Canonical Removes Java from Ubuntu on February 16

Jan 18, 2012, 18:01 (0 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to An Anonymous Reader for this link. ]

"As announced last month, Canonical is preparing to remove the Sun JDK (Java Development Kit) packages from the software repositories, starting with February 16th, 2012, affecting Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, Ubuntu 10.10 and Ubuntu 11.04.

"Users should not be worried, as Canonical will NOT remove the Java packages from their systems! They will be removed ONLY from the software repository and no future updates will be applied to them.

"However, for new installations, the Sun JDK packages will no longer be available, as they will be removed from the partner archive."
