    Java version 6 update 30 is now available

    The latest version of Java - version 6 update 30 just became available today.
    The red link in my signature will check what version you have installed.
    The green link will provide instructions to remove the previous version and install the new version.
    Except you will need to change the "29" to "30" as the site has not been updated yet.

    Just performed the update myself and it's good to go.

    If you have a 32 bit machine, the instructions are on the left down a ways, for 64 bit machines the right side has the instructions.

    It says to remove the old version first and mentions the instructions for doing that are towards the bottom.
    Then you just start from the top and copy and paste the commands and you should be good to go.

    Myself, I used gedit to put the file name and change the 29 to 30. Then copy/paste as needed.

    Then you may want to check out the How to in blue in my signature. It is really good for dual booting but, not just for dual booting.

    Thanks! I noticed yesterday in my email that at least for Lucid, the 6.26 version was in the repository.
    At least that was what I gathered.

    And it detects Linux and if you have a 32 or 64 bit machine as well.

    You are very welcome! I try to stay on top of Java versions at least! My little contribution.
    There are a lot of kind and knowledgeable people in this forum that share their knowledge for free just like Ubuntu is free!

    It doesn't get any better than that!
