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."

I thought Oracle was supposed to take over making the Mac builds with Java 7, but I see nothing. Maybe they have to wait for Lion?

Wow, that page says a lot. Now I understand why It took Apple months to patch vulnerabilities. Mac OSX JSE had quite a bit of apple specific changes to it. Much more complicated than just applying the Sun patch.
