Apple updates Java to 1.4.1! Bout danged time. Java performance has been abyssmal, as you've seen me rant and rave here for some time, and I'd barely scratched the surface of Apple's JVM being a generation behind what's been out for Sun's supported platforms. Mainly this has been because I've, nevertheless, been impressed with Apple's support for Java. The package a VM with the OS, making Java app deployment a cinch, and they provide a customized, accelerated version of Swing that makes your app look like any native app in Aqua. Other people were starting to release 1.4 for the PowerPC, though, and it's nigh time Apple got this update out.

Finally -- I get to use the mousewheel in my Java apps on Mac. Time to download the update and see if this VM is worth a rip.
