Java 7 for .Net - IKVM Not Slouching

I've always been impressed with IKVM, a compiler that converts Java Byte Code into .NET CLR byte code in the form of assemblies. It is astonishing how much core (and a lot of non-core) Java re-compiles into .Net with relatively little effort.

Shortly after the release of Java 7, the IKVM team has already released a development snapshot of IKVM supporting it.

After a massive amount of work, we finally have a new development snapshot based on OpenJDK 7 b147. There is still a lot of work to do to implement all the new functionality, but at least all the OpenJDK code has now been integrated.
Nice work guys.
