QuickTime Gets a Caffeine Boost -- Apple today announced the public beta release of QuickTime for Java, further extending the reach of QuickTime to any application written in Java on either the Mac OS or Windows. For the moment, QuickTime for Java will interest only developers, but Java support is an important step for Apple's goal of QuickTime ubiquity. QuickTime for Java requires that you first install MRJ 2.1 (or JRE 1.1.x or 1.2 if you're using the Windows Java Runtime Environment) and QuickTime 3.0.2 - see the QuickTime for Java installation page for links.
