Mission Control 2.0, internally dubbed Energy (since it's mc^2), is going to be released as part of the JRockit R27.1 release, which is currently targeted at mid December. Since December isn't that far off, I thought I'd give you a little sneak peak of what it will look like.

In the not very distant future (no target date yet) Mission Control will also be offered as a set of eclipse/workshop plug-ins from an update site, so that you always can have the latest Mission Control running from within your development environment.
The upgrade path from Mission Control 1.0 to Mission Control 2.0 is fairly easy; Mission Control 1.0 enterprise licenses are compatible with 2.0 - the upgrade is free!
The next addition to the Mission Control family of tools is already being worked on, and even though I can't reveal any details just yet, I can tell you that the little Java Developer within me is jumping up and down with joy and excitement. ;)
