behind the times: Java 7 Update from Mark Reinhold at Devoxx

The changes in Java 7 will come from Sun and others.

Update: And here is a good thread on the lack of closures …

Ricky’s technical blog: Java Just Died (no closures in Java 7)

So it’s confirmed. Despite James Gosling wanting closures, despite 3 working closure prototype compilers, despite every other JVM language supporting closures, Java 7 will not have closures.
