VDT 2.0.0p18 Update
On 2010-07-01, the VDT team announced the release of VDT 2.0.0p18.
We have switched from Java 5 to Java 6: Java 5 is no longer in the
VDT, and all software in the VDT that was using Java 5 (that was
most of our software, other than Bestman), is now using Java
6. This was done because Java 5 is past it's end-of-life, and
security updates are no longer available.

If you installed VDT 2.0.0 after VDT 2.0.0p18 was released on
2010-07-01, you do not need to do any of these update operations
because you will have 2.0.0p18.
Recommended method: VDT Updater
We strongly encourage users to update the VDT using the VDT updater
VDT Updater Instructions
Not recommended: Pacman update
If you really want to do it the hard way,
instructions for updating by using
Pacman directly are available on another page. This method is
hard to follow and error prone.
