Wasn't the question, autostart is ALWAYS disabled for jnlp files now (regardless Open Safe downloads setting) , this was functional in 6.0.2, Open using Downloads/Finder isn't the solution when Chrome still autostart .jnlp files.
When a certain .jnlp is regarded safe, autostart should work.

Impact: Visiting a maliciously crafted website could allow a Java Web Start application to be launched automatically even if the Java plug-in is disabled
Description: Java Web Start applications would run even if the Java plug-in was disabled. This issue was addressed by removing JNLP files from the CoreTypes safe file type list, so the Web Start application will not be run unless the user opens it in the Downloads directory.

I had just (finally) got rid of Firefox and Chrome so I could go completely Safari last week... very disappointing.
What is the recommended workaround here???

This worked for me.
Kudos to the author.

Apple needs to stop messing with Java. This is driving me f$%Sing crazy on a regular basis. People do still use Java applications. I cannot get Chrome, Safari, or Firefox to launch a JNLP now after updating the JRE. I've finally just started up an old Windows VM with Java on it. Absolutely ridiculous.
