USPTO and Java v8 update 65 build 17
On my Macintosh, I received a notice that there is an updated version of Java.
I called the US Patent Electronic Business Center on October 21st, and the representative I spoke to said that this version has NOT been tested with their systems, and that the representative suggested delaying the upgrade. On October 27th, the representative (Agent 37) said that the update still has not yet been tested for Mac or PC, but that some users have reported success with the update.
updated on 10/27 to add information from the representative
