I've updated mine and in the about box it still shows the old version:

build 1.7.0_05-b05

Uninstalled and reinstalled three times and the about box still shows incorrect. It should be showing a build version of "u5"

Anyone else seeing this?

That sure looks like the correct version you have there to me, GuruGuy.
I have the same thing. If you look to the left of that, it also says:
"Version 7 Update 5"


And of course, you could always go to a test page such as this one to verify:
»www.java.com/en/download/testjava.jsp

From the other thread where you also posted the same thing:

The build version has nothing to do with the "update" version. 1.7.0_05-b05 absolutely IS the latest update. "1.7.0" is Java SE 7, "_05" is u5.

Straight from the authoritative site ( »www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/···274.html ):

The full version string for this update release is 1.7.0_05-b05 (where "b" means "build") and the version number is 7u5.

Also noted in the other thread, this has been fixed here too.

For some reason the forum editor attached the closing parenthesis and colon to the url - simply take these off the end of the url after you get the '404' and refresh, or click on the link in the updated post above.

Which version would one recommend? I've been using J6 for quite awhile. And I think LibreOffice had a problem w/ an early version of J7.

I stayed with JRE v6 for quite a while and am now using JRE 7 Update 5. LibreOffice now recognizes JRE v7. As v6 is only going to be supported for a few more months it's probably a good idea to upgrade to the newest version.

I've been using JRE 7 for quite a while. (And Update 5 now, as noted). No problems at all. Then again, I don't generally have a need for java too often. But when I do , I'll go with the very latest version, unless I have a reason to do otherwise.
Can't help it. I always need the latest and newest version. Heck, even if it doesn't work sometimes, I still need it.
Man, sometimes it sucks being me.
