Netx (Network eXecute) is a JNLP (Java Network Launching Protocol) client that can also be used as a component to provide applications with JNLP features and support. It downloads code over a network, caches it, and runs it in a secure sandbox environment. It operates in a manner similar to Web Start, but is smaller, faster, and has no splash screens.

Release Notes: Many updates were made to caching, the control of poorly-behaved applications, and threading.
