Java 7 Update 51 for OS X 10.7.3 and Later:
[Update: Oracle released Java 7 Update 65 on May 28th, 2014.]
(I don't use java but posting as a FYI to those that do need/use it.) Oracle's Java 7 dev page (and has Java 7 Update 51 for OS X 10.7.3 or later (only 64-bit JVM is certified). Here's the release notes and Oracle's Java for Mac FAQ. (They also link to doc on New security requirements for RIAs.) If you have already installed Java 7, you can update via System Preferences ->Java Control panel.
   Java updates typically have important security patches but can break some software, so you may want to check with the dev/vendor of any java based software you depend on before updating and check for feedback. (Apple's OS X forums and/or forums for any java software you use. Oracle also has Java Developer forums. And of course always have a Backup.)
(I've not seen an update to Java 6 since Oct 15, 2013's updates for OS X 10.6 and 10.7/10.8.)
