We are now at a point in the 7u4 project where we have a reasonably good understanding on what the end game will look like. I'd therefore like to outline the activities in the coming months. I would also like to remind you that these plans could and probably will change before the release is out the door.

We expect that feature development will be completed by the end of January. After that the focus will turn to bug fixing. During this period of time, SQE will report bugs to development. We expect that the vast majority of bugs have been reported by early March. During the remainder of the month we will work on the bugs still targeted to the release. By the end of March there shouldn't be any bugs targeted to 7u4. We will continuously go through the open bugs and focus our efforts on the most important ones. Some bugs will end up being deferred to JDK 7u6. 

Sometime in February, JDK 7u4 will move to a new forest called jdk7u/jdk7u4. This is where we will stabilize the release and all subsequent builds of 7u4 will be built from this forrest. This means that jdk7u/jdk7u-dev remains open for changes. Anything integrated after we create jdk7u/jdk7u4 will be included in JDK 7u6.

By the time we are through feature complete and have a better idea on the amount of bugs open against 7u4, I will update you on what the last month will look like.
