1.6.0_18 Seems to Have Fixed Bug

Java’s latest version, JDK 1.6.0 Update 18, seems to have fixed the most frequent DrJava bug report, which Corky determined to be Sun’s problem (Oracle’s problem now). We have been filing all of the bug reports as duplicates of bug 2831821″Caret updating is broken”.

So far, there hasn’t been a single bug report describing the same symptoms that used 1.6.0_18. Here are links to SourceForge tracker searches:

That covers all 35 duplicate bug reports we have received.

It’s difficult to definitively check that a bug that only happened sporadically has indeed been fixed, and fixed by someone else without any involvement by us, but I think I’ll close the bug report.
