Java The first benchmark of Mustang (JDK1.6) versus Tiger (JDK1.5) shows that Java users are up for an agreeable surprise. According to this JavaLobby discussion the virtual machine raw speed has improved significantly (40-100%). Although, the core library implementation (e.g. collections) could also benefit from some rework/optimizations.

Java 6 seems to be shaping up quite nice and these are all beta builds! Besides the performance advantage I am ooking forward to the GroupLayout being included in the final release because Matisse is so much faster to use to create GUIs and I hate the idea of having to bundle the additional layout as a separate jar. I hope they integrate it finally. And for those who like to live on the bleeding edge, you guys should check out the java 6 build from java.net instead of what sun is hosting as a beta because that beta is really really old.

You will have to bundle it anyway for years to come as new JRE adoption is not instant.
If it will have the same interface as the one you use now, you will encounter additional problems on 1.6
