The 4th update for Java SE 7 was released today.  It's the first Oracle SDK release for Mac OS X and its the first time that JavaFX 2.1 has been bundled with the JDK on Windows and Mac.

Along with this welcome news for Mac users, it was also announced that Java SE 7 Update 4 includes a brand new, next-gen Garbage Collection algorithm 'Garbage First (G1)'.  There's also a new version of the HotSpot JVM (version 23). This new version features some of the promised JRockit JVM feature convergence.

Oracle continues its quest to merge the best of JRockit and HotSpot.
