Yesterday JavaSE 6 released…
check it out :

Don’t know exactly what are new at Java 6
I read from several article mostly about
– enchantment in desktop application performance
– a interesting JSR 199 – Java Compiler API (allows Java source to be compiled from within a Java application)
– Of course JDBC 4.0 (Who can live without connection to database :p)

The release IMO seems to soon, even Java 1.4 still used more than Java 5. Maybe because Java now Open Sourced the release gonna be short release cycle
I always interest in new technology, so hopefully I can catch up with Java’s fast movement
