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 want to believe, but JSR292 doesn't seem to mention tailcalls (http://jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=292) and the Da Vinci page (http://openjdk.java.net/projects/mlvm/subprojects.html) doesn't seem to indicate they're in the jvm yet.

I might have misread. More precisely
http://java.dzone.com/articles/introducing-java-7-moving slides mention tailcalls.
