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.
For more information you can have a look at the bug tracker of Java.
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.
