Why 1.4 JDK?

Have you plans for using generics and other new stuff from JDK 1.5? Why Toolkit is still using plain old JDK 1.4?

Yes, generics support has been planned for a long time. In order to support older J2EE servers that only support JDK 1.4 we have not yet dropped support for JDK 1.4. Need for JDK 1.4 support is declining rapidly, so we wish to be able to drop it and add full fledged support for generics and annotations in future.
