Java 6 dp8 finally available on OS X
Apple finally made Java 6 dp8 available on OSX 10.5.1 to ADC members (free account). It has been fairly inexcusable and just a huge bummer that it was not available earlier. I really wish Apple would take Java more seriously. Even Landon Fuller got it out before Apple did. Come on Steve, please allocate more resources to it.
Update: I just tried to install it and am getting the error message "Your computer does not need this update." Oh, I can't even begin to tell you how wrong that message is. Dear Matt Drance, please come back from vacation soon! =) I just filed radar bug #5663661
Update 2: It turns out that my Mac is a Core Duo and not a Core Duo 2 so the 64 bit version of Java won't work on my Mac. =( Bummer.
