Congrats Frank, great news!  Just as a side-note...sounds like Oracle is going to EOL JDK 6 in November of 2012 per the Java SE EOL Policy.  Therefore, if 2.7 goes out with JDK 6 support, perhaps 2.7.x and beyond can gear towards JDK 7.  Just a thought.

Java SE EOL Policy:

Well, Adconion uses Java 1.6 so I should probably stick to that for
now - though I think we will almost certainly put out some kind of
JDK7 only version soonish - Jim Baker and Shashank Bharadwaj have some
really cool invokedynamic work that should appear in a version of
Jython in the future. We could even very cautiously consider a 2.8
version - though we'd need to make it very clear that 3.x was the
future of Jython if we where to enter that potential minefield :)
