J2SE 5.0 released

J2SE 5.0 has finally been released.

So, the product has shipped, generics and all. The generics feature has caused mountainloads of controversy, especially over the 'erasure' feature which makes the compiler 'forget' the type of a generic within a function (for more, see Bruce Eckels posts here, here, here and here).

So will all that controversy affect actual usage of generice in Java ? We shall have to see.
