I need to figure out bug #605430 before I can build the -bin packages. This is high priority so watch this space.
Bumps done. Sorry for the wait. icedtea-126.96.36.199 has been removed. amd64 and x86 teams, please stabilize icedtea-bin.
Added to an existing GLSA.
amd64 team, you were too slow. 188.8.131.52 is vulnerable and I'm about to commit the next version.
Cleanup will happen via bug 619458.
