This sort of came out of left field, but if you’re running Mac OS X 10.6, you should probably install it.

Late Friday, Apple released Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 12, a Java update for its Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) operating system.

The update, a 72.8 megabyte download, offers the following fixes and changes:

- Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 12 delivers improved security, reliability, and compatibility by updating Java SE 6 to 1.6.0_39.

As always, the update can also be located and installed via the built-in “Software Update” feature in Mac OS X.

The Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 11 fix requires an Intel-based Mac running Mac OS X 10.6.8 or later to install.

If you’ve tried the updates and have any feedback to offer, please let us know in the comments.
