Java 1.5 on Tiger

Looks like Apples’s released Java 1.5 for Tiger. Not quite sure why people aren’t talking about this (was released same day as Tiger’s “official” release date) since a lot of people had mentioned it being present in the Tiger developer test releases and that it was absent from the final version released to the public. Looks like I can finally see about getting Liberty’s LSE up and running on OS X. Now I’m wondering if Apple bothers to provide separate packages containing the stand-alone Java runtime and the SDK…

Edit: Just did a little googling and discovered that not only is OS X 10.4 codenamed “Tiger”, but Java 1.5 is also codenamed “Tiger”. Weird.
