Sun developers blog new Java SE 6.0 Mustang features

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.
