Advisory: RHBA-2013:1741-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2013-11-20
Last updated on: 2013-11-20
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6)

Details

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)

This update also fixes the following bug:

* 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. (BZ#976897)

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.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
