About Java for OS X 2013-004

Java for OS X 2013-004 delivers improved security, reliability, and compatibility for Java SE 6.

Java for OS X 2013-004 supersedes all previous versions of Java for OS X.

This update corrects an issue with Java applications failing to draw or respond to user input.

This release updates the Apple-provided system Java SE 6 to version 1.6.0_51 and is for OS X versions 10.7 or later.

This update uninstalls the Apple-provided Java applet plug-in from all web browsers. To use applets on a web page, click on the region labeled "Missing plug-in" to go download the latest version of the Java applet plug-in from Oracle.

This update also removes the Java Preferences application, which is no longer required to configure applet settings.
