By the end of 2003, Java developers will be able to get their hands on a beta version of Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition 1.5 (J2SE 1.5). This release and the current 1.4 updates, 1.4.1 and 1.4.2, were covered in the J2SE roadmap session at the 2003 JavaOne Conference. If you were unable to attend the session, or want to refresh your memory, here are the key points from the talk.
I’m glad to see that they’re still working on bugfixes for the 1.4.x branch while pushing ahead with the 1.5 beta. Look for the major changes in 1.5 though.
