Java Runtime Environment 7 Update 40 released

Java software allows you to run applications called "applets" that are written in the Java programming language. These applets allow you to have a much richer experience online than simply interacting with static HTML pages.

Java Plug-in technology, included as part of the Java  Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (JRE), establishes a connection between popular browsers and the Java platform. Java allows applications to be downloaded over a network and run within a guarded sandbox. Security restrictions are easily imposed on the sandbox. Many cross platform applications also require Java to operate properly.

It was announced a while back that they were changing how they number releases:

- Limited Update releases will be numbered in multiples of 20.
- We intend for Critical Patch Updates to continue to use odd numbers. The numbers will be calculated by adding multiples of five to the prior Limited Update and when needed adding one to keep the resulting number odd.

So many people hate on Java but I love it and to Oracle's credit it is getting better and better. With IntelliJ IDEA I prefer working with Java than I do .NET now.

Is it 1995 again, and no one told me?
