What the heck is going on?
Is the Java Update that was put out last month for Windows and this past week for Leopard and Snow Leopard not a security issue for Tiger users, or did Apple decide to not bother making sure those who still are stuck using Tiger wouldn’t be safe??!??
This is one of two reasons why I hate that Apple does the Java updates for Mac OS X instead of letting Java do it like it does for Windows.
First reason is they are always late. Second reason, when Apple doesn’t want to update Java for Tiger, like they did for Panther, etc., they just stop updating it.
If it were left up to SUN Java to update it we would have gotten it when they released the Windows versions instead of getting this when you go to Apple site with Mac OS:
Or is Tiger (and earlier versions) the only OSes on the planet that don’t need this security update?! Tiger hasn’t had a security update for Java since June 2009: Java for Mac OS X 10.4, Release 9
