JavaFX Crashing JVM on OS X 7u7 and 7u6

Can anyone give me an estimate on when 2.2.2 is expected to be released? I realize you can't commit to anything, but I'm just after a rough guess. We just had Java 7u7 released so there is u8 and u9 before we get to 7u10 where this is currently fixed. It seems so far away. I'm guessing this is definitely not going to make 7u8?
(Believe it or not, it is currently rather difficult to have either a Swing or JavaFX application that doesn't crash when using a file chooser. JavaFX has this issue on OS X and Swing has bug #7160713 on Windows. QA isn't happy when there is a good chance that your application will crash when a user tries to open a document or save their work.)
