OSG 1.2.11 Update Notification

OSG 1.2.11 Update Notification

Date: July 1, 2010

Affected Components
This update affects all OSG installations.


This update replaces Java 5 with Java 6 because Java 5 is past its end of life and no longer has security updates. This affects all software in the OSG software stack that uses Java. In addition, we have updated to the latest version of Java 6, 1.6.0_20.

This release updates several software components to new versions, see the complete list below.

* Java
* Java software has been altered to use Java 6 instead of Java 5
* osg-version

Issues Fixed
The default for Java software has been altered to use the Java 6 VM. In addition, Java 6 has been updated to the latest Sun Java release which has some bug and security fixes.
