Java 6 just arrived on Leopard

April 30, 2008 ·

The latest software update for Mac OS X 10.5.2 adds Java 1.6.0_05 but does not change your default setup. See this tech note for more details. I haven't yet switched to Java 6 as my default JRE but I will shortly. Happy to hear any early feedback from folks.

    ya know i am still afraid to install things like this and I unfortunately can thank those fine fine software makers **choke n puke** in redmond, but I am slowing learning that on a mac it's pretty safe . So I installed it and all is well in typical mac fashion.

    Can't tell yet if any overall improvements but all is still working well.

    I couldn't get it to work with either CF 8.01 or FlexBuilder

    I switched JVM in the Java panel AND changed the CurrentJDK symlink to 1.6.0.

    Either applications wouldn't start stating JVM critical errors.

    I hope you are more lucky than I !!

    I think I'll stick with SoyLatte for now. It's been out in the woods a lot longer than this (even before the developer preview) and seems to be updated and cared for a bit more than Apple cares for their JVMs. But, that's just my preference.
