change the default version of Java. Oh, and, 13949712720901ForOSX
I'm giving a session at JavaOne this year titled "Hacking the OpenJDK" and it's been very interesting sitting with this topic these last few months.

There is a lot of exciting stuff in 6u10 (formerly known as 6uN) .. there is a lot more here than the...

Anyway it is also Dalibor's way of announcing something really kewl. I am so tickled to have the opportunity to work with him more closely, so here's a few thoughts .. In the pre-open source days .. the old days, back when we were arguing it wasn't...
