Oracle is releasing technology previews of both Java SE 7 and Java FX 2.0 on Mac OS X, with plans to release Java SE 7 on Mac OS X for developers in the second quarter of 2012 followed by a consumer version later in 2012.
“Oracle remains firmly committed to advancing Java SE and will continue to collaborate with the Java community on the evolution of the Java platform through OpenJDK and the Java Community Process. We are very pleased with the progress we’ve made together over the past year – particularly, with the Java SE 7 release,” said Adam Messinger, vice president of development, Oracle Fusion Middleware. “It’s an exciting time in Java development and we’ll continue to move Java forward with updates like the Mac OS x port and our plans for Java SE 8.”
Plans for the next version of Java SE 8 are moving forward and Oracle is announcing a revised roadmap for a release with expanded scope, with availability expected in summer 2013.
