How time flies! Just when most people have started using Java 5, you get this announcement from SUN.
Java SE 5.0 is in its Java Technology End of Life (EOL) transition period. The EOL transition period began April 8th, 2007 and will complete October 8th, 2009, when Java SE 5.0 will have reached its End of Service Life (EOSL).

Customers interested in continuing to receive critical fixes, are encouraged to consider the following options:
During this EOL transition period, the products will continue to be supported per existing customer support agreements.
For developer needs, all products that have completed the EOL transition period will be moved to the Archive area.
Makes me excited to see Java 6 go mainstream. But I guess the people from Apple has a little catching up to do, because up to until now, Java SE 6 for Mac OS X 10.5 is still in Developer Preview.
