June 8, 2007: Greg Lewis has released the fifth patchset (patchlevel 5, "Tantanoola") for the JDK™ 1.5.0 software. The marks a major update in the base JDK™ source code since the patchset is now based on the JRL licensed 1.5.0 Update 11 source code rather than the earlier 1.5.0 SCSL licensed code base.

April 7, 2006: Greg Lewis has released the third patchset (patchlevel 3, "Siberian") for the JDK™ 1.5.0 software. This release should be suitable for most applications, as most of the changes since the last patchset are changes which were backported from the binary release source base to make it JCK compliant. In addition, Java Web Start now works and a problem with the zlib library which caused Eclipse to crash has been fixed. However, use in a production environment is at your own risk, as always.
