Why Postpone?

why postpone features so that JDK 7 can get out of the pipes fast


There are some super amazing performance improvements added to Java 7 (Tiered Compilation, Escape Analysis, Optimisations to remove bound checks, etc). Just the really nice performance boost is IMO worth releasing a new version for, why hold up cool things like this for another 2 years?
