|Apple/products related News/Articles/Tips/Software Updates:
Just a FYI/Follow-Up to a news post here last week on a Java update from Oracle (ref: Oracle Press Release) which I noted then didn't have an OS X download posted yet. I checked today and the Java.com D/L page now has a download (and Mac FAQ w/install and uninstall info) of their latest Java update for OS X 10.7.3 and later.
(IMO unless you really -need- Java, I'd not install it. I realize some do need Java support for work or specific software/services, but many do not.)
I'm not using it personally, but if any reader installs the update, let me know if you see any specific pros/cons/problems. (And always have a current Backup just in case.)
FYI/Update on Java 7 Security: An August 27th article Attackers Pounce on Zero-Day Java Exploit notes the vulnerability is said to affect Java 7 (1.7) Update 0 to 6, but not Java 6 and older.
