Go to java.sun.com and read the news items. They're hard to miss, right at top of the page content.

I have not noticed any significant features of Java 6 myself. Certainly none worthy of it being a "6." Maybe 5.1 it should have been.

Anybody see anything besides more libraries? Does it have covariance?

Not yet.

But there are over 500 new classes which weren't in J2SE5.0. That is more than the difference between J1.2 and J1.3 without there being any syntactic changes.
