JDK watch: Looking good for M3 and JavaOne


You'll see in the latest JDK 7 build that the new G1 collector is getting a good bashing, with a number of important bugs fixed.

The preview implementation of JSR 292 is in, and the rumors that reached the all hearing Planetarium ears turned out to be true: Charlie's trying it out in JRuby, and so's Frank with Jython.

So together with compressed object pointers, NIO 2 (which Alan has been blogging about at length - from the new filesystem API, to monitoring direct buffers), an important tweak to the classloader, SDP API and Solaris implementation, and SCTP support, which Chris blogs about today at length, things are in great shape for Milestone 3, which will be released at JavaOne.
