Java is still cool to me

These days I read a lot about Scala and other new languages. I didn't get in too deep with these things, although they appear sometimes nice to me. But some days ago I once again dreamed about coding in Java ( I might not be a very clean developer, I think I suffer still from my C64 style coding when I started off with software development). When I read about whats coming up with Java7 I'm sometimes a little disappointed, I truly did expect some more of the cool features that have been discussed. But we have very nice free tools availably and there is great software around, though I think software development still needs prgamatic evolution. But over all I love coding in Java and I hope I can do that for some years to come. What do you think, do we need revolution or evolution ?
