The following VMs are available for generation-2:
1) Oracle JDK 1.7.0.21 [oracle-jdk-bin-1.7]
*) Sun JDK 1.6.0.45 [sun-jdk-1.6]

I still have jdk 1.6 set as system vm. I remember about a year or two ago I tried switching to 1.7 but I got lots of build failures. Can I now safely switch to 1.7 and do away completely with 1.6?

As long as you don't have anything that depends on virtual/jdk-1.6.*, you should be fine.

Does everything now build against 1.7?
