Updated Java 6 EOL date

In its recently updated Java SE Support Roadmap, Oracle provides an updated date for Java 6 to go EOL (End Of Life). It used to be July 2012, but has now been postponed to November 2012.

Basically, it means that after November 201 Oracle will no longer post updates of Java SE 6 to its public download sites. Developers are encouraged to switch to the latest version.
