I haven't ordered it from Amazon yet since I don't know what I'll get. If you hit Search Inside, what's shown is the old book (eventhough the new book is shown in the initial image). There's references throughout the page to version 1.4. I sent an email to Amazon recently, asking them to modify their page for this book to clarify if it's for v1.4 or v5, but they haven't done anything.

I ordered this book over a week ago from the standard amazon.com but have not recieved it yet. However, my invoice says that the expected delivery date is Feb 4, so I'm waiting until then before I email them. Also, my order included another textbook, so it is possible that is holding it up as well.
pre ordered in november. still no clue. hopefull feb 1st is when i will get it as per the latest notification from customer support. amazon sucks at backoffice work. they keep changing status to ships in 24 hrs every alternate week.
It seems Amazon may finally be shipping. I ordered my copy on January 19th and it finally shipped on the 29th. It's a good thing I ordered Head First Servlets and JSP at the same time so that I've had something to read while I wait for the K&B SCJP5 book to be shipped.
