Is there anything particulary  amazing in all this?

It looks like we can resize arrays now.

Oooo...
    Improved user experience in JRE/JDK installer
   Improved desktop integration in Java Web Start
   Improved user experience in Java Plug-in and Java Web Start

Hopefully the whole thing looks much less scary than before. I always get people panicing and clicking "no" to the permissions stuff (and then asking me why it doesn't work).

Applet handling is much better in java 1.6, no longer does java hang your browser with a horrible grey box, it now has a nice loading screen that shows how much of the applet has loaded. Applets were IMO probably one of the biggest things that has given java a bad name and impression that its slow, but i'm glad that it has now improved.

As mentioned above speed is great too, large FPS boost on all games Smiley

I've started using Java 6 beta, and I've already noticed the following changes:

- It fixes an annoying white flash that was occuring at the start of all my full-screen applications.
- TextComponents already have copying and pasting text (via shift-insert, etc.) enabled by default, so I don't have to enable it myself.
- I had a NullException randomly occuring at start up because of a problem in my code which didn't have any effect in Java 5.  I figured out that I needed to replace the RepaintManager before going to full-screen mode.  This is an issue specific to my code and didn't actually cause any problems that would affect the user because the NullException was always caught anyways.
