Java 1.4.1 Update

Send Article to a Friend

Java 1.4.1 Update -- Late this afternoon, Apple released Java 1.4.1, a significant update to the Java environment on the Mac. According to Apple, Java support in Safari and other Web browsers that support the Java Internet Plug-in has been improved, and applications written in Java now better take advantage of the Aqua interface and Quartz Extreme rendering capabilities in Mac OS X. This release also marks parity with the latest release of Sun's Java, with built-in support for XML-based Web services and better stability. Java applications can implement Jaguar's Universal Access features, including the capability to control Java applications with AppleScript using Apple's new UI Scripting technology (see Matt Neuburg's article "Scripting the Unscriptable in Mac OS X" later in this issue). Java 1.4.1 is a 26.1 MB download. [JLC]
