Sorry guys but I don't find a forum better thant this to my question.
I am using J2SE 1.4.0 and now I want to download a new version.
as you know, sun launches J2SE 1.5 beta, so:
can I download this version and use it for my development or wait until a stable version released?
and how many time takes a stable verion to be released?

if you are not referring to the code that already works in production as well, then go and mess around with 1.5, otherwise I would not prefer it.

I run the 1.5 on a separate machine for testing. Seems quite nice, though I still have doubts with the new language structures (especially static imports and the new for-loop syntax).

There is the Java 1.4.2_03 release that is supposed to be an improvement on 1.4.0 - why not use that?
Here are the release notes.
