    A java.random library

    843853
      I think it's high time that the java library include some implementations of popular algorithms in the API - things like Mersenne Twister, ISAAC, Blum Blum Shub (;~)), etc. It would help get people out of the habit of using crappy prng's just because they're available (and Math.random() >.<). It would also help people save the time writing/implementing/finding their own prng implementations, which is what the API is for, anyway.
