I suppose that's true -- I've read books that were on version 5 of
Java, but were written with a Beta SDK and contained an old SDK (1.4 I
think it was) on the CD in the back.  *shrugs*  [By the way, in this
case, the versions were 1.4 -> 5, meaning the one that was released
right after 1.4 was numbered 5.  Really weird.]
