JDK7 b05 compiler fixes
By Dkildahl -Oracle on Jun 01, 2011
6192945: Declaration order of interdependent generic types should not matter
6278587: Compiler fails to infer correct type for under-constrained type variables
6356673: javac incorrectly generates "reference to <xx> is ambiguous"
6495506: Cast inserted by generics can cause IllegalAccessError
I cannot predict when this build will be available for download because of the upcoming holidays. If you wonder why the list is smaller this time, consider this: we just launched JDK 6. Naturally, we have been focusing on that release as well as looking towards the future. Besides, we still have a ton of stuff to figure out in relation to open source.
Speaking of open sourcing: I made the ultimate sacrifice and installed Windows.
Do not try this at home!
Fortunately, my trusty laptop still has a real operating system.
