I have downloaded Java 6 Update 14 installed on my PC. Previously I had Java 6 Update 7 installed. I would like to know that what are these updates and what features are added in every update? Do new API's come in with every update?

Thanks!

But could you please explain me the Security Baseline part. I did not understand that table!


Also could you please tell me what's Olson Data?

There's a link on the release notes page that explains the security baseline and its use in detail: http://java.sun.com/javase/6/webnotes/family-clsid.html
As for the Olson data, it's simply a compilation of information about the world's time zones, like uniform zone names, UTC offsets, DST applicability etc.
Nothing a typical Java developer need be concerned about; that is about the baseline and timezone db versions.
