Apple releases Java updates for Lion, Snow Leopard

We do hope you're ready for another round of delicious Java updates, because Apple has just whipped up a batch for its Snow Leopard and Lion users.

Java for Mac OS X 10.7 Update 1, released Tuesday, updates the software to version 1.6.0_29, and offers Mac OS X Lion users improved reliability, security, and compatibility.

For Snow Leopard users running 10.6.8, Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 6 is the update to turn to. It also updates Java SE 6 to 1.6.0_29, and delivers similar improvements to that of the Lion version.

What those improvements actually bring in terms of security is still unknown; when the information is available, however, Apple will most likely post it to its security updates page.

You can download these updates via Software Update on your Mac and Apple's Support Downloads website.
