SR7 is available now.

Lillian, if you can wait until next week, it would be better to go with SR8.
Moving to Accepted state as this is in RH cvs tree
An update from system-x distro team:
Java5 SR9 (32-bit) shipped with RHEL4.8-Alpha has been successfully tested using JGrinder test suite.
We will be testing 64-bit Java5 SR9 on a RHEL4.8-Beta kernel & update the results soon.
Update from LoP test team:
Java5 (build pxp32dev-20081129 (SR9-0 )) shipped with RHEL4.8-Beta has passed tests using jltf test suite and specjbb.
- Tests from Lucio's comment were run in a JS12 machine.
- RHEL4.8-Beta only delivers 32-bit JVMs for ppc.
64-bit Java packages for Power are missing, flipping to FAILS_QA to get this fixed.
ppc64 are now on RHN beta channel
These should also go onto the ISOs in addition to being on RHN.
The PPC64 version will be RHN only. The LACD cannot be multilib -- the installer
will not support it.
