Which JDK 7 version gonna include Closures support ? I'm curious to test this exciting new feature but now i can not see any build supporting it.

For now, you have to build it yourself. It's not so hard. I did that for the 1st time (on Linux - Fedora 12) and it took me just a couple of hours. Start by doing a check-out (clone) of the Mercurial forest that contains the lambda prototype:

hg fclone

Read the README and off you go...

Thanks for the info about building. Could we also get any information on the original question? Is there any kind of idea when there might be a JDK 7 pre-release that includes the closure support?

Or, if it's already there by now, let me know. I just didn't see it in the docs when I went to get the pre-release.
