→ Oracle Releases Java for Mac

Oracle announced on Tuesday that it will start offering direct downloads and auto-updates to Java on OS X beginning with the release of Java Standard Edition 7 Update 6.

I used to spend my days working away at Java development. Very rarely did I run into an issue where the Apple version of Java caused me trouble. Still, the amount of time between updates was always concerning. Hopefully this release makes things easier for Java developers everywhere.
