Can someone more Macintosh literate than me explain how java security
updates are handled on the Macintosh platform?
Apple's web site says "Apple has optimized Java on Mac
Sun's java site says to download java from the Apple site:
The update offered there is dated February 15th, 2007. The only
java versions available are 1.5.0_07 and 1.4.2_12. Those
versions are significantly out of date. There have been at least
six critical java security udpates since December that are not
included in the offered versions.
