Very soon, if not already you will see that build 20, of 6u10, is now available. How can that be? We were just on on build 14!

Yes, there is a gap. Build numbers 14-19 were set aside for 6u10 beta candidates. Allowing us to rebuild, in order to fix specific issues that needed to be fixed before the beta could be released. While the beta work and testing was going on, we were still working on other 6u10 issues and that work was going into build 20.

Where are builds 15-19 you may ask? They never existed. The numbers have been skipped and will not be used. So there is nothing you missed out on. The latest fixes are in build 20. The next build will be 21, then 22 and so on.

sorry if this has caused any confusion,
Roger

Due to a minor delay, build 20 was held up. We have released build 20 and 21 at the same.
