Yeah, I wanted to try with 6.0 as well, because of the new swing back buffer
stuff, but I think no.jdk.check doesn't work in 3316.

Yes, I'm trying Idea with 1.6 eap.

back buffer stuff looks impressive BTW.

Yes, I think the back buffer makes a huge improvement in percieved performance.
I want to try it with IDEA. Maybe after Mustang, or maybe a few releases
later, Java will be on par with native desktop applications for real. :)

Could you, Windows people, stop showing off so blatantly on Tiger's
official release day when we, the JDK-challenged Mac people, get at last
the opportunity to start evaluating Java 5.0?

Thanks in advance for your comprehension.

Yeah, I was running IDEA with Mustang B32 before #3316, and the back buffering really helps with perceived performance. Not everything is perfect, thou. Redrawing of the left and right gutters is specially screwed (too lazy) when running under Mustang. Other than that, I've had no other issues with it, thankfully.

Alright, anxiously waiting for the next build so I can run with Mustang again :)

That was exactly my first thought when I first heard of JDK 1.6 :)

Sure, we'll do that when you guys stop showing off the fact that you own a mac, to start with :P

Being so few, we have to be proportionally a lot more vocal than "you"
in the forums, if we want our bugs to be solved during our lifetime.

I also had some problems with the filter in the Errors/Inspection
dialog. Pressing enter closed the dialog instead of filtering.

You will see what he's talking about... :)

Actually, the reason why I wanted to try it is the "additional text
anti-aliasing modes". But in fact it's not delivered yet :(

Yeah... so far there's only "standard" antialiasing. If you check the bugs on additional antialiasing modes (aka, cleartype, etc), there isn't a set release for them. Unfortunately :(

Anyways, the standard antialias under JDK1.5+ is greatly improved when compared to 1.4.2 -- give it a spin (and btw, you can enable global antialiasing with -Dswing.aatext=true)

Thanks for the tip!
Well I really miss ClearCase antialiasing.
