136MB seems rather large for a Java update. Surprised

I just started the download. I could go for a cup of Java to keep me awake. If I should fall asleep, wake me up when SquirrelFish Extreme goes wide. Smile

I've updated my G4 mini and my iBook and haven't noticed anything weird yet. I agree though, this is a rather large update for just Java.

Does it require a restart? I'm on one of my uptime kicks.

Apple usually puts that info in the Software Update release notes now. I mean when it comes to restarting.
