Yes, there is a conflict with the introduction of but you do
not have to go back to Java 5...always go forward. What you can do is to
implicitly import the console by adding the following in your header in the (or wherever there is a conflict):

	import sim.display.Console;

I hope that resolves the problem.

If you're seeing 'console' errors, then you must be using Java 6, not  
Java 5.

In their wisdom, Sun created a class called "Console" in   
We'll have to resolve the ambiguity by referring to Console in  
Display3D and Display2D etc. using 'mason.sim.display.Console'  
instead of 'Console'.  Sadly, we're on Macs and don't have JDK 1.6;  
but you can do this by hand for the moment, it's not too tough.  Or  
backup to Java 5.
