Java 5 launched with redesign

From Tom Rutter, SitePoint’s community manager: has been redesigned. The latest version of the JRE available at is now 1.5.0_01.

The new design seems to put more emphasis on games (for mobile phones) with “games” and “mobile” sections coming before the “desktop” section.” is Sun’s site for end users to learn about Java technology and to obtain the Java runtime required to run Java applications on desktop computers. Until now, Java 1.4 was still the version distributed through this site, but with the redesign it now seems like Sun is prepared for the general public to use Java 5 (J2SE 1.5).
