But no announcement on Java.net or java.sun.com.
6u10 is now available on http://java.com also. Point your users to java.com if they don't have the latest Java.
Currently, we only provide them with 32bit JRE for Windows which includes Plug-In. So they don't have to pick whether they need 32-bit or 64-bit.
Just a note: http://java.com is designed to be a more consumer-oriented site with self help pages of some simple issues of Java.
I have noticed an increased use of 1.6.0_07 but very little use of 6U10 fcs from my users. Seems 1.6.0_05 and lower have dropped off the map for me.
Hopefully the web start and other ways to download 6U10 are working.
The auto-update hasn't been set to update to 6u10+ yet. So unless a user decides to go to java.com and download 6u10, they'll remain on 1.6.0_07. 6u7 is a security release, 6u10 is not. Anyone still using 1.6.0_05 as their default JRE has probably switched off auto update (I wouldn't recommend doing that!). At some point soon, auto-update will be set to 6u10 or later - so make sure your applets and WebStart applications work well with it now!
Thanks tackline that explains alot.
In regards to pointing consumers to download manually I have discovered that is not a very good idea. Most consumers have little desire to download something manually if they can avoid it. I use javadeploy with my app and it works great and satifies my needs quite well. I was just pointing out the trend in jre's I am seeing to help out Sun.
I have done testing with 6U10 fcs and have no problems so far.
Maybe it takes them much time to lead it in the heap :D
I really hope it has something good
The Amazing JAVA
We provide a few applets and we've tested all under JRE 1.6.0_10 and everything works fine until now. Our applets implement various Java APIs such as upload over HTTP, FTP, scale image, preview image, encrypt data and more: http://www.jfileupload.com (follow demonstration if you want to see them).
With 1.6.0_10, they load fast and we're able to pass heap size as parameter. It really helps to scale large images.
Thanks for the good work.
What's the proper way to install this in linux (I'm using ubuntu).
Ubuntu intrepid lists that it has java 6 update 10, but new style applets (jnlp applets, draggable applets) don't work. For example these:
I see from your new thread that you got it figured out. Thanks for posting your solution!
Also note that even though dragging the applet out of the browser will work, the desktop icon that it creates has a bug that makes it non-functional. There is a thread about that in the plugin forum here on java.net.
Updated to account for the thread that lists the solution.

Maybe the want it to happen quietly, looking if there are still problematic bugs left?
Worked great for me and I have more java and native code than most anyone. My startup after loading once on the client side was 4 seconds on a dual core 2.66 GHz 2GB DDR2 Intel CPU. Not sure what my disk type is.
