Apple Posts QuickTime Java Patch

Update supports Java 1.4.1 and 1.3.1 By Dave Nagel
Apple has posted a new path for QuickTime 6.4. The release, called "QuickTime for Java Update," addresses an issue with application compatibility and is recommended by Apple for everyone using QuickTime 6.4.

According to Apple, the update offers support for Java 1.4.1 or 1.3.1 when using QuickTime 6.4. The latest version of QuickTime was released a week ago, delivering enhancements to performance for both audio and video, including improvements to DV encoding and decoding in QuickTime based applications, such as Apple's Final Cut Pro, and improved playback of both SD and HD streams. It also added Pixlet, a "studio grade" codec designed for digital filmmakers that provides compression ratios up to 25:1. Other new features included extended support for 3GPP, including native support of .3gp files and support for video, audio and text; enhanced MPEG-4 and H.263 video codecs and enhanced AAC audio codec; and an adaptive multi-rate audio codec (AMR) and a 3G Text importer and exporter.

The QuickTime for Java Update is available now as a free download through the Software Update feature in System Preferences for users of Mac OS X. For more information, visit
