Java as a language is poised for big changes.
OpenJDK adoption is at an all-time high, and the pace of JDK enhancement proposals are bringing proposed improvements and added functionality to the language faster than ever.
But are these proposed changes taking Java into a new renaissance era? Or will developers continue to hold out for the next Java 8?
