Re: Re: Why use Java in Mathematica?


Would you still object to paclet delivery of bug fixes if the user had a 
choice of whether to accept the paclets?  Or at least if the delivery 
were "noisy" rather than quiet?

And isn't getting bug fixes quickly often more desirable than waiting 
for a new, numbered release?
