USPTO and Java v8 update 111 build 14
On my Macintosh, I received a notice that there is an updated version of Java v8 update 111 build 14 (released on October 18).
I called the US Patent Electronic Business Center (EBC), and talked to Agent 44. She said that they have not yet tested the update, and that she suggested holding off on the update for a few days. A colleague mentioned that the EBC has approved this release of Java.
