QA:Camino 1.6.x, Mac OS X 10.6, and Java
The Java Embedding Plugin (which provides Java support in Camino) included in Camino 1.6.x is incompatible with Java on Mac OS X 10.6 “Snow Leopard” and will cause Camino to crash when visiting any pages using Java applets. While a compatible version of the Java Embedding Plugin exists, that version will not run on Mac OS X 10.3.9, which Camino 1.6.x supports. As a result of these incompatibilities, Camino 1.6.10 and later will disable Java on Mac OS X 10.6.
Users of Camino 1.6.x who need Java support on Mac OS X 10.6 and who do not wish to upgrade to Camino 2.0 Beta 4 will need to perform the following steps to obtain a compatible version of the Java Embedding Plugin and re-enable Java. Note: the following steps must be performed again with each new Camino 1.6.x release.
- Quit Camino 1.6.10 or later.
- Replace the Java Embedding Plugin inside of the Camino application with version 0.9.7.2 or later of the Java Embedding Plugin.
- The Install JEP for 10.6 AppleScript application can perform this step automatically.
- Restart Camino.
Java will now be operational until the next version of Camino 1.6.x is released, at which point users will need to perform these steps again.
