Java Update

Slackware-Current goes on again with two updates related to Java packages. Though it's considered Beta, Pat decided to release it and include it in Slackware-Current since it can fixed CUPS printing problem that occurred to several users. Please note that it's still BETA, so use it on your own risk and only upgrade if you are having problems at printing via CUPS.

slackware/l/jre-6u10_beta-i586-1.tgz: Upgraded to Java(TM) 2 Platform Standard Edition Runtime Environment Version 6.0 update 10 beta. This is a BETA VERSION and may contain problems, but it may also fix an issue with CUPS printing. If this fix is important to you, it may be worth giving this package a try at your own risk. For now, -current seems like the only prudent place for this package. Hopefully we will see official 6u10 releases soon.

extra/jdk-6/jdk-6u10_beta-i586-1.tgz: Upgraded to Java(TM) 2 Platform Standard Edition Development Kit Version 6.0 update 10 beta. This is a BETA VERSION but should fix a problem with CUPS printing. See above.
