So while reviewing the release notes for Java on Leopard I noticed a couple of interesting bits. First they included junit 4.1 and maven 2.0.6 in the mix, which is great (except that maven 2.06 had some serious bugs with transitive dependencies). mvn is now on your path so you don't have to download to get maven on your leopard box. Second they really cleaned up the awt/swt issues in this release so we can use stuff like Batik in Eclipse now. They also made the default rendering pipeline the Sun pipeline. Over all a ton of good work. JDK 6 and hopefully the full open source stack of 7 will be happening soon enough.
So for Leopard apple did a ton of java work as well as deeply integrating ruby, over all i think we got a sweet package. And I am ignoring all the complaining.
Yes the lack of official information is irritating to me too...
