Java Security Update

Sun has released a new version of Java (6u15).
Thanks go out to TommyB and DavidF who wrote in to tell us of the new java update.

This release addresses 7 SUN security alerts and a ton of bugs.

Of special note for those of you who compile things from scratch is the Garbage Collector. SUN advises people to use "-XX:+UseParallelGC" to ensure debugging breakpoints are reliable.
