when will Java 4.6.2 be available for slackpkg update?

I recently installed slackware 13.37 and used slackpkg to upgrade mozilla-firefox. However, Java 4.5.2 is installed with slackware 13.37 and slackpkg search does not find Java 4.6.2 even though I can find it on the ftp site. Will someone be updating the slackpkg mirrors soon? Thank you.

There are a couple of threads in the Slackware forum here about the recent slow updates, read them and just be patient.
