Java 1.6 Released
Yes, finally, JDK 6 is out in its final version ... it was released yesterday.
Just installed it myself today... (actually I installed a very early beta release last sprint, it was then similar in performance to JDK 5)
the first impression feedback from developers around is: The JVM is faster ... and much more faster than all Java versions that came out until the moment. that is in addition to tens of new and enhanced APIs...
and by the way, it now can deal smoothly with the .NET stupid webservice without any third part APIs.
on this occasion, Sun seem to have a new website out as well :)
