That's why we called them "snapshots", not "weekly builds". We knew we would occasionally have to hold one up for a day or two, and maybe miss one entirely. But b77 is out now. Thank you for noticing!

Perhaps something to do with this, on Peper Ahé's weblog?

"It was bound to happen My colleagues told me it was a bad idea to post messages about what fixes are going into a build before we have gone through the entire release cycle...

Earlier today Xiomara discovered a nasty problem with Windows and mixed case filenames. We had to rewrite the part of javac that handles files because of an upcoming revision to JSR 199. Good news: we caught the problem before the bits were pushed to java.net. Bad news: we didn't catch it soon enough so we had to back it out in the last minute.

If we're lucky, the changes we had planned for b77 will make it to b78.

Regardless, I'll keep posting what we are putting into the various builds as soon as we have completed our part of the release cycle. I think it provides an interesting view into our daily work."
