JDK 7: General Availability
2011/07/28 08:06:37 -07:00

Last week the JCP Executive Committee approved Java SE 7 and its component JSRs.

This week the first and only Release Candidate passed all its tests with flying colors.

After 9,494 bug fixes, 1,966 enhancements, 9,018 changesets, 147 builds, and four JSRs, JDK 7 is done.

A giant thank-you to everyone who contributed to this release—from Sun, Oracle, and elsewhere—and especially to those who held on for the long haul of four years, seven months, and seventeen days since JDK 6.

Enjoy!
