Late Tuesday, Apple released a pair of Java updates for its Mac OS X 10.5 and 10.6 operating systems. The updates (Java for Mac OS X 10.5 Update 10 and Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 5) make the same changes and per Macworld, offer “improved compatibility, security, and reliability.” The specifics on how the updates do this are unclear, however, as the release notes for both the 10.6 and 10.5 updates are a little light on the details.
Both updates are available via direct download from their respective web sites or via Mac OS X’s Software Update feature.
The updates require Mac OS X 10.5.8 and Mac OS X 10.6.4 to install and run, respectively.
If you’ve tried the updates and have any feedback to offer, please let us know.
