Due to security concerns, the UTF-8 charset implementation in the JRE has been updated to handle the non-shortest form of UTF-8 byte sequences, and this introduces an incompatibility from previous releases. For example, the byte sequence of 0xc0 0xaf for U+002f, which has the shortest form of 0x2f, is a malformed input to the decoding operation. More details regarding the Non-shortest form of UTF-8 can be found at:
Note that fonts for Asian locales currently are not supported. Refer to 6767175 for details.
As of JDK 6u10, patch-in-place installation is the default, and the JRE installs itself in a directory called
jre6. Previously, it would have installed itself in a directory called
jre1.6.0_10. That is, by default, the
jre6 directory is patched with the updated version.
You can chose to statically install a JRE (for example, either 6u10 or 6u11) by means of the installer interface.
