Victor Noël this is a user list question which is off topic here.
OS X installer is broken due to this issue. See bug #28438. In addition, Apple has added an updated download link to the Java 6 dependency, https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1572?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US.
Paul Suh if you know of any regressions caused by this please make sure they are filed separately and marked as blocking this one. Do not reopen.
