Finally, after months of silence something about the JDK6 for OS X has surfaced. According to Macrumors.com apple seeded Java SE 6 Preview 8 for Leopard yesterday evening. According to the report it’s Java SE 6 version 1.6.0_01, and apparently requires a 64-bit capable Intel-mac. So there is still room for ranting about the support for PPC platform.
I for one think it’s wonderful news to get support for JDK6, not so much for development purposes but for the improved performance and some random goodies included in the JDK.
Update: Apparently Apple also made Java SE 6 Developer Preview 8 available from the ADC site today. Go grab it, and stop complaining..
