Release Notes: Up to 17 security vulnerabilities, all of them remotely exploitable without authentication, were resolved.
Release Notes: Performance and stability were improved. Java BigDecimal performance was improved. Olson time zone data was updated to version 2011b. HotSpot VM version 20 is now included. Many minor bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: Several security vulnerabilities and other bugs were fixed. Root certificates were added and updated.
Release Notes: Several new system configurations, including the Google Chrome browser, are now officially supported. Support for customized loading progress indicators was implemented. Java Hotspot VM 17.0 is now included, along with its Garbage First (G1) garbage collector. A Drag'N'Drop crash and several other minor bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: This release attempts to fix a security vulnerability where insufficient URL filtering in Java Web Start could potentially allow remote code execution. Furthermore, a Java Network Launch Protocol (JNLP) file now requires a codebase parameter.
Release Notes: 26 security issues were resolved, among them buffer overflows in the Runtime Environment (JRE), in ImageIO, in Java 2D, in Web Start, in the browser plugin, in sound support, and in the Hotspot Server. Seven new root certificates were added, three were removed, and five root certificates were replaced with stronger signature algorithms from VeriSign, Thawte, and GeoTrust. A warning is now raised when encountering mixed signed and unsigned code. An interim solution for the Transport Layer Security (TLS) renegotiation issue was made. Several other minor bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: Many improvements and bugfixes were made.
Release Notes: Several security vulnerabilities, reported as Sun Alerts 269868, 269869, 269870, 270474, 270475, and 270476, were fixed. Among these are buffer and integer overflows which could lead to privilege escalations. An issue in the JRE Deployment Toolkit could allow remote code execution. Digital signatures could be forged through a weakness in HMAC digests. Several other bugs were fixed. Furthermore, two new root certificates were added. Olson time zone data was updated to version 2007k.
Release Notes: Several security vulnerabilities were resolved, such as potential system access by untrusted applets, and integer overflows in image processing and in Unpack200. Several new root certificates were added. Olson time zone data was updated to version 2009i. JNLPAppletLauncher was added to the blacklist. Many other minor bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: Support for blacklisting signed jar files was added. An experimental optional improvement for TreeMap Iteration was introduced. The Java HotSpot VM was updated to version 14, bringing increased performance through the optimizing compiler, more efficient SoftReference processing, and improvements to Parallel Compacting garbage collection. Support was added for several system configurations. Service Tag support was added. Many bugs were fixed, including several crashes and memory leaks.
