Java 1.5 (no, 5.0) is here

Well, it has been here since 30th of September 2004 but I just came across it.
Some highlights of J2SE 5.0:
  • New language updates: Metadata, Generics, Enumerated types, Autoboxing of primitive types [
  • Me: Is there anything in the language updates (as a headline) not from .NET?]
  • New JVM Monitoring and Management API [Me: Useful, but we have events in .NET for most of these and we have healthMonitoring stuff in .NET 2.0]
  • Improved out-of-box performance [Me: Cool]
  • New (but compatible) default Java look and feel.
