For all FreeBSD Java information, please checkout the WWW page.

A new release has been made to fix a couple bugs in the old release.
These include the older 'UDP broadcast' bug that was patched in the old
release, and a new bug that involved floating point calculations on
multi-threaded appliations.  In particular, the floating point bug is
especially insedious, and has existed in all FreeBSD JDK's since 1.1.6.

Please updates to the most recent version, especially if you're doing
*ANY* FPU work, as the old version would product bogus results in
certain cases.
