Java SE 7 Developer Preview

It’s probably been 9 months since I’ve played with Java SE 7, and now the Developer Preview window is just about over.

I’ve been on a crazy release schedule since late October, so I haven’t had the time or energy to go play with it.  I’m downloading now though to test out our software.  The GA date is set for mid-summer 2011.

Go get it HERE and try to break it :)

On a related note, it is looking more and more definite that a version 7 release will not be ready for OS X at launch.  We’ve been told as much, but there’s been a bit of wishful thinking on everybody’s part none the less.  It seems a shame, as OS X Lion will not be shipping with Java out of the box (and the version you download from Apple does not include applet support).
