Question: What are enhancements were added to new javac since 1.4.2?

Answer: The following enhancements and bug fixes have been made to the javac source compiler in the Java 2 SDK.
RFE 4626998 implemented: Added -cp synonym for -classpath option to set classpath.
RFE 4515858 implemented: Added -Xbootclasspath/p: option to prepend to bootclasspath.
RFE 4253402 implemented: Added -Xmaxerrors and -Xmaxwarns to increase the number of errors and warnings printed by javac.

Also optimizations have been made to the core libraries to reduce startup time. For a small command line application, startup time has been reduced by roughly thirty percent; for a small Swing application, by fifteen to twenty percent.
In some rare situations, one optimization related to filename canonicalization may cause inconsistent views of the host platform's file system to be briefly visible to Java applications. The optimization caches, for a short time, the results of calls to File.getCanonicalFile() and File.getCanonicalPath(). If a file is moved by another application then the canonicalization result for that file may briefly differ from its true value, although attempts to open and access the file will succeed or fail as before. Applications should not rely on the presence or absence of such inconsistencies. If an application must disable this optimization for correctness purposes then the system property -Dsun.io.useCanonCaches=false may be specified.
