Just a heads-up guys.
I had JRE update 26 pushed onto client machines yesterday and it broke an important client-server app.
This point release changes the serialVersionUID for ImageIcon. The app in question sends images from the server to the cients via a simple writeObject/readObject, which fails at the client end with a
java.io.InvalidClassException: javax.swing.ImageIcon; local class incompatible: stream classdesc serialVersionUID = 532615968316031794, local class serialVersionUID = -962022720109015502
Beware, I don't how many more of these there are in this release
