blocking issue has been fixed a while back, so once this
dependency gets released to maven central - either later today or
tomorrow, we'll integrate it to 2.7 branch through
https://github.com/eclipse-ee4j/eclipselink/pull/777 and release
2.7.7-RC1 right away (tomorrow). If everything goes well 2.7.7 final is
expected to go out on Thu, April 30.
If there is anything you think must be fixed in 2.7.7 or you'll find
any blocker, let us know, please.
this is still in progress, we're having some issues with infra. In
any case we'd like to have a day or two between RC and final build.
I'll sent out info to users list once the cloud gives us valid RC1 bits.
