Angry Update Red Hat 9 Java version!

Why does Red Hat 9 come with Java 1.3.1???
Shouldn't it upgrade to say, Java 1.4.2??

The Java SDK is free so why they don't upgrade??? I had to install it myself!!

Well, according to 1.4.2 is a new release. Also when packages where put together for redhat it was probably at lot earlier then the actual release date. Also it is better to play it safe and use know stable packages then trying a new version that might have some bugs.
