Oracle has released an update to the Java SDK and Java Runtime Environment raising the version of both to 6 Update 21. The official download site over at the Java website lists Java 6 Update 20 as the latest version even though update 21 has been released, this is likely going to change in the near future to reflect the changes and provide download access to all visitors directly from the official download page.
But Ghacks readers know more, downloads for the Java Runtime Environment and Java SDK are already enabled in the Sun Download Center.
Users who work with the JRE can download the latest version from this download center page. The software is available for Windows, Linux and Solaris.

The Java Developer Toolkit has also been updated and can be downloaded from this page instead. It raises the version to 6 Update 21 as well and is available for the same platforms.

Among the new features is support for additional system configurations including Google Chrome 4, performance improvements in Java VisualVM and at least one security fix. Developers and interested users can take a closer look at all the bugfixes of Java 6 Update 21 on this web page.
The security issue that has been fixed in this update makes it a recommended update for every user who has Java installed on a computer system.
