Note that this upgrade only works on 64-bit Macs.

For those of us not (yet) fortunate enough to own one, check out these links:

Once you've installed this you may notice the default version of java (reported by java -version on the terminal) has not changed. You need to go to Applications -> Utilities -> Java -> Java Preferences and change the "Java Version" radio selection AND drag the "Java Application Runtime Settings" around so that Java 6 is at the top.

If you want to build from the command line I found that grails needs JAVA_HOME set.

I did this with

export JAVA_HOME="/System/Libraries/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.6/Home
