It sure does seems like Oracle is doing a one last farewell tour for Java SE 6 :lol: This is at least 3 times they have promised the end, so we should start a pool on this. :yes:

Back in Post #45 ...

Important note from the Oracle-Sun website ...

"This is the last public release of Java 6. No new public updates of Java 6 will be available after February 2013."

Just downloaded these packages ...

jre-6u41-windows-i586.exe ... Webpage ... Direct Download ( for now )

jre-6u41-windows-x64.exe .... Webpage ... Direct Download ( maybe! )

jre-7u15-windows-i586.exe ... Webpage ... Direct Download ( for now )

jre-7u15-windows-x64.exe .... Webpage ... Direct Download ( maybe! )

Note: There does not seem to have been a jre-6u40.

Note: There does not seem to have been a jre-7u14.

Well that didn't last long ...

Important note from the Oracle-Sun website ...

"This is the last public release of Java 6. No new public updates of Java 6 will be available after February 2013."

So much for that announcement. That was supposedly the final version ever released for Java 6 ( JRE 6 release 41 ), but as noted by egrabrych, it was quickly superceded.

Just downloaded these files ...

jre-6u43-windows-i586.exe ... Webpage ... Direct Download ( for now )

jre-6u43-windows-x64.exe .... Webpage

jre-7u17-windows-i586.exe ... Webpage ... Direct Download ( for now )

jre-7u17-windows-x64.exe .... Webpage

Note: Correct me If I'm wrong but there does not seem to have been a jre-6u42.

Note: Correct me If I'm wrong but there does not seem to have been a jre-7u16.

Using the following two links I went straight to the latest direct download page for both 6 and 7 ...

These are the downloaded files ...

  • 2013-04-20 ... 23:32 ... 17,090,992 ... jre-6u45-windows-i586.exe
    2013-04-20 ... 23:32 ... 17,355,184 ... jre-6u45-windows-x64.exe
    2013-04-20 ... 23:34 ... 31,666,592 ... jre-7u21-windows-i586.exe
    2013-04-20 ... 23:35 ... 33,119,648 ... jre-7u21-windows-x64.exe

Note: There does not seem to have been a jre-6u44.

Note: There does not seem to have been a jre-7u18 or 19 or 20.

Curiously there is a typo on that page for Java 6 ...

... but as you can see from the sizes I listed above, the file is fine.

Yeah, they've even been keeping version 1.5 up-to-date, but only for paying customers : http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/documentation/overview-137139.html

That's what's been promised to happen to version 1.6, hopefully they won't do this until all the major security holes are plugged.

Can you just imagine them stating that 'all the holes are plugged'! :lol: With all the specific Java exploits this year, so bad that at one point they suggested disabling it completely, they are gonna regret that "This is the last release ..." business.

If we start a pool, I'll have to go with jre-6u60 or jre-6u70. :lol:
