    Today Apple released a new Application Loader (2.5.1). One of the first things I noticed when browsing inside the new .app is that it has bundled Java VM. Application Loader does not use OS X Java VM.

    Bundled VM reports version number:

    openjdk version "1.7.0-internal"
    OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0-internal-root_2011_11_07_11_55-b00)
    OpenJDK Server VM (build 21.0-b15, mixed mode)

    This gives me hope that we will see Java 1.7 VM in time with Mountain Lion :cool:
