Description :
The IcedTea-Web project provides a Java web browser plugin, an implementation
of Java Web Start (originally based on the Netx project) and a settings tool to
manage deployment settings for the aforementioned plugin and Web Start

Update Information:

This update upgrades IcedTea-Web to 1.1.1.

IcedTea-Web has many bugfixes new features including:

        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

        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


This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update icedtea-web' at the command line.
