>Finally: Java 6 for Mac OS X

29 Apr

>Apple has finally delivered Java 6 for Mac OS X as part of an update called Java for Mac OS X 10.5 Release 1. There was a Java 6 pre-release for Tiger, ages ago, but finally the real thing seems to have arrived. Let’s hope it fixes most of the bugs in the pre-release.

It’s well-known that this release comes really late. Java 6 was released (for Windows and Linux) in December 2006 and Java 5 has already entered it’s Technology End of Life (EOL) transition period.

Too bad the update is only for Leopard (Mac OS X 10.5) and requires a 64-bit Intel processor (such as the Core 2 Duo).
