We (DKPro project family) may switch to Java 7 before long since some of the
dependencies we use are already using or upgrading to Java 7 (e.g. ark-tweet-nlp
and LanguageTool). I have a feeling that others will follow with the discussion
apparently going on across many projects.

Personally, even between Java 5 and Java 7, I don't see much gain. I'm really
looking forward to closures in Java 8 though.
