One of reader shared with us that SunJava 1.5.0_09 has been released. You can get it from:

Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 5.0 Update 9
Release Notes
Test your installation

Update: As of Sun Oct 1 09:00:00 EDT 2006, neither the locally-installed, nor the on-line Java version tester seems to be aware of the 1.5.0_09 update. In one test, the on-line updated reported that 1.5_0_06 is the latest version. Also, Jim Manico reported that in his test, version 1.5_0_08 was reported as being up-to-date as well.



Perhaps the updater only detects major version changes? In this case, we saw no important security reason to rush with the 1.5_0_09 update. However, we hope that the update mechanism will work as advertised when an important security vulnerability needs to be patched.
