Sorry for not opining on this thread. However I don't like to look back into the past and it makes sense to me to move to Java 6 since 5 has reached EOL. However if people feel strongly about coming out with Java 5 then I will yield to their needs before mine.
We can move to Java 6 with versions to follow.
