Good catch, I guess I mis-typed my passphrase on that one when running
the .sh file.

To be honest the Java6/JavaFX support were the only two 'new' things I
was certain about.  I couldn't remember the significant changes, and a
browse through the changelog/WHATSNEW suggests that this is primarily
a bug fix release and not a feature release.

I'm now back in the UK, but my PC is somewhere else (I'm using my
parents *very old* pc to send this).  Hopefuly I'll be back online
properly soon :).  Just got in today and need some time to adjust to
the cold!
