Good question!

The next build to appear on java.sun.com will be the official 6u10 RC......which may be b27.

With b27 we changed the 'beta' to 'rc' (release candidate), this can be seen with 'java -version'. As soon as b27 was build we pushed it to java.net. With our milestone releases, Beta, RC, and FCS, we like to run through a longer test cycle. You can think of b27 as a candidate for RC. We are going through that test cycle now, and will be for about a week+. Once all of that testing is done, and if we feel it is ready, it will officially be stamped as RC and made available on java.sun.com. This is always the possibility that issues turn up that cause us to need a b28 before the official stamping as RC.........

So to answer your question, possibly in a little more then a week.

Thanks,
Roger

Thanks rogerl!
I have tested using b27 and wondering when the rc will appear on the site so I can time my support announcement to a release that shows up on the javasoft site. Since b26 was removed from the 6u10 binary downloads in short order and had a critical fix I needed I was wondering if b27 was going to be generally available.

Thx,
Tony
