Oracle SunJava released an update to Java Runtime Environment (JRK). The full internal version number for this update release is 1.6.0_23-b05 (where "b" means "build"). The external version number is 6u23.
This is not a security update. The next security update is scheduled for 18 January 2011. Rather, the update contains enhancements, described as follows:
- Improved performance and stability
- Enhanced support for right-to-left languages
Although Java is not required (See Do You Need Java?), if you do have Java installed on your computer, it is advisable to install the latest update.
