Will G1GC be the default GC in JRE 7 eventually?

I’m wondering what the state of the Garbage First Garbage Collector is in current and upcoming JREs, as it is rather sparley documented and no official and up-to-date FAQ can be found.

This is partly in response to the following Stackoverflow Question: http://stackoverflow.com/a/8427161/471478

Please, can you tell us what the state of G1GC is for current and future versions of the OpenJDK? Is it stable, meant to replace current GC?

kind regards,
Julian Fleischer
