1.6.0_18 Seems to Have Fixed Bug

Java’s latest version, JDK 1.6.0 Update 18 [1], seems to have fixed the most frequent DrJava bug report, which Corky determined to be Sun’s problem [2] (Oracle’s problem now). We have been filing all of the bug reports as duplicates of bug 2831821″Caret updating is broken” [3].

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.
