Java SE 7 Update 6 introduces a JDK for Linux on ARM v6 and v7 to address “general purpose” ARM systems, such as those used for the emerging micro-server ARM market, and for development platforms such as Raspberry Pi. This new JDK for Linux on ARM is made available under the Oracle Binary Code License and is available for download at no cost for development and production use on general-purpose platforms.
Java Access Bridge is now included by default in Java SE 7 Update 6 on Windows to provide direct communication with assistive technology applications.
Starting with this release, JavaFX is now fully integrated into Oracle’s Java SE implementation, helping to ensure that JavaFX runtime libraries are present on millions of desktops worldwide.
Java SE 7 Update 6 is fully supported and recommended for use with Oracle Fusion Middleware.
The OpenJDK Community continues to host the development of the reference implementation of Java SE 8. Weekly developer preview builds of JDK 8 continue to be available from jdk8.java.net.
