Hi Laszlo,

I've sent my best wishes to Calvin Austin already ;) Regarding 1.5, 
there is a generics branch in GNU Classpath. If you are interested in 
helping out with generics, you might want to check that out.

In terms of compilers, eclipse java compiler looks like it may become 
the first free software compiler to support the 1.5 language, given 
IBM's commitment to it. Tom Tromey's gcjx is also actively being hacked 
on, as is kjc, afaict, and jikes, but I don't know what their plans are 
wrt to supporting 1.5 features.
