    Actually, I do not recommend installing it, as Oracle released Java 7 with some major JVM bugs that can cause loops to work incorrectly or even crash the JVM.

    I recommend going with Java 6 for now and switching to Java 7 after the next update or two, when the bug is fixed.

    Unless you're only doing small stuff, because apparently the bug doesn't show up unless you have really really big loops, but... I think it's good to be safe, just in case.
