          An Evolving interface may eventually become Standard  or
          Stable but is still in transition.

          Sun will make reasonable efforts to ensure compatibility
          with  previous  releases as it evolves. When non-upwards
          compatible changes become necessary, they will occur  in
          minor  and  major releases; such changes will be avoided
          in micro releases whenever possible. If such a change is
          necessary,  it  will  be documented in the release notes
          for the affected release, and when  feasible,  Sun  will
          provide migration aids for binary compatibility and con-
          tinued source development.

Are you still afraid ?
