Hi :) The 6_24 was the first one that seemed to cause slow-downs in earlier versions of LibreOffice, 3.3.x and 3.4.x branches (prior to 3.4.5). More recent versions of java seem to have often caused crashes as well as slowdowns. The best version seems to have been the 6_21. That seemed to be the pinnacle for those early LOs. LibreOffice 3.5.x and 3.4.5&3.4.6 seem to prefer the newest possible versions of java, preferring ultra-latest versions such as 7_3 even before they get released. On Gnu&Linux you are considerably safer than if you were running Windows or even Mac. Mac started with unix-based security so they tend to be significantly safer but they are a proprietary system so presumably they are not able to respond so quickly to threats. I think making something proprietary introduces other potential vulnerabilities anyway even though that is contra-intuitive.
... Right... You keep promoting earlier versions of Java, I guess you've not heard what happened to Apple for not updating their Java versions: <https://support.apple.com/kb/HT5228> <<http://news.cnet.com/8301-13579_3-57410476-37/apples-security-code-of-silence-a-big-problem/>> <http://tech.fortune.cnn.com/2012/04/14/apples-flashback-fixes-three-belts-and-a-pair-of-suspenders/?iid=HP_LN> -- For unsubscribe instructions e-mail to: email@example.com Problems? http://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/mailing-lists/how-to-unsubscribe/ Posting guidelines + more: http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Netiquette List archive: http://listarchives.libreoffice.org/global/users/ All messages sent to this list will be publicly archived and cannot be deleted
