This morning i was wondering about the Java Kernel project and why nobody - outside SUN - noticed it. Today i found an answer in Chets Blog
who describes the features of a new Java Consumer JRE including Java kernel, a new Nimbus look and feel, a new Graphics pipeline under Windows and some other improvements.
Consumer JRE: a real winner
No, i dont want to get too optimisitc nor enthusiastic but the changes of Java 6 described in
Blog really look great.
According to Chet, one of the next coming Java 6 updates will include the following features:
Java kernel Project
Nimbus look and feel
new Windows graphics pipeline
Personally, i think Quickstarter and Java kernel are the two main improvements. Nimbus look and feel looks great. Just have a look at the screenshots in the Blog.
The other improvements on the installer and the like just seem to be of cosmetic nature but i want to test Quickstarter and Java Kernel
as soon as possible.
Great Work guys.
