I like the advances in Java 1.5. You can find them on java.sun.com; I don't feel like giving a marketing blurb here. The generics are nice, as is autoboxing. Of course, it'll still be another year and a half before 1.5's new features hit the enterprise VMs that are the backbone of the stuff I work on, but hey, I can dream right?
