Why the silence about Java 7?
As of yesterday 2/19, the regular online Java update will only offer to install Java 7. If it finds any version of Java 6 on the computer, it will REMOVE IT. (see the release notes - "the update mechanism will not only install the latest version of JRE 7 but will also remove the highest version of JRE 6 on the system")
After April, Java 6 will be removed entirely from the Java Archive and will only be available via a support contract from Oracle.
Given that the problem with Norton Family and Java 7 was reported 9 months ago....
WHEN IS THIS FINALLY GOING TO BE FIXED ??????
AND WHY THE COMPLETE SILENCE ON THE ISSUE?
yg... care to comment about this?
