Don’t rush to upgrade Java.

Michael Horowitz at CNet News’ “Defensive Computing” blog has an article up on Java 6 Update 10, which was just released this weekend, and whether or not you should update from your current Update 7.  This is great advice — well thought out and perfectly reasonable, especially where this new version does not contain any security fixes, only new features.

Wish I’d read it before I spent all day updating my work’s computers to Rev 10, finding out it was incompatible with a tool we need to use, then having to roll everyone back.  Oh well, live and learn.  Lost most of the day to this little escapade, but the day’s almost done so I’m okay with that.

Don’t rush to upgrade Java.
