    Apple today ( 04 Dec '09) released a pair of software updates for users of Mac OS X Snow Leopard and Leopard, delivering updated versions of Java containing the latest performance and security fixes.

    - Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 1 weighs in at 78 MB and requires Mac OS X 10.6.2.
    Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 1 delivers improved reliability, security, and compatibility for Java SE 6. Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 1 supersedes the previous Java for Mac OS X 10.6.

    This release updates Java SE 6 to version 1.6.0_17. This release is only for Mac OS X 10.6.2 or later versions of Mac OS X 10.6. This release of Java SE 6 is available on Intel-based Macs only.

    Details of the security content included in the update can be found in the associated support document.

    - Java for Mac OS X 10.5 Update 6 weighs in at 122 MB and requires Mac OS X 10.5.8.
    Java for Mac OS X 10.5 Update 6 delivers improved reliability, security, and compatibility for J2SE 5.0 and Java SE 6. Java for Mac OS X 10.5 Update 6 supersedes all previous updates of Java for Mac OS X 10.5.

    This release updates J2SE 5.0 to 1.5.0_22, and updates Java SE 6 to 1.6.0_17. J2SE 1.4.2 is no longer being updated to fix bugs or security issues and is therefore disabled by default in this update. This release is only for Mac OS X 10.5.8 or later versions of Mac OS X 10.5. This release of J2SE 5.0 supports all Intel and PowerPC-based Macs. Java SE 6 is available on 64-bit Intel-based Macs only.

    Full security details are available in the support document for the release.

    Thanks bhoyet... NOW we mods don't really like subsequent posts saying , "Downloading now…" or "Thanks for the heads up!" If you have to post something about this topic, please make it more substantial and not commonplace. We already KNOW that you are downloading so there's no need to post it here.

    Beeyatch mode, exit…

    Yesterday I was in a restaurant along Timog, saw 1 guy with MacBook Air, and they are arguing why they can't view YouTube videos, one said you need to download Java, I was tempted to speak already. they ended up shutting it off.
