Oracle Java 7 supported platforms updated but still no VMware or Microsoft support

As I’ve blogged about initially Oracle releases Java 7 with odd restrictions and then followed up with Oracle to update Java 7 planned supported system configurations, Henrik Stahl of Oracle said the supported platforms page would be updated and it has – but not with the updates he listed.

As of 11.40am, the Planned Supported System Configurations for Java now re-directs to here where the virtualization section has been modified from the previous revision with

1) Oracle VM 2.2 is now supported (previously just Oracle VM 3.X which is not released yet)
2) VMware (capitalization corrected) and Microsoft Hypervisors are still listed as not supported.

I understand Oracle is a large organization and things take time to update, but the page has now been updated and is still reading that VMware and Microsoft Hypervisors are not supported.
