Does anyone have a list of the different versions of the JDK from Sun and when they were released?

Thanks for the responses, I found what I was looking for at the following link:
Java Time Line
However it stops after 1.3, anyone know when 1.4 shipped? And when 1.5 might ship?
Here's what I have so far:
Jan '96 1.0
Feb '97 1.1
Dec '98 1.2
May '00 1.3
?? 1.4
?? 1.5
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
