Updated java-1.6.0-openjdk packages that fix several bugs and add various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The java-1.6.0-openjdk packages provide the OpenJDK 6 Java Runtime Environment and the OpenJDK 6 Java Software Development Kit.


The java-1.6.0-openjdk packages have been upgraded to upstream IcedTea version 1.13.0, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. (BZ#983411)

Bug Fix

Previously, int[] objects allocated by instances of the com.sun.imageio.plugins.jpeg.JPEGImageWriter class were consuming extensive amounts of memory, which was consequently not released. With this update, the underlying stream processing logic has been modified to ensure correct releasing of such memory, and extensive memory consumption no longer occurs.
Users of java-1.6.0-openjdk are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs and add these enhancements. All running instances of OpenJDK Java must be restarted for the update to take effect.
