"There were alot of people that weren't sure if this day would
ever come. Today Java SE 7 finally hit general availability,
marking the first major Java SE release since the release of Java
SE 6 back in 2006.
Yes Java had stalled a bit under Sun and when Oracle moved to
acquire Sun there was a lot of talk about whether or not Oracle
could do better. Java 7 is not a monumental release to be sure but
it does have lots of code cleanup items; the invoke dynamic which
lets other languages use the JVM is pure gold.

as a platform for dynamic languages
