Apple releases Java 1.4.2 Update, includes Java 1.4.2 Plug-In

Apple has released Java 1.4.2 Update, now available from Software Update, which improves stability, memory usage, and correctness. Java 1.4.2 Update requires Mac OS X v10.3.3 or later.

With the Java 1.4.2 Plug-In, Safari supports websites that use LiveConnect for communication between JavaScript and Java applets, letting you work with more Java-based websites than ever before on the Mac.

  1. I dunno, I think this one did my dual USB G3 iBook in…It is hanging up right before it gets to the login screen…If anyone can help me out or know what might happened I would really appreciate it, I am really not trying to do a full reinstall right now…..THANKS APPLE. 🙁

  2. Has anyone tested the Java update with Safari 1.2.2, and with Safari 1.2.3, the latter of which you will have if you have updated to Panther 10.3.5?

    Where would one test online Java apps?
