Sugar to the sharks.

Some news about Java 1.5 from the inside:

One the concurrency-interest list Doug Lea stated the following in a message he wrote about one week ago:
Quote
While I'm at it: The currently posted APIs as of today (modulo
cosmetic touch-ups) are the ones that will appear in the first public
beta of Sun JDK1.5.0, due out the first week of February. (This week
is internal API freeze deadline for beta1.)

I'm really looking forward to 1.5. If there now was (good) news about the fate of the isolation API...

I used to think that the brain was the most wonderful organ in my body.  
Then I realized who was telling me this.

Well, one can always ask Grin
Isolation interest group:

However, I don't expect it to be in 1.5. They said it will go in parallel.

February 2004? that's two years after 1.4.0 final. Two and a half when Tiger becomes final. So, isn't that a little slow for a main release? I thought the plan was 12-18 months cycle for major releases.

Java grows with every release. If Sun wants to keep to the 12-18 months cycle they need more resources (people), which may not pay off. Maybe Sun has to change their strategy to resolve all the bugs and grow Java in a shorter time. They could split up the JRE in smaller pieces and start opensourcing parts of it.  Wink

I couldn't agree more. And what can be better for bugfixing than OSS. I actually think that they will be forced to do something along that lines, just to keep pace with the other (uhmm "dark" ) side.
