Description jiri vanek 2015-11-20 08:50:17 UTC
The latest upstream release (1.6) contains full support for multiple jdks. With debug packages on board, keeping older s-s-j in rhel 7 is quite useless.

Comment 7 jiri vanek 2016-09-05 13:43:27 UTC
a) its 1.7 now
b) there is no description what was actually fixed...
 * multiple installs
 * -debug
 * jdk9

As alot of people is not aware of multiple installs and debug subpackages at all, would benice to advertise them a bit.
