  Apple Releases Java 1.4.1 for Mac OS X
Subject:   It looks nicer, but consumes more memory and feels slower.

JBuilder 7 takes 25% more memory and feels noticeably slower than before. Plus, the HTML documents in JBuilder Help used to be fine under 1.3.1, slightly broken after the first installation of 1.4.1 DP, and now it's totally invisible.


Also, "Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getFontList()" works fine under 1.3.1, but fails under all versions of 1.4.1 with "NullPointerException" originated within "sun.java2D.SunGraphicsEnvironment.getAvailableFontFamilyNames()".

    I've experienced this same problem on one (and only one) of my systems. I cannot reproduce the problem on other systems. Apple seemed interested in the error for a while, but I haven't heard anything back from them in a long time about it. I'm guessing a complete reinstall of the OS will fix the problem, but I haven't resorted to that yet.
