Pleasant surprise

Yesterday I wanted to report a bug on the EventQueue class in OpenJDK which causes a deadlock in some scenarios, only to find that it already has been fixed in OpenJDK7.

Now I only wish that I could report and fix bugs regarding the JDK’s browser plugin. I wonder if Oracle will eventually make true the promise of open sourcing webstart and plugin too?
