It's really a sad news My favorite features of JDK 7 are invokedynamic and Jigsaw. I hope that Oracle can concentrate more on the JVM rather than the Java language itself so that other JVM-based languages can benefit from it.

There are rumors that invokedynamic might be rolled into one of the Java 6 updates (https://coderanch.com/t/509272/java/java/Dynamic-Language-Support-Java#2302024), but the other stuff I could do without. In fact, I'd be happy if the language gets frozen right now, and they concentrate on performance, bug fixes, and the odd class library enhancement.

There's still a bit of horse-trading going, and with things like the Apple announcement (gifting a majority of their implementation to openJDK) means re-allocation of resources. ARM for JDBC recently made it in for example :-)
 
All of the following truths are shameless lies. But what about this tiny ad:
