Support for JRE 1.5 will be the same as with 5.5.3 and JRE 1.4. We will support 6.0.x with 1.5 even after SUN EOL's it this year based on a support agreement RSA has with SUN.
RSA recommends that you download the latest 1.4.2 version which is 1.4.2_18.
For 1.5 installations, please grab the latest version of JRE 5
