Java 8u60

Oracle has planned to release the update 60 of Java 8 within August and it will be the next big update.

But there will be a bug in this release, which also may affect you as a GeoMedia Smart Client user. There are two prerequisites to be one of the unlucky ones:

  • You must have a DatePicker in your workflow, which is used within GeoMedia Smart Client.
  • You must live in a TimeZone, where there is a definition of a Daylight Saving Time.

As you can also see at the entry, this bug will be fixed in Java 8u66. The release of this version is planned in October.
