Could anyone with a recent Leopard build check the included Java version?

    I'm about to purchase a new development laptop, would like to buy a new MBP 17 (1920x1200). Although I would additionally need to purchase Leopard in October I really need the information whether Apple generally intends to ship a Java6 version with it (I just need some kind of perspective that I can develop with the latest Java version in 2007, otherwise an OSX machine does not fit my needs). I'd like to know whether Leopard per default includes a Java5 version (not good) or one of the old Java6 betas (offered on ADC, not good too) or some new stuff.

    Can someone please open a terminal and enter "java -version" and paste the output here?

    Would be really appreciated :)

    In order to do that the person with the developer version would have to break their NDA.

    Java6 64bit ships with Leopard

    Some quick googling revealed that a 64-bit Java6 will ship with Leopard, but it will probably not run on Tiger.

    That's somehow good news for me :)

    MBP 17" HD here I come :D
