Java architect's thoughts on Java 7 and Java 8

I just ran across this link in my email about the Chief Architect of the Java Platform Group at Oracle, with his thoughts about how to proceed on the Java 7 and Java 8 platforms releases. I haven't paid attention to the "New Java Features" world in a while, but it's a short, interesting read about how they're thinking about proceeding with the Java 7 and Java 8 platform releases.

I don't know much about Lamdba (closures), Jigsaw (modularizing the JDK), and Coin (small language changes), but he certainly sparked a debate on his blog about which features to include in the platforms, and when the platforms might be ready. Again, a nice short read about future Java releases.

This website is a little one-man operation. If you found this information helpful, I’d appreciate it if you would share it.
