version 1.2.3 - 30 May 2012

Creating the links to the locally installed Open Database Connectivity drivers could fail on 64 bit systems, causing the execution of the script to abort prematurely.

version 1.2.2 - 17 May 2012

Oracle has woken up, so - as expected - the script needed a (small) fix...

version 1.2.1 - 10 May 2012

Linking of the .systemPrefs directory was flawed.
Some messages cleaned up as the Java 7 package is a tarball and not an executable (binary).
Preparation for when/if Oracle decides to fix the text on the download page at java.com (which will probably make the script fail...).

version 1.2.0 - 8 May 2012

Java 6 is no longer available at java.com, so switched to Java 7 (7u4). Both executable file (.bin) and tarball (.tar.gz) are supported.

New release by Oracle (6u32).

version 1.1.2 - 22 January 2012

version 1.1.1 - 21 January 2012

Two bugs fixed:

version 1.1.0 - 15 January 2012

Some bug fixes and improvements:

version 1.0.0 - 19 December 2011

This version contains a bug which only shows up if you have already installed the Runtime Environment and then want to install a newer version of it (manually). To work around this you should always use sudo update-sun-jre -v remove first to remove the installed version. After that, you can pick up the new one without any problems.
This is only required for the manual installation!
