It turns out that the Sun developers working on the next JDK have spent the last few months running around in a panic and/or advising Oracle lawyers on how to sue Google, instead of doing something useful. They're now canvassing for opinions on whether they should: (A) release JDK 7 in mid-2012 (yes — 2012), or (B) release what they've got as JDK 7 Lite in mid-2011, then release the bits that haven't been done yet as JDK 8 at the end of 2012. I voted for Plan B, as the better of two poor choices. What do you think?
