I just posted a one-liner on the latest Java Update.  There is a hefty list of security vulnerabilities fixed, but I figured folks could dig into if they were interested, and a one liner would do.

However, the real story, for me at least, is that Oracle is now on a quarterly update schedule, starting with this version.  Going forward, expect regular updates to be released on the Tuesday closest to the 17th day of January, April, July and October. The next four dates are:

    14 January 2014
    15 April 2014
    15 July 2014
    14 October 2014

Not sure if this is good or not, I'd rather see more frequent updates, but that's the schedule.

The release notes for this version (Windows, Linux, Mac and Solaris) are here: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/7u45-relnotes-2016950.html
