Java SE 6u10: Some things you may not know
By dannycoward on Oct 29, 2008
While we haven't added all the numbers up yet, the manual downloads for Java SE 6u10 are looking very nice: a little over 3 million in the first week. And of course, that number will jump up in a big way when it gets published through the Java Update mechanism, which is how most ordinary users will get it. In an average month there are 40-50 million auto-update downloads, though it can be much higher.
And many people have been talking about the release, as you know.
But did you know that this release includes version 11 of the Hotspot VM which includes some performance improvements to the server compiler. No wonder people are using it to run Glassfish.
