    Caveats:

    Java 1.4.2 breaks acqlite 0.23
    (author posted 0.23b to allow it to run)
    Safari 1.2 won't run the current version of PithHelmit (0.72)
    (temporary fix to Info.plist posted on VersionTracker forum)

    Huh. Thus far no instability and Safari seems to cope with
    Javascript-heavy Web sites better.

    Some problems witht he updates are discussed in today's macfxit.com
    article. Briefly, they recommend installing the standalone rather than
    installing via software update.

    I ignore such advice unless the giver has a good reason.

    One likely good reason might be letting someone else discover any bugs
    that would make your life difficult. 10.3.0 users, I suspect, can
    attest to that if they were hit by firewire drive firmware bugs.

    From my perspective, 1.4.2 is much better than 1.4.1, if only in speed
    and memory performance. There are bugs in 1.4.2 which were not in
    1.3.1, but as best as I have found thus far, those bugs and more were in
    1.4.1.
