Java News from Wednesday, March 22, 2006

Apple has posted the seventh beta of Java 5 Release 4 for Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) on the Apple Developer Connection (first born child required). This is based on Sun's J2SE 1.5.0_06. Most importantly it is compatible with the Intel Macs, enables native Quartz rendering by default, and makes Java 1.5 the default instead of 1.4.
