Apple has updated the Java software used in Mac OS X.

This update delivers improvements for text, mouse, and printing components in the Java 1.3.1 implementation for Mac OS X, and improves its overall stability and compatibility.

The implementation of text components has been completely updated, resolving a number of issues found in the use of TextAreas and TextFields.

Mouse behaviour is improved, especially for mouse events that involve dragging in complex applications.

Many printing issues have been resolved, including multi-page printing and clipping issues.

The Java update requires Mac OS X version 10.1.3 or later.

The 21MB update is available now through Mac OS X's Software Update.
