As i recall the AMD64 plugin is unstable and has not been released by sun for public use. However the update 12 should be added to Intrepid and Hardy if no bugs are present that will cause unstabilty

Sun Java 6u12 is an official release for all platforms. I must add to the votes for it, as it has a working 64-bit plugin for Web browsers which is considerably more stable in my usage here than any of the other Java plugins available in Intrepid, including the OpenJDK one. Please reconsider this backport to Intrepid.
