There is a new Update for MAC OS X:
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1856

This release does not change the default version of Java. This release is only for Mac OS X 10.5.2 and later, and should not be installed on earlier versions of Mac OS X. This release is for 64-bit, Intel-based Macs only and cannot run on PowerPC-based or 32-bit Intel-based Macs.



I am wondering if I could install this update on my MAC. My OS X Version is 10.4. Usually whenever there�s a new update, the MAC Software Update automatically runs. But for this one, it did not run automatically. I wonder why

And,

This release is only for Mac OS X 10.5.2 and later, and should not be installed on earlier versions of Mac OS X


� Does this mean that I cannot use this update to my MAC?

How can I run Java 6 on my MAC? Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you very much!

Sorry, but you will not be able to run it. Java 6, as it says, requires Leopard and 64-bit processor.

Thank you very much, Mr. Bear.

I've been listing down reasons for an upgrade. So maybe this is gonna be a main one. :roll:
