Looking at today's Java update from Apple, I think it is being very specific about which version of the OS they will continue to release new versions of Java for. So:
  • 10.5 (Leopard) - still supported
  • 10.6 r 3 (Snow Leopard (older release)) - deprecated
  • 10.6 r 4 (Snow Leopard (current release)) - still supported
  • 10.7 (Lion) - will be supported

  • So this only appears to be an issue for people who are running Snow Leopard that have not been applying updates.

    This is not something to hope for.

    Not good news. I could still do my Java stuff under Linux or even (ugh) Windows on VMWare Fusion, but I'd rather stick with OSX.

    We are safe
    Apple did the right thing.
     
    It's exactly the same and completely different as this tiny ad:
