     The J2SE platform 1.4.2 beta is the second maintenance release to J2SE
     1.4.0. It contains over 2100 bug fixes. Version 1.4.2 Beta advances rich
     client application development, builds on Java[TM] technology's
     cross-platform support and robust security model with new features and

     reliability and serviceability.

     Other new features in the J2SE platform 1.4.2 beta include:

     - 64-bit Intel Itanium 2 processors: With the J2SE 1.4.2 beta, Itanium 2
       IA-64 processors are now fully supported. A new server JIT compiler is
       available

     - Java Plug-in API: The Active X Bridge has been reimplemented in this
       release. A single Java Plug-in Control Panel now handles all versions of
       installed Java Plug-in APIs.

     - Java Web Start 1.4.2: Enhancements (RFEs) implemented in this release
       include: JAWS automatically detects all "registered" Java[TM] runtime
       environments (JREs) on the computer every time JAWS is run.
