This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
For most programmers Java 6 didn't introduce much important new stuff. For the purposes of the book, you should be able to use Java 5 and Java 6 interchangeably. I'm not saying that something minor won't come up, but on the other hand I wouldn't be surprised if everything from the book worked the same. I'm pretty sure that we're not going to worry about updating the book until Java 7 comes along.
Spot false dilemmas now, ask me how!
