New release JDK 1.6.0_13 is out. Download at:

the release note is quite poor:

I see a dozen additions and bug fixes. What does poor mean in this

For a whole JDK release, that's pretty minor. It seems it's a simple way
to distribute a certificate store update, not much else. One could
wonder if that is enough to download the thing; all over the world
releasing a new JDK will mean a very large number of GB in downloads
only. And I won't download it because it would cost me too much time.

     Are you saying that bug fixes should not be distributed
until there's a big pile of them? "Maarten, we've fixed the
bug that breaks your code, but we're not going to release the
fix until we've got three or four dozen other fixes to keep
it company. Try to be patient."
