55 New Things in Java 7

At EclipseCon Europe 2011 today, I presented a talk highlighting 55 New Features in Java 7.  I proposed this session because of a good ribbing from some friends that “Java 7 only had a couple new things”, yet I know the actual change set is much more substantial.  So, I had 55 minutes and (more or less) took a minute to introduce 55 new things.  I’m glad we did this talk, as there were almost 150 people in attendance!

You can see the slide by clicking the link above.  You should know that much of the information came from the Java 7 Adoption Guide produced by our tireless documentation team.  You can look there for more information on those, and many other new features.

If you happen to still be at EclipseCon and reading this, please don’t forget to drop by the booth and pick up your free Duke Plushie Keyring!
