Swing Tutorial demo requires Java 6!Since I'm working on new TreeList support for Glazed Lists, I decided to go through Sun's fantastic Swing Tutorial. Although it's a really useful resource, it is still really rough around the edges. For example, instead of a Mac screenshot, there's the text
[PENDING: Mac pic goes here]. Engineering teams are in short supply, so this type of stuff doesn't bother me.
But what's surprising is that the demo requires Java 6! Regrettably I don't have the new Mustang beta on my Mac, mostly because I need something stable for development. I can't imagine that I'm the only one with this problem.
I guess they're probably showing off some of the new APIs in the tutorial. Perhaps it would have been better to provide different versions of the tutorial for different versions of Java?
