One of the side effects of silent JDK installation is that it does not install the public JRE. Apparently some users have been using the without our documentation or approval. As a workaround to the JDK not installing the public JRE when in silent mode, we recommend also bundling up and launching the stand-alone JRE installer from the JSC download site.We intend to provide full silent JDK installer support in 6u15, under the following CR: 6845077 - silent JDK should install JRE/Java DB silently In 6u14 Java Web Start, if you specify an insecure Java system property in a sandbox JNLP file, Java Web Start fails to launch and notifies that JARs in the sandbox JNLP file are not signed.Users who have Java SE 6 Update 13 have the latest security fixes and do not need to upgrade to this release to be current on security fixes.
For more information, refer to Timezone Data Versions in the JRE Software .
Optionally available are two new features - escape analysis and compressed object pointers.
A preliminary version of the new Garbage First (G1) garbage collector is also included. JAX-WS 2.1.6 and JAXB 2.1.10 are integrated into JDK 6u14. 6u14 contains the following updates to Java Visual VM: Click for a list of Java Visual VM bug fixes related to this release.
A workaround is to remove the insecure property (which was ignored by all previous versions of Java Web Start).
Refer to CR 6845294 This feature release does not contain any new fixes for security vulnerabilities to its previous release, Java SE 6 Update 13.
Furthermore, the SCIFIO library (what Image J2 uses for data I/O) supports opening such images on-demand as "cell images" such that blocks are read from disk as you iterate over the image.
