According to my math that means we should expect a new JDK7 build "real soon now" - is are the above estimates (given on Feb 26th) still on track?

EDIT: Ah.. just found this: http://openjdk.java.net/projects/jdk7/builds/

Also, what mailing lists are referred to above? The jdk7.dev.java.net page has no activity according to the mailing list archives.

Thanks to the JDK / Open JDK team for an outstanding job. I just downloaded the JDK7 build 25 (right on schedule) and it runs our test cases very nicely. Congratulations.

Excellent question. We're at-- what, seven weeks since the last one? Did Java 7 suddenly hit its expiry date while I wasn't watching?

With all due respect I am aware how difficult it is to manage an open source project the size of the JDK. I am simply trying to get some time-line guidance. Right now there is no guidance or information coming from Sun on when either jdk1.6.0_10 or jdk1.7.0 early access updates will again be available.

As always, thanks for the responses...

Steve

There is. Feel free to join the openjdk mail lists where this is discussed.

The workspaces should be open for business in the next couple of weeks,
it'll probably take a couple more weeks for the first promoted build after that.

And thus my original question is answered. Thank you.
