Java Embedding Plugin 0.8.0, first public release

years on its Mac OS X Java Virtual Machine,
licensed from Sun. But up until now you've had to
use Safari to see any of this. The Java Embedding

which (together with the JEP) allows recent
versions of Mozilla, Firefox and Camino to use
Java 1.4.1 and 1.4.2 on Mac OS X. But in
principle any web browser could use one of the
Java Embedding Plugin's two APIs to add support
for Java 1.4.X.... read more
