Java update for 10.5 10.6

Apple this week released Java updates for Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard and Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. It is the first Java update for Snow Leopard, and the sixth for Leopard.

Both include a number of security fixes for the cross-platform technology, with the Leopard update being the heftier of the two, weighing in at 122MB.

The Leopard update, which requires Mac OS X 10.5.8 brings J2SE 5.0 to 1.5.0_22 and Java SE 6 to 1.6.0_17; J2SE 1.4.2 is disabled by default in this update, as it’s no longer being updated. The 78MB Snow Leopard update brings Java SE 6 to 1.6.0_17 as well, and requires Mac OS X 10.6.2.

The two updates also share a fix for a loophole in which an expired certificate for an applet could be regarded as valid.

Now, you can update your Java via Apple’s Support downloads page or in Software Update.
