  • Java Mission Control 5.4: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/8u20-relnotes-2257729.html#jmc-54

  • The Medium security level has been removed. Now only High and Very High levels are available.
  • Applets that do not conform with the latest security practices can still be authorized to run by including the sites that host them to the Exception Site List.

  • The minimum version of Java required for Java Plugin and Java Webstart is now Java 5. Applets that do not run in Java 5 or later must be ported to a later version of Java to continue to function. Applets written for earlier versions but able to run in at least Java 5 will continue to work.
  • UsageTracker output formatting has been changed to use quoting, to avoid confusion in the log. This may require changes to the way such information is read. The feature can be configured to behave as in previous versions, although the new format is recommended.
  • javafxpackager has been renamed to javapackager
  • bug fixes
