Chet Haase's Blog: Consumer JRE: Leaner, Meaner Java
Recently, Thorsten Laux and I gave a talk at JavaOne 2007 about where we are and where we're going in Desktop Java. We covered the download numbers (awesome!), statistics on how many PCs have Java installed (excellent!), and highlighted various desktop applications that use our Desktop Java technologies (fantastic!). We then quickly covered some of the larger features that were implemented in the recent Java SE 6 release (which I won't go into here; check out the various blogs and articles on the topic for more on those features).
