Java 1.5 to be released with nasty JEditorPane/HTML bug

Discussion in 'Java' started by Larry Barowski, Sep 10, 2004.

  1. I'm posting here in the hopes of applying some pressure to Sun,
    so that they might fix this bug before 1.5 final is released.

    The bug is " NPE when relative font sizes used in html "
    http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=5089077

    JEditorPane is now incapable of displaying much of the
    HTML generated by javadoc. They should at least fix it to
    the point where no NPE is thrown, even if the resulting
    HTML display is not perfect.

    I would suggest voting for this bug, but it is marked as "Closed,
    fixed" - in "mustang", which I guess is 1.6.

    Unfortunately Mustang is indeed 1.6 (or 6.0 now). I don't know if a code
    name has been allocated for (1.)5.1. Important fixes currently labeled
    as Mustang may be migrated to what ever they choose to call 5.1.

    I would rather guess 1.5.1; 1.6 is at least 18 months away using the
    "standard" release schedule.
