Earlier today Oracle released Java SE 7u40.
The most important features are:
- Java Mission Control and Java Flight Recorder (commercial features) are now available for Hotspot as well as for JRockit
- Deployment Rule Set for system administrators to control what applet can use which JRE version
- ARM V7 support for hardfloat
- Scene Builder 1.1 (separate download) for creating JavaFX GUIs.
The press release contains more information on this update.
This release does not change the security baseline so users who had the previous version of the JRE (7u25) installed will not be auto-updated to 7u40.
