It's May 6th 2014. Java 8 was released on 18th March and 8u5 was released on 15th April.
So why when I go to download the latest JRE to at https://www.java.com/en/download/ does it offer me 7u55?
I guess I don't fully understand the release cycle, but I can't find anyone who can tell me what's going on.
OR (like I say) I don't understand the release cycle and Java 8 isn't actually released for end users. Or is it? If not then when will it be?
Thanks in anticipation.
