Java 7 release candidate 1 has been released. Those people who thought Java 7 final would be released today (7th) – that is not the case as I mentioned in my previous post. It is simply being launched from a marketing standpoint. It will in fact be released as announced originally on 28 July. The real question now is how long before it gets to production for all of us. Common banks. Show a little courage and adopt early.
Happy Birthday to me. This year, on this special day, I’ll be having dinner with some of my friends and then watching the fireworks displays of Guy Fawkes Day and Diwali in Trafalgar Square. I guess I’m fortunate to have two firework festivals on the same day as my birthday this year.
