Midway in the March Towards JDK 7


Mark announced the availability of JDK 7 M4 (downloads) which is roughly mid-way through the Milestone RoadMap.

M8 is the last milestone, due in early Jan'10, then are RCs and Final releases. That would give plenty of time before J1'10, except that some details are still pending...

The Feature List is quite interesting. Besides features I already knew about, like G1 GC and InvokeDynamic Support, the list includes a couple of new Network APIs SCTP (Wikipedia) and SDP (Wikipedia) and ECC Support.


Adding a link to the APT replacement (based on JSR 269). See
