Java Release 6 for Tiger

Apple has officially released a new Java client, specifically tailored to Mac OS X 10.4. Release 6 requires that a Mac be updated to Mac OS X 10.4.10, specifically, and is an 80MB download. The update is said to improve "reliability and compatibility" for Java SE 5.0 and Java 1.4; the former shifts to v1.5.0_13, while Java 1.4 has been patched to v1.4.2_16. The download is a Universal Binary; as of press time, Apple has not properly updated its release notes page to document all changes.

    Great...

    Now do you think it would be possible for Apple to update to Java 6.0 sometime in the next decade?

    Independent Resolution?

    Apple's description says, "Deploying Java applications on Mac OS X takes advantage of many built-in features, including 64-bit support, resolution independence, automatic support of multiprocessor hardware, native support for the Java Accessibility API, and the native Aqua look and feel."

    I hadn't heard independent resolution had come to fruition.

    Re: ind. res.

    Its not, per se, but the frameworks and API are available. And, I believe, you can turn it on with the developer's tools.
