Java 7u5 and 6u33 released

Toby reminded us that Oracle is releasing Java 7 update 5 and Java 6 update 33 today.

Working links to release notes with security content and the like are more than welcome.

It seems like Sun are now pushing JRE7 to JRE6 installs. Does anyone have any thoughts or comments around compatibility between the 2 releases? We were of the mind to hold off JRE7 until updates to JRE6 had stopped.
