Java 5 has been out of beta for many years now -- in fact, Java 6 is also out of beta. You can download the latest version of Java 5 from the Sun Java site:

Oh, you mean this sentence?
"If you don't already have a 1.5 or greater Java 2 Standard Edition SDK ... Get the latest non-beta version posted."

That means that they recommend you get the highest version you can get without getting a beta version (which would be Java 7 at this point in time).

Try this page for the latest stable version.

[MdQ]: That means that they recommend you get the highest version you can get without getting a beta version (which would be Java 7 at this point in time).

As of today, that would be JDK 6 Update 3, I think, not JDK 7.

I meant that 7 was in beta, but I can understand your confusion.

I don't believe anything in JDK 7 has been announced as a beta - the early access snapshots aren't called betas as they still have far too many rough edges. In any event it seems more productive to focus on identifying what should be downloaded, not the many things that shouldn't.
