Post Java 6 Update 10 - a big deal?
Read more here.

Update 10 is a significant minor version update that should have huge positive implications for FactoryPMI. Sun approaches many of the deficiencies of the current platform. A few highlights.

    Quicklauncher to speed up first load time
    Java Kernel is 4-5 megs, and downloads what it needs instead of the entire 14 meg JRE.
    Next generation plugin for Applets and Java Web Start with emphasis on FireFox, Vista, and other popular technologies.
    Better development support for detection - think Gateway Configuration Page
    Improved 2D performance by using Windows API and Direct3D. The justification used to be, "it should run on all platforms", but why not optimize for your largest customer base?

Nimbus Look and Feel - we could change to it. You can try a demo here - should run better if you have update 10 installed. What do you guys think?

I'm pretty excited as update 10 should nicely accompany our Native 2D (Vector) graphics.
