Moving to OpenJDK as the Official Java SE 7 Reference Implementation

Some interesting news from Henrik Stahl: Oracle will provide a Java SE 7 Reference Implementation based entirely on OpenJDK and make it available under GPLv2 (with Classpath exception) for open-source implementors (and BCL for commercial implementors).

Henrik also says that the existing TCK license for OpenJDK will be updated to cover Java SE 7.

It still sounds strange hearing official Java news from Oracle.
