    Features of Java SE 7
    Here is a brief summary of the enhancements included with the Java SE 7 release:
    • Improved performance, stability and security. <---
    • Enhancements in the Java Plug-in for Rich Internet Applications development and deployment.
    • Java Programming language enhancements that enable developers with ease of writing and optimizing the Java code.
    • Enhancements in the Java Virtual machine to support Non-Java languages.

    Sounds like everyone should be on 7. :D

    Updated, thanks!

    And yay the installer doesn't crash with DEP always on! Awesome :D

    EDIT: Though it's quite possible we had nothing to worry about if running EMET.
