…on the ADC web site.
"Release 6" is Apple's internal numbering of their JDK. What's inside seems to be Java 5: "This release updates J2SE 5.0 to version 1.5.0_13 and Java 1.4 to version 1.4.2_16."
Yes, it's release 6 Developer Preview 1 of Java _5_.
Robert Cooper, shut up.
I found the other day floating around on the web a Java 6_U1 for Leopard they got from a NDA. If is true that maybe we can see Java 6 on Leopard soon.
"Release 6" is Apple's internal numbering of their JDK.
My mistake then. :)
This isn't the Java 6 preview, but a preview for updating JDK1.4 and JDK1.5:
"Java for Mac OS X 10.4, Release 6 delivers improved reliability and compatibility for Java 2 Platform Standard Edition 5.0 and Java 1.4 on Mac OS X 10.4.10 and later. This release updates J2SE 5.0 to version 1.5.0_13 and Java 1.4 to version 1.4.2_16."
Don't install this update if you want to use Java 6 on your tiger install!
Yet another quality post from Robert.
Please remove this news, if it is wrong. People are wasting their time reading this hoax!
Please remove Robert Cooper from this site!
Ok people, so it was a bit hasty and sloppy for Cooper to post this, but it is a bit confusing when Apple names it "Release 6," and when they otherwise won't say a damn thing one way or the other.
Also, in related but different news, there is now a port of OpenJDK Java 6 for Leopard (http://landonf.bikemonkey.org/code/macosx/MacOS_Java_16_Developer_Preview_1.20071120.html), it's got a few quirks, and requires X, but it's a great start. Props to Landon Fuller.
The best part is that, given how completely dead this site has become, this piece of misinformation has been on the front page for a month now.
jeez. what a waste of time. please take it off!
