Here is a huge list of blogs from developers working on Java SE 6.0, discussing the latest features included in the SE 6.0 release.
There are some interesting new features, but a couple caught my eye:
- Ability to have wildcards in classpath statements – similar to how you can define directory wildcards in ANT for including jars in your classpath. This is very handy.
- Native Look and Feel improvements, so that Swing apps using XP and GTK Look and Feels are rendered even closer to what you would see on the native OS.
- Sorting and filtering in Swing JTable – very cool.
