This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I was at JavaOne in San Francisco last week, and one of the topics was ofcourse the next version of Java, JDK 7. Sun announced the schedule - there are going to be a number of milestone beta releases this year, the release candidate will be released in February 2010. So don't expect the final release of JDK 7 before March 2010.
