Today, Oracle announced that the Java Development Kit (JDK) 7 will be generally available on July 28, 2011. Yesterday, the company submitted the specs for Java 7 and 8 to the Java Community Process Executive Committee for approval. According to Java Chief architect Mark Reinhold's blog, the "results should be available in two weeks." However, as we reported recently, the Apache Software Foundation is threatening to vote against the approval of Java 7.

8 months in advance? I for one would prefer if it was released when it's done, whether that's earlier or later than that date.

So late, so big delay (originally Java 7 was planned for beginning of 2010). Let's hope that in Oracle's hands Java will be developed faster than it was up to now in Sun's hands.
