Java "After an initial round of testing we've declared build 147 to be the first Release Candidate of JDK 7. There are only thirteen changes in this build. Over half of them are administrivial updates that don't affect the actual code; the remainder are true showstoppers, including several hard VM crashes and a JIT correctness bug identified by an Eclipse unit test. If no new showstopper issues are reported, and if JSR 336 and the component JSRs pass their Final Approval Ballots in the JCP, then this will be the GA build for release later this month per the schedule posted back in January."

Plus, technologies like Google Web Toolkit (GWT) bring sanity to web development. The only cross-browser issues you have to deal with are CSS issues. It doesn't matter how many versions of Firefox will be released this year, since GWT will sort it out for you.


** groan ** ... not this really ...

GWT actually makes web dev harder IMO ... jQuery is far quicker and easier to learn and is tested much more throughly ... and you still need to know JS when using GWT anyway so you might as well learn JS.
