Java Updates

Final version of JRE and JDK has been released by Sun Microsystem, so without any ADO, Pat has just included them in -Current because it can fix the printing problem caused by previous version. The changelog says that both version is compatible for Slackware 12.1 and earlier release.

Here's the latest -Current changelog:
Sat Jul 19 17:09:00 CDT 2008
l/jre-6u7-i586-1.tgz: Switched to Java(TM) 2 Platform Standard Edition Runtime Environment Version 6.0 update 7. This non-beta stable release should fix the printing issues with CUPS in the previous stable Java(TM) release.

extra/jdk-6/jdk-6u7-i586-1.tgz: Switched to Java(TM) 2 Platform Standard Edition Development Kit Version 6.0 update 7.
Both of these Java(TM) packages are suitable for use on Slackware 12.1 and probably on earlier releases as well.
