The renaissance of Java

The next key iteration of the Java platform & language is currently planned. The stakes, for this highly anticipated release, are high, however Java 7 looks promising. There are several JSRs (203, 294, 291, etc.) in progress and the issue of modularity is also on the docket. A modular Java platform will help address issues of performance (download & startup time, memory footprint), platform scalability (e.g. Java SE scaling to small devices) and packaging (fixing the jar hell issues). These are real customer problems that Java 7 will attempt to address.

The blog to watch for more details is Mark Reinhold's.
