Java News from Saturday, December 11, 2004

The Eclipse Project has posted the first milestone release of AspectJ 1.5/5.0 (stealing a version numbering scheme from the JDK). AspectJ is a derivative of Java that allows programmers to write code that applies across multiple classes. The AspectJ compiler requires Java 1.3 but can generate code for Java 1.1 and later. This release is focused on Java 1.5/5.0 compatibility. By the way, would somebody please remind the Eclipse Project that unlinkable framed pages went out of style back in 1998? Thanks.
