A while ago, Java notified me that a new version, Java 6 Update 13, is now available. I installed the update, then I went to Control Panel to remove the old version. When I checked, there was only Java 6 Update 13, no Update 12. Is this a new feature of Java?

I can't remember which version this began with, but yes, I read about this some time ago on Broadband DSL Reports forums. I want to say it began with JRE version, but not certain on that. They finally listened to users who asked the developers to have Java installers uninstall the old versions during the install process of a newer release so we wouldn't end up with multiples on our pc's.

But old habits are hard to break for we old folks, and I find I still manually uninstall the old version in Add/Remove before downloading and installing the new. :thumbsup:
