Bug Description

I'm an avid Java developer. And rely on the simplicity of Ubuntu + Eclipse + JDK (openjdk-6) for my main environment. A few days ago, JDK 7 was released. How much would it take to see openjdk-7 as part of the official repository? I don't want to manually install it. I prefer it got updated through the Ubuntu's own update manager.

affects: ubuntu → openjdk-7 (Ubuntu)
Changed in openjdk-7 (Ubuntu):
status: New → Fix Released

Thanks is just not enough to express my gratitude. Didn't find it in 11.04 but there are just two more months until 11.10. Which is just awesome. Keep up the good work guys.
