Java SE 7 is now GA

We are very happy to announce that JDK 7 is now GA. The release is on time according to the announcement we made at JavaOne last year and with no significant changes to release content. I would like to express a heartfelt thank you to all those at Oracle and elsewhere in the community that has helped with this release (honorable mentions).

With this important milestone behind us, our engineers are already busy with other projects such as JavaFX 2.0 and JDK 8. If you want to know more about JDK 7 or what's in the pipe, check out this podcast, the videos from the Java 7 launch and come and join us at JavaOne 2011!

To quote Mark Reinhold: "We'll try to fix 7070134 (http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=7070134) and related bugs in an early JDK 7 update release. In the meantime the -XX:-UseLoopPredicate option is an effective workaround."

Hernik,

Is there a target date for the MacOS port?

Regards,
Pablo
