Today my MacBook's Software Update alerted me to very happy news: Java SE 6 ready to be installed! I knew that Apple was closing in on the release but to achieve this milestone just the week before JavaOne is great!
Apple yesterday pushed out Java SE 6 for Mac OS X. Software Update installs it as an additional Java run-time on your machine. Through the Java Preferences app (found in the Java folder in Utilities) you can set the default VM to use. After installing I set that to SE 6 and I am happy to report so far all is well!
Bahamontes , my own hobby project, works just fine including the Java 3D stuff. Which reminds me that I need to push out to sourceforge the changes I have made in the last couple of months. I have been looking at the SwingX components - so far took in the Calendar and DatePicker components, a huge improvement to the UI of Bahamontes as my ride collection is growing - but there's a lot more interesting stuff there.
And not only Java SE 6 on Mac OS X is new but also the Netbeans community just pushed out Netbeans 6.1 as well! More new installations to do!
