I just synced, and it appears that it should be in portage now

Code:

[>]   == dev-java/oracle-jdk-bin ((~)1.7.0.6(1.7)^fs -> (~)1.7.0.7(1.7)^fs): Oracle's Java SE Development Kit
[U]   == dev-java/oracle-jre-bin (1.7.0.6(1.7)@08/23/12; (~)1.7.0.6(1.7)^fs -> (~)1.7.0.7(1.7)^fs): Oracle's Java SE Runtime Environment
[>]   == dev-java/sun-jdk ((~)1.6.0.34(1.6)^fs -> (~)1.6.0.35(1.6)^fs): Oracle's Java SE Development Kit


of course, i had already done this the manual way, and cp'd the 1.7.0.6 ebuild to just bump its version to 1.7.0.7 - realized after i did that that I'd sync again and check (id been syncing regularly the last 2 or 3 days to see if this update had been added, and it had not, but it is there as of right now!)

New Oracle Java packages are currently being stabilized [1] and new IcedTea packages are in the works [2].

However, it looks like another vulnerability [3] allowing a remote attacker to escape Java's sandbox and execute arbitrary code may be in the updated versions just released by Oracle.
