IcedTea-Web has many bugfixes new features including:

    Common:
        Mercurial revision detection (when building) is now more reliable
        Apps calling loadClass get a proper a ClassNotFoundException if class is not found, rather than a null value
        Applets and JNLP apps using SSL/TLS now function correctly

    Web Start implementation (javaws):
        The Web Start implementation can now use proxy settings from Firefox
        Web Start applications now use the correct default browser set by the user
        Closing javaws -about no longer throws exceptions
        Cache files are removed properly

    Plug-in:
        Applets from the same page use the same classloader (e.g. www.uk.map24.com)
        NetDania banking application now works
        Sound now works with runescape.com
        Firefox 4 and above no longer freeze if the applet calls showDocument()
        Firefox  and chromium stability has been vastly improved with a rewrite of the plug-in threading model
