With today's report, by my count, 6u10 JRE and JDK have had over 1M combined downloads. We are pretty happy, and proud, about that.
This number includes all the Online and Offline installs of the JRE and JDK. Each week there are still some downloads of 'older' builds that I have chose to ignore, in order to keep things 'simple'. Also, we only really started to keep track of the downloads in March, the first builds of 6u10 were released in September: https://jdk6.dev.java.net/6u10ea.html , so the overall download number may actually be a bit higher, but we will go with what we have :)
The, majority, of feedback that we have received to date has been positive about the release. Yes, there are still more things to address. We are pleased with the new plugin, it is solving many problems, and with such a massive rewrite, the compatibility has been fantastic, there have really only been a few number of regressions reported.
When the RC is released there will be a survey, similar to the survey you may have seen a the time of the Beta release. I urge you to fill out the survey. In the mean time, if you find a bug let us know, http://bugreport.sun.com , or you can post here to the forums.
That is about it...... Thanks for the downloads, and the feedback. We appreciate it.
