[liberationtech] Not another Haystack right?

Hi Michael,

Then maybe you could recommend that people upgrade their Java to the 
latest stable version if they plan to use the product before it goes to 
C or C++ version?

I wouldn't dream of running any Java based program without using the 
latest stable (presumably safer) version. I have seen many folks still 
running *cringe* version Update 5.x!

Especially when you are talking about people's lives...

Maybe something to think about anyway...
