Poll: Java SE 6u10: Consumer Release of the Consumer JRE
By dannycoward on Nov 17, 2008
Dad's Java is always a podcast worth listening to, not least
the Uber-geeks turned marketing
department usually let something juicy slip,
like the release
date for JavaFX.
Or that the latest Java Runtime Environment (technically, Java SE 6u11, a bugfix release of Java SE 6u10, which has been also known in the Planetarium is the 'Consumer JRE') will go into the Auto-Update mechanism on December 2nd too.
Auto-Update is the mechanism by which the Java runtime gets updated on the PC desktop. Better known as the bubble-pop-up-reminder-with-download-link-thingy, its the way most consumers stay up to date with the latest version.
So it will be the Consumer Release of the Consumer JRE !
For last year's Java Runtime download numbers, take a look here (jump to the 9.30 mark...).
How many downloads do you think there will be of the JRE in the first 30 days of its Consumer Release ?
