1. 1.6.0_06 is the latest GA on July 4, 2008. Sun stopped listing the exact version, for end user simplicity I guess, its just "Java 6" now. Only DEVs need to know the exact version I suppose. Since the next gen deployment is upcoming (automatically uses current version) that makes sense to stick with just "Java 6".

2. Port? What do you mean "port"? If you mean that you want to run your pre-Java 6 compiled app under Java 6, then you don't have to anything. Almost always are Java apps forward compatible.
