Java Update Deletes Old Versions

Susan Hall

Sun Microsystems has released a new update to its Java platform known as Java Platform Standard Edition 6 Update 10 to improve its performance on desktop computers, reports eWEEK.


The Washington Post's Brian Krebs, who's not a fan of Java, said the new version contains no new security fixes. It does, however, remove older, insecure versions that had been collecting on users' computers at around 100MB each. And the company has pledged that future versions will use this same "patch in place" capability.


Meanwhile, CNET News' Michael Horowitz discusses whether you need this update at all.
