I was expecting it to be released a few months later, but JDK 5.0 (aka JDK 1.5 and Tiger) was released today. Go get it, jBoys and jGirls. While you are at it, you might want to lean over the edge a bit with Eclipse 3.1M2 since Eclipse 3.0.x has some Tiger-related issues as-is.
Speaking of Tiger, I am a tiger too chinese zodiac wise. Many times over in fact since chinese zodiac applies to months and hours as well. When all the signs, including those of my parents, are combined, I have several tigers, one dragon, and a bull. Of the three animals, tiger is my favorite. My wife thinks I am the Tigger though: roaring occasionally, but bouncing around happily most of the time.
Boing! Boing! oh ho ho HO!
